    OC activists cheer federal judge’s Colorado ruling



    Open Carry activists across the country, including the Pacific Northwest, are cheering a federal judge’s ruling Thursday that declared a ban on guns in post office parking lots to be unconstitutional, and they will likely be talking about it today at an Open Carry picnic at the Kitsap County park in Port Orchard.
    The case, brought by Colorado resident Tab Bonidy — represented by the Mountain States Legal Foundation — caused quite a ripple because it is the third time (the other two being inMaryland and Illinois) in which a federal court has confirmed that the right to bear arms extends outside the home.What has their attention is the summation of U.S. District Judge Richard P. Matsch, who concluded, “In sum, openly carrying a firearm outside the home is a liberty protected by theSecond Amendment.”
    Bonidy lives in a rural area outside Avon, and he routinely carries a handgun for personal protection. He also has to retrieve his mail at the Avon Post Office, but was not able to leave his gun in his vehicle when picking up his mail because regulations prohibited him from having a firearm even in the parking lot.
    In sum, openly carrying a firearm outside the home is a liberty protected by the
    Second Amendment."—Judge Richard P. Matsch

    That ruling is one more small chink in the wall of infringement that must be torn down.

    Other walls have come down, so must this.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.
