This is an interesting constitutional question - how far does the fundamental right to privacy go, and will governments be able to prove that the mask mandates furthered a "compelling state interest in the least restrictive way"?
The judge said in the ruling: “The right to be let alone by government does exist in Florida, as part of a right of privacy that [Florida’s Supreme Court has declared to be fundamental. … [The Supreme Court] has construed this fundamental right to be so broad as to include the complete freedom of a person to control his own body,” the ruling added (pdf). “Under this construction, a person reasonably can expect not to be forced by the government to put something on his own face against his will.

For most people, thinking about death, taxes, disability, and incapacity is about as enjoyable as getting a colonoscopy.
Sometimes, working with lawyers isn’t much fun either. They might use legal words you don’t understand, or perhaps the meetings feel rushed and impersonal.

Your article on Marjory Stoneman School Safety Act at link below was Spot ON - it is super BAD LAW ! I can't understand why more conservatives don't seem concerned about the violations of their 2nd, 4th, 5th and 14th Amendment Rights codified by this BAD LAW especially the ex parte and Risk Protection Orders which are pure violations of DUE PROCESS ! Thank you for bringing this out as so many other 2A supporters do not seem concerned about these dangerous provisions in this BAD LAW. Thank you for writing this -
