    What part of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" is so hard to understand ???


    James: Ain't this a little showy, Pa? I mean with the guns out an' all?

    Big Jake: James, don't be fooled. They all know what's in this box, and they all want it. what we're doin' with this audacious DISplay is tellin' 'em they can't have it. Who knows, we may be savin' some poor miscreant soul's life this way.

    Constitutional carry in MS would be awesome. But wouldn't it be simpler to amend 93-37-1 to say something like "Anyone who uses or attempts to use...(list of weapons)...shall be upon conviction punished as followed..."?

    When is the best time to contact my local representative about this bill?
