Quote of the day–Mary King

[The County should not] provide a place for people to display guns for worship as deities for the collectors who treat them as icons of patriotism.

Mary King
July 20, 1999
Attributed to an Alameda County Press Release in plaintiff’s brief.
[Reading the brief was enlighting to me. The case isn’t really about a misguided attempt in “preventing crime” or accidental shootings. The county even admits that isn’t the reason. It’s about bigotry and deliberate repression of free expression. This gives me hope that the 9th circuit giving the case another look might not be about throwing out the 2nd Amendment incorporation finding.–Joe]

  1. Glad to see you’re reading it. The Calguns Foundation just received official confirmation of its 501(c)(3) tax-deductible charity status. Next up is qualifying for that payroll deduction thing you use for SAF.

  2. “[The County should not] provide a place for people to display guns for worship as deities”
    [The County should not] provide a place for people to display dogs for worship as deities (Don’t tell the AKC!)
    [The County should not] provide a place for people to display cats for worship as deities (Don’t tell the cat fanciers!)
    [The County should not] provide a place for people to display horses for worship as deities (Rodeo? 4H?)
    [The County should not] provide a place for people to display cars for worship as deities
    [The County should not] provide a place for people to display boats for worship as deities
    [The County should not] provide a place for people to display motorcycles for worship as deities
    [The County should not] provide a place for people to display young women for worship as deities (Just a guess that they have beauty pageants, and/or a “Miss Alameda Fair”…)

    So, just what are they going to do with those fairgrounds, anyway…?
