AG issues opinion on carrying firearms on public property

Attorney General Jim Hood said the "open-carry" of firearms can be restricted on public property in an opinion issued to the city of Corinth. However, the Attorney General also enhanced permit holders could still carry firearms on public property as "a municipality has limited authority to prohibit" them from doing so.

Looks like Johnny Horhn was packing a 9mm semi-auto Beretta at the time of his drunk driving arrest.

Since DonnerKay and her pardner repeatedly refer to semi-automatic weapons as "assault weapons" let's see if their progressive vitriol results in a condemnation of the clearly impaired Senator John Horhn (D-Jackustan).

Does Johnny legally own the gun Donner? Pardner Todd should his rights be taken away since he was in possession of the "assault weapon" but clearly skunked out of his gourd? While Johnny can legally carry does he have a concealed carry permit and was he packing earlier that night while conducting his meeting inside the State Capitol? Will You "call him out" Donner or tuck tail and run away from yet another Donkeycrat and their questionable actions?

Remember interns, this isn't the first time Johnny has driven drunk toting his assault weapon, only the first time (we know of) that he got caught. With the VIP courtesies the patrol officer and JPD management were attempting to lavish on Johnny, who really knows how many times he's been pulled over before but smart enough to make that face-saving phone call?

11:20 "making the face-saving phone call". OR SUCCESSFULLY BULLYING ANOTHER OFFICER?

I have read the AG's Opinion. I feel like Captain Picard after he finds himself mysteriously transported to the American West in the 1880s, and wonders if he will ever escape back to the present. I wish we could send Andy Gipson to 1885 Tombstone, where he could finally be happy and we would be rid of his psychotic fantasies.

Is This About Hood Or Hohrn? said...

The opinion raises more questions than it answers.

1) It alludes to public places whose primary purpose is the sale of alcohol. Are there any?

2) It states universities, parades and schools are areas where guns are prohibited. Remembering this opinion speaks only to PUBLIC places, the opinion does not exclude private parades, schools or universities, rather it seems to cover them.

3) His opinion piece seems to confuse several public venues with private ones.

Wouldn't he have better served the populace if he had not tried to restrict his opinion to public places? As it is, 'we' are collectively right where we were six months ago, assuming there will have to be judicial proceedings of various types to sort it all out. Nancy Pelosi may have been right.

Did you read the U.S. and Mississippi constitutions also?

We could just have duels again , too. That would reduce our court costs considerably and disputes could be settled in an open field with seconds.
Why not let everyone carry an AK 47 around just like they do in Afghanistan or Somalia? They are certainly countries where fire arms have enhanced individual freedom !
Of course, I no longer have the freedom to worship without the fear some idiot's has his gun go off in his pocket or walk down the street without fear that someone who once could pass a course has now developed Alzheimer's or dementia or stopped taking his meds or started using drugs.

The " fallacy alert" is really funny!
So , you don't buy into the registering guns " slippery slope" fallacy(s)?

Nevermind that gun registration never led to dictatorships in history but we can see Somalia and Afghanistan gun toting every day!

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
