Supreme Court of Hawaii Rejects Authority of the U.S. Supreme Court
The case Hawaii v. Wilson deals with a man who was charged with a crime for carrying his firearm in public without a permit. A lower court sided with Wilson, citing the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2022 decision in Bruen, which upheld a right to carry firearms publicly.
The state’s Supreme Court asserted, “States retain the authority to require that individuals have a license before carrying firearms in public.” The opinion, authored by Judge Todd Eddins, grabbed attention for its strangely casual suggestion that the culture of the Founding Fathers is OBSOLETE. “The thing about the old days, they the old days,” the unanimous ruling said, quoting the HBO series The Wire.
“As the world turns, it makes no sense for contemporary society to pledge allegiance to the founding era’s culture, realities, laws, and understanding of the Constitution.”
So, the past is obsolete, the Constitution is obsolete, a man’s rights are obsolete, and proper English in an official document is obsolete. Who cares about a one-party state, 2,471 nautical miles from another one-party state?
OBSOLETE (adjective) - cause, product, or idea to be replaced with something new. I recommend he watch the 1960s Twilight Zone episode of the same, and that is the real reason I made the entry.
Hibiscus is native to Mauritius, Madagascar, Fiji, and Hawaii.
Are you glad you have spindly limbs making it difficult to burn the pages of the Constitution? I think that flower is obsolete.
