The Freedom Law School was founded by one of California’s boldest defenders of liberty, Peymon Mottahedeh. This weekend, March 8-11, it’s holding a Freedom Rally at the Sheraton Ontario Airport, 429 North Vineyard Avenue, Ontario, CA 91764.

The keynote speaker is retired Judge Jim Gray, the 2012 vice-presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party.

Other speakers are Sheriff Richard Mack, who has been rallying sheriffs around the country to resist the imposition of unconstitutional federal edicts against our Second Amendment “right to keep and bear arms.”

And Adam Kokesh, a U.S. Marine veteran of the Iraq war and a 2010 candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives who was endorsed by Ron Paul, but lost.

I met Peymon about 15 years ago when I was writing editorials for the Orange County Register and he was promoting the Fully Informed Jury Association, which advances telling juries that they can try not only the person on trial, but the law itself.

This actually is a part of American law, but little-known. For example, suppose the government arrests and puts on trial for violating drug laws a grandmother suffering terminal cancer who puffs medical marijuana to keep her from starving to death. Even if the government fully proves its case, the jury can agree that the case was proved, but it also can find that the law was unconstitutional or absurd, and dismiss the case.

    More nullification nonsense.
