Six gun law returns to Jackson County

Who needs a judicial system when we have Jackson County DA Gerald Fox?

While others ponder the effect of the US Supreme Court's recent gun decision, Fox has declared there is

...in light of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling this week that the Second Amendment clearly applies to the states, he will no longer prosecute people for carrying concealed weapons, or certain other gun related offenses.

Nor will Fox prosecute the possession of switchblade and other types of easy-opening knives.
