The list

Just a quick follow-up on last week's decision by a bunch of silly people to award the Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore for talking a good game (but having a bigger carbon footprint then some small towns) on global warming, but not actually doing anything. The Wall Street Journal published a modest list of people much more worthy of the honor.

In Olso Friday, the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize was not awarded to the Burmese monks whose defiance against, and brutalization at the hands of, the country's military junta in recent weeks captured the attention of the Free World.

The prize was also not awarded to Morgan Tsvangirai, Arthur Mutambara and other Zimbabwe opposition leaders who were arrested and in some cases beaten by police earlier this year while protesting peacefully against dictator Robert Mugabe.

Or to Father Nguyen Van Ly, a Catholic priest in Vietnam arrested this year and sentenced to eight years in prison for helping the pro-democracy group Block 8406.

Or to Wajeha al-Huwaider and Fawzia al-Uyyouni, co-founders of the League of Demanders of Women's Right to Drive Cars in Saudi Arabia, who are waging a modest struggle with grand ambitions to secure basic rights for women in that Muslim country.

Or to Colombian President Àlvaro Uribe, who has fought tirelessly to end the violence wrought by left-wing terrorists and drug lords in his country.

Or to Garry Kasparov and the several hundred Russians who were arrested in April, and are continually harassed, for resisting President Vladimir Putin's slide toward authoritarian rule.

Or to the people of Iraq, who bravely work to rebuild and reunite their country amid constant threats to themselves and their families from terrorists who deliberately target civilians.

There's a few more. Check them all out.

To be clear, it's still a 1A violation even as they supposedly intended it. But their rush to pass it made it encompass all sorts of stuff.

The judge should not take them at their word that they will "fix" it. The judge should issue the preliminary injunction we requested.

16-year-old Lola Fitzgerald has been racking up skeet shooting championships in and out of her home state. Now a new California law has shut her out of the sport and is threatening her Olympic hopes. https://thereload.com/the-california-gun-law-dashing-young-female-champions-olympic-dream/

In a just world, SB 918 and its New York counterpart would make the Supreme Court* say: "well, we tried to let you keep shall issue, but you morons just couldn't help yourselves, so now constitutional carry is the law of the land".

*Hopefully it doesn't need to go to SCOTUS.
