Video: Mississippi Supreme Court Takes Aim on Gun Ruling

The Mississippi Supreme Court is looking into a 2011 judge’s order restricting guns from courtrooms in the 14th Chancery District.

Lowndes , Chickasaw, Clay, Noxubee, Oktibbeha and Webster Counties are all covered under Chancery Judge Dorothy Colom’s judicial order banning firearms from the courthouses even if with a concealed carry permit.

That order has since been modified to specify which areas are off limits..

Gun Rights advocate Rick Ward sued Colom saying that ruling violates his rights.
