Ruling On Same-Sex Marriage Mandates Nationwide Concealed Carry Reciprocity

This week the Supreme Court redefined what marriage in America is about and decided that an individual’s behavioral choice was grounds to create a new “right” in the U.S. Constitution and declared that same-sex marriage is to be honored across all 50 states. 

By SCOTUS’ own ruling on same-sex marriage, they have mandated nationwide concealed carry reciprocity, that’s right, they have granted us the right, which we already had, to conceal carry.

As reported by BearingArms.com:

“If you’re following any of the various media outlets this morning, you’re probably aware that the U.S. Supreme Court has just extended gay marriage to all 50 states. The Supreme Court ruled Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry nationwide, in a historic decision that invalidates gay marriage bans in more than a dozen states.

Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court’s ruling on Friday means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage. The outcome is the culmination of two decades of Supreme Court litigation over marriage, and gay rights generally.”

The Court used Section 1 of the Fourteen Amendment to justify its argument, which reads: Amendment XIV Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law, which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Now here is the kicker, as the writer articulately brings to light: “By using the Constitution in such a manner, the Court argues that the Due Process Clause extends “certain personal choices central to individual dignity and autonomy” accepted in a majority of states across the state lines of a handful of states that still banned the practice.

The vast majority of states are “shall issue” on the matter of issuing concealed carry permits, and enjoy reciprocity with a large number of other states. My North Carolina concealed carry permit, for example, was recognized yesterday as being valid in 36 states, which just so happened to be the number of states in which gay marriage was legal yesterday. But 14 states did not recognize my concealed carry permit yesterday. Today they must.

  1. You may want to check out all the documents involving Drake v. Jerejian. If that somehow is resurrected or if another case having similar facts works its way through the courts, we could be seeing a “Shall Issue New Jersey.”

  2. We need Term Limits on the unelected black robed Fools! Term Limits on Congress also, to prevent all these career Leeches who now corrupt our Nation thru their own Greed and Lust for Money and Power! Our Nation needs to rid itself of all the RINOs and DEMONs from our Nation. RINO’s, such as Boehner, are as corrupt as they come and he bows down to the Kenyan in the Oval Office! Our nation truly needs a Cleansing! The Leftist keep pushing it, and we will have that Cleansing, which they will regret!
