Bombshell Peggy Lee with the Dave Barbour Quartet performing 'Why Don't You Do Right?" She is all that. No, really. Very sexy, tough, smart, and that ….. sultry purr that inevitably became her trademark. My kind of broad. She survived a very difficult childhood, losing her mother by the age of four and being forced to endure both an alchoholic father and an abusive stepmother until she could escape at 17.
Recent tragedies should serve as a reminder to us all that there is no place where we are truly safe. Military installations, courthouses, schools, churches and just about every other place you can think of have been scenes of senseless violence. And to come home, lock the doors and think we are protected from all the bad things in the world is probably the most foolish idea of all.
On March 4, 2013, Governor Phil Bryant (R) signed Mississippi House Bill 2 into law. Among other things, this legislation clarified Mississippi law regarding the open carrying of firearms. Specifically, it limited the state’s prohibition on the unlicensed carrying of handguns and certain other weapons to situations in which the item is “concealed on or about one’s person ….” It also defined “concealed” to mean “hidden or obscured from common observation” and further explained that a “loaded or unloaded pistol carried upon the person in a … holster that is wholly or partially visible” does not fall within the prohibition on carrying concealed weapons. The bill contained additional amendments that clearly established that the open carrying of a holstered handgun is not, in itself, a violation of law.
In Mississippi, where gun rights have wide support, a legal debate is raging over gun legislation.Gov. Phil Bryant signed an amended law earlier this year stipulating that gun owners don’t need a special permit to carry a gun in a holster or carrying case, as long as it is at least partially visible. But a state judge blocked the law, which was supposed to go into effect in July, concluding that it is “unconstitutionally vague” and would allow gun owners “to openly carry weapons anywhere and everywhere.”
