Chokwe Surrenders on Open-Carry Fight

The Open-Carry fight is over.  The city of Jackson surrendered on the fight to ban the open-carry of firearms and entered into a consent decree in federal court. The order is posted below.
Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba banned the open-carry of firearms on April 24.  The Lumumba Administration liked the open-carry law to Jim Crow. 
State Representative Dana Criswell sued to overturn the gun ban in U.S. District Court.  Attorney General Lynn Fitch later joined in the fun as she filed an amicus curiae brief.

The key part of the four-page order is:

2. The City of Jackson, by and through its Mayor, its City Council, or its other officials, agents, employees, successors and all persons in active concert or participation with it
shall not adopt any orders, resolutions, ordinances, policies, or practices which have the purpose
or effect of directly or indirectly prohibiting, restricting, or inhibiting the open carry of firearms, unless a statute or law of the State of Mississippi is adopted or amended to specifically prohibit, restrict, or inhibit the open carry of firearms in Mississippi, or to specifically authorize municipalities to do so, and such statute or law is not held violative of the United States Constitution or the Mississippi Constitution by a court of competent jurisdiction.
 Judge Daniel P. Jordan, III presided over the case.

How could this be? I thought he surrounded himself with all types of attorneys that claim they are smarter than everyone else. I guess anyone can get a law degree these days.

Mayor Gumflapper got what he wanted from this fiasco - street cred with Bloomberg and the wannabe gun grabbers in his ultra liberal, "blame white people" social circle.

Soooo, can a faculty member carry onto school/college grounds? State law says yes, but "policies" have been posted saying no. Anyone want to annoy the idiot Attorney General? File suit against the IHL for violating state law. those policies didn't fly with the Courthouses....they shouldn't fly for the colleges/schools. 3....2....1.....any legal scumbags on here?

When I think of Choche I think of the Song “Everybody Plays the Fool” (Arron Neville).....

EXACTLY he could not win this fight and he knew it. He Was Posing for Bloomberg. But it got him some press and since he doesn't do anything else gave him something to keep him busy. I only rank him slightly ahead of his predecessor in worst Jackson Mayors since that guy cost us so much in settlements.

Now we have a federal consent decree that says we can partially conceal our weapons. Untuck your shirt and you are good to go.

Could this be the beginning of the turn?

9:17, beginning of a turn? The hand isn’t even close to the steering wheel...

Since the Mayor's spokeswoman stated to opposed the Mayor's goal is to support Jim Crow type law, does this mean Lumumba is now a convert Jim Crow mentality of Stokes, Stamps et al?

I yearn for a return to the days when every citizen was assumed to be armed. Now if only we can just convince the legislature to decriminalize dueling. That way when someone feels like their street cred or mother has been dishonored, they can issue the challenge to restore their honor. Afterward, the winner will not be called a murderer. Of course anyone can refuse the challenge and be branded a yellow bellied snake of a coward.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
