Senator Melanie Sojourner had the following comment about Hinds County Judge Winston Kidd’s ruling over Mississippi’s gun law, HB 2.
“It is a sad day when a seated judge uses his bench to inflict upon the people his own personal agenda versus the very clearly defined Constitution in which he is sworn to uphold.
How a circuit court judge can trample on our states Constitution as well as the legislative branch is alarming.
Someone needs to point out to Judge Kidd that in Mississippi we not only support our Constitution, but we are also ardent supporters of our Second Amendment rights. Furthermore, most of us clearly understand the separation of powers our forefathers provided to us, something you would think a judge would have no problem understanding.”
