It's not much of a right when you have to seek a license first....I guess everyone will be happy with Firearm Carry Insurance when it becomes a requirement down the road. Scalia gave a hint to the protected carry mode in Heller when he cited this case...Not too hard to figure it out, but the NRA, SAF/Alan Gura and company just don't seem to get it.

From DC v Heller:

Robertson v Baldwin 165 U.S. 275 (1897) " .....the right of the people to keep and bear arms (Art. II) is not infringed by laws prohibiting the carrying of concealed weapons;.."


Bouvier's Law Dictionary...This is the legal definition of a license.

LICENSE, contracts. A right given by some competent authority to do an act, which without such authority would be illegal. The instrument or writing which secures this right, is also called a license. Vide Ayl. Parerg, 353; 15 Vin. Ab. 92; Ang. Wat. Co. 61, 85.

Exercising a constitutional right does not become an illegal act without first seeking permission from the government.

Hopefully the SCOTUS will take the Embody v Cooper open carry case sitting at its door as we speak. A pro se case with no help from the NRA and no mention about it by any of the gun rags. Pretty god damn sad to say the least.
