Mississippi Supreme Court denies petition to undo open carry block

Following yesterday's State Supreme Court setback, Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood will need to make his points on the new "open carry" law before a trial court Examiner – by David Codrea

A three-judge panel of the Mississippi Supreme Court ruled yesterday against the state attorney general’s petition to undo an injunction blocking a firearms open carry law from going into effect.

“After due consideration, we find that the State’s Combined Petition should be denied for procedural reasons,” the order signed by Justice James W. Kitchens declared. “In denying the Petition, the panel expresses no opinion respecting the merits of the matters pending before the circuit court.”  

On Monday, Attorney General Jim Hood filed a petition to vacate a temporary injunction that blocked House Bill 2 from being implemented after Hinds Country Circuit Court Judge Winston Kidd issued a temporary restraining order. Later that day, attorney Lisa Mishune Ross filed a response concluding “[T]his Court should deny the State’s extraordinary Petition and allow the trial court to properly hear and rule on the merits of the constitutionality of H.B.2.”

“The Temporary Restraining Order in question lasts only a few days: briefing is due in the trial court tomorrow, while a full hearing is scheduled on July 8,” the response stated.

“So we go forward now in trial court,” a source close to the case told Gun Rights Examiner.

    I’m no lawyer, but I think that when a panel of judges rules against a petition to undo an injunction that’s blocking a law, it might be perfectly legal to hang everyone who works in the court just so we can figure out what the hell is going on.

    “Court denies petition to undo open carry block”…
    I have a high IQ, but this stumps me…
    Knowing government, I will assume that this is just another erosion of our right to self defense.

    Too many negatives in the sentence.
    Can not understand.
    But, it is typical lawyer speak.
