    Full Faith And Credit

    Recently a judge ruled that a state must offer same sex couples the health care coverage benefits as heterosexual couples if they were married in a state that recognizes same sex marriage due to the full faith and credit clause of the constitution.
    Under that premise wouldn't a state (say California) be required to acknowlege a persons right to open carry if they are from a state that recognises this right (for instance South Dakota)? Just curious.

    You would think so.

    But, there's never been a case on that point that made it all the way to SCOTUS. So, Kalifornia would just arrest you and force you to defend yourself at vast expense all the way to SCOTUS, and then hope they ruled in your favor, something I wouldn't trust them to do. Not at all.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    First you must obey the laws of the state in which you are then presently standing, whether that be California or Virginia. It is that state that will charge you for any violation of their laws......and the defense for that which you suggest will not be cheap.

    There is no reciprocity of permits and no federal law protecting you while OCing, unless you wish to claim the 2A as your defense - unfortunatly good luck with that.

    Anyone notice that a mod replied to the thread and that he did not bother to move it to the Social Lounge?
    Didn't move it to the Social Lounge because it is on topic where it is.

    I have bolded and highlighted so that you may better see that which you missed the first time..
