I have gotten fed up with "public officials" who deny and interfere with the right (in whatever form it exists in the relevant jurisdiction) to carrry or have firearms.
The New Orleans situation is one. Recent problems in Georiga are another. Experiences people have had exercising their rights under 18U.S.C. 926A (federal provision allowing possession of unloaded, out-of-reach firearms if travelling through a retarded anti-gun jurisdiction) are another.
I propose a solution: a federal law, making it a felony with a mandatory minimum prison sentence for interfering with clearly granted gun rights. I also propose another federal law stripping public officials from civil immunity (both from suit and liability) for such interference. I would pattern such statutes on the already existing Civil Rights statutes in 42 U.S.C.- - you can go to jail for interfering or denying someone Constitutionally granted civil rights and you can get sued for it, too, big time (ask cops about 42 U.S.C. 1983 actions).
Who says more gun laws are bad? They don't HAVE to be- - you can use legislation to BUILD rights as well as restrict them.
