Court Rules Missouri Must Recognize Gay Marriages From Other States – What About Gun Reciprocity?

Liberals should be very careful in opening this door, because it could easily be applied to gun permits

(Buzzfeed) Missouri must recognize the marriages of same-sex couples that were granted elsewhere, state Judge Dale Youngs ruled on Friday.

“[T]o the extent these laws prohibit plaintiffs’ legally contracted marriages from other states from being recognized here, they are wholly irrational, do not rest upon any reasonable basis, and are purely arbitrary,” Youngs wrote.

The ruling followed a hearing in September on the case, which was brought by 10 same-sex couples represented by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The same could be said about gun laws in many Left leaning States, regarding “irrational, no reasonable basis, and purely arbitrary”. The judge uses the 14th Amendment to make his case, pointing towards “equal protection”. If Liberals want to open this door, let’s open it. If someone has a concealed carry permit, according to this order they would be fully allowed to carry in exactly the same way in, say, New York, as they would in their home state.

Republican/non-gun grabby States should go further, and provide inexpensive permits for open carry, which would mean Democrat/gun-grabby States would be required to allow those citizens with the permits to open carry. Otherwise, the gun-grabby States would be in violation of the 14th Amendment. Also, the Full Faith And Credit Clause (Article IV, Section 1). It’s time for Republicans/Conservatives to turn the tables.

    Vermont probably the mist liberal state ,allows fellons to own guns
    Should their be receprocity ?

  2. Conservative Beaner says:

    I don’t know John. Anyone in Vermont that loves their freedom to carry firearms but votes for Democrats who want to take away their right to free speech and freedom of religion must be nuts and should not be allowed to carry a firearm in the first place.

    Teach,

    I would think you would want the states to decide on an individual basis. In fact, almost all states with CCW permits honor those of other states already. I expected you to know that.

    For example, Missouri honors all other states’ CCW permits (except Vermont’s). Now, we also honor other states’ marriages.

  4. Jeffery says:

    beaner,

    So only Republicans should be allowed to carry guns? Are you familiar with the Constitution? And you call liberals fascists.

  5. I would think you would want the states to decide on an individual basis.

    Normally, I’d agree, except the Constitution lays out the foundation for reciprocity in order to bind the States together as one nation.

    In fact, almost all states with CCW permits honor those of other states already. I expected you to know that.

    In fact, no. If I had a CCW I would be arrested in NY, NJ, California, and several other states. In fact, there was a recent issue where a Pa. mom was arrested and threatened with jail for having her gun and a legal PA CCW.

    Yes Jeff,

    I am familiar with the Constitution and I see it being undermined everyday by Democrats and Liberals all over the country.

    Dems and Libs restrict free speech of Conservatives on college campus.

    The President chooses which laws he wants to enforce such as parts of Obamacare and immigration laws.

    The NSA violates the 4th Amendment everyday. Dems complained when Bush was doing it but nary a peep when Obama does it. Oh by the way I didn’t like it when Bush did it either.

    And it is the Democrats who want to restrict the rights of returning veterans by trying to declare them nuts.

  7. Jeffery says:

    Beaner,

    Do you really think that Democrats shouldn’t have guns or were you being silly?

  8. Stosh says:

    Considering all the mass shooting have been carried out by Democrat left wing loons, you may have a good idea there. Restricting guns from the people responsible for mass shootings in all states, stop the gun nuts, leave the law abiding Republican gun owners alone.
