As Some have noticed, someone at SCOTUS has requested a response from the Feds in Masciandaro. More about that in this
In Peterson v. Kilroy, et al (was Garcia, was LaCabe), on Sunday Aug. 7th, a reply was due (Aug. 8th), by Gray Peterson and was filed.
As you may (or not) recall, the State filed its reply and argued about its Concealed Carry laws. The City/County of Denver refused to respond, leaving any defense to the State.
In this reply, Gray points out that the matter before the court is not a matter of the type of carry. It is a matter that Denver requires a State CWP in order to carry at all (openly or concealed). In as much as the City/County of Denver refuses to recognize all out of state CWP's, then the City/County is restricting such persons from exercising their fundamental right to self protection.
The attached reply brief is a good read and is entirely amusing. It is also written so that anyone can understand the issues of the case. Enjoy.
