    The state and local stay at home orders, mask requirements and social distancing have been proven to reduce the spread of the corona virus and decreases new cases. That quite clearly meets the constitutional standards of meeting the common good and being tailored to that one objective of containing the spread of contagion. It in no way encroaches on the “right tp peacefully assemble tp petition for grievances, not does it have anything to do with the right to keep and bear arms, as long as those things are done by the rules of the requirements. As to affecting “individual rights”: as I have said elsewhere, your right to swing your fist ends at my nose. Your right to get infected by ignoring these directives is your right. But MY right to not be exposed to infection from you shall not be imposed upon. And if that means blocking droplet spread by social distancing, covering your nose and mouth, and staying away from other people, so be it. Your right to run around unchecked and unprotected stops right there. As would mine, where you are concerned, were the situation reversed. Attorney General Barr is proposing a solution to a non-existent problem. Surely he has some better things to do?
