    Judge orders Iowa sheriff to issue gun permit

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/c...,3942729.story

    I came across the above article today. An interesting case, a sheriff denies a citizen the right to carry a weapon because of what that citizen has said and believes. The case is more of a First Amendment one than a Second Amendment one but sets a good precedent regardless. A bit sad that it took so long for the case to run it's course.

    What a heartwarming story!


    "Bennett also ordered Weber to take a college-level course on the U.S. Constitution."
    While this is basically the judicial equivalent of a "bitch-slap" to the tyrannical sheriff, it really should be a requirement for all prospective peace officers prior to employment.

    This includes more detail about the case, and about the schooling the sheriff got and will have to get.
