A Judge getting somthing "right" for a change

For your Viewing, and thought

Federal judge orders Osceola County sheriff to issue gun permit.
He requires sheriff to take First Amendment course

PRIMGHAR, Iowa -- U.S. District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett has ordered Osceola County Sheriff Douglas L. Weber to issue a gun permit to a resident and to complete a college-level course involving the First Amendment.

Bennett’s written decision on Wednesday involves the case of Paul Dorr, of Ocheyedan, who was denied a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

Dorr and his son, Alexander, were denied gun permits after being engaged in extensive First Amendment activity -- protesting, passing out leaflets and writing letters to the editor -- the opinion notes.

“The court finds a tsunami, a maelstrom, an avalanche, of direct, uncontroverted evidence in Sheriff Weber’s own testimony to conclude beyond all doubt that he unquestionably violated the First Amendment rights of at least Paul Dorr,” Bennett wrote in his ruling.

Excellent article.

It would be nice if they had said what information the guy was passing out that people thought he was a "kook"? Does the phrase "kook" sound familiar?

I'm curious as to...

exactly what this guy is involved in, like what kind of activist...what cause?

Does it matter


What to

say?? It's a step in the right direction, and I am pleased Judge Bennett cares about the First Amendment. Personally, I think all law enforcement should be required to take college-level Constitution classes, every so many years, and also be required to pass with a B or higher grade.
In a free society, imo, a PERMIT should not even be required to own a gun. Then there's the Second Amendment...
Thank you, OP, for sharing this article.

And you want cops taking college constitution classes? I see your point, but maybe they should have to watch Mike Badnarik's class instead.
