Mostly a Reminder for When I Get Home

The 9th Circuit insists that the right to possess arms says nothing about the right to buy or sell?   Planned Parenthood of Southeast v. Strange, 172 S.Supp.3d 1275, 1290 n. 5 (M.D. Ala. 2016) apparently points out that the right to an abortion is not very meaningful if there is no doctor able to provide one.

I am not keen on abortion (less so,  the older I get), but the analogy is strong.   If Susanville,  California,  refused to allow abortion clinics,  the 9th Circuit would unquestionably strike it down for violating the magic, invisible clause that guarantees a right to abortion.


  1. "No, that is specifically proscribed by Amendment Pi of the Constitution, in magic invisible ink that only special people can see."
