Severe weather: MSI will not be at Riverdale Festival nor the Gun Show
MSI deeply appreciates the dedication of it's volunteers and the support of it's visitors. As much as we would like to participate in the Appalachian Gun Show and the Riverdale Park Day this weekend, some events and vendors are canceling and we expect more. In light of this and the severe weather, we are canceling our participation with the planned MSI Events this weekend, October 3 and 4. MSI will not be at Riverdale Festival nor at the Appalachian Gun show.
We look forward to seeing you at our future events.
In a huge decision authored by Judge O'Scannlain, a split panel of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has ruled that Hawaii's ban on open carry outside the home in that state violates the Second Amendment under any level of scrutiny. The decision, Young v. Hawaii, can be found here. The decision is very scholarly, carefully reasoned and a powerful statement that the Second Amendment is not a "second-class" right or a constitutional "orphan."
