Ready for Shot Show Industry Day at the Range

I drove up from Yuma to Las Vegas today, to go to the Industry day at the Range tomorrow.  It is nice to be one of the media invited to this event, which most of the industry from around the world uses to highlight and show off the latest in technological improvements and new products.  If I want to take my laptop, they will have media tents to do stories from, complete with wi-fi to blog directly to the net.  Pretty cool stuff.

Always nice to run into professional colleagues as well.  I am looking forward to seeing Alan Korwin, Robert Farago, Rob Morse, Fredy Riehl, and many others.  The in box is filling up with invitations to visit particular booths out at the range.  It will be a busy day tomorrow.

I open carried on the way up, no problems.  I did, however, take care to avoid California, by following AZ 95 up through Bullhead City, directly into Nevada.  It adds a few miles, but an advantage is that Bullhead City seems to have the cheapest gas along the whole route.  I saw it there at $1.77 a gallon.  It will be nice when we get national reciprocity.

A question nobody seems to be able to answer is how can any state prevent the exercise of a guaranteed federal right? the tenth amendment requires all states to recognize the federal constitution about their own constitution. As an American citizen we have the right to exercise our constitutional rights anywhere in this land. Article six clause two says the federal constitution is the supreme law of this (entire) land so how can any state law be above the federal constitution and the second amendment? States rights stop at the division of the tenth amendment. If the issue is addressed in the federal constitution it is not a states rights issue. The US congress can not change the second amendment and the individual states can not change the federal constitution. therefore the second amendment is required to be upheld and enforced by both the federal government and the state governments. Shall Not infringe applies to both.
