Call the ACLU defenders of The People!!! Oh wait never mind…
The Second Amendment provides: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
ACLU POSITION Given the reference to "a well regulated Militia" and "the security of a free State," the ACLU has long taken the position that the Second Amendment protects a collective right rather than an individual right. For seven decades, the Supreme Court's 1939 decision in United States v. Miller was widely understood to have endorsed that view. This position is currently under review and is being updated by the ACLU National Board in light of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in D.C. v. Heller in 2008. In striking down Washington D.C.'s handgun ban by a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court's decision in D.C. v. Heller held for the first time that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to keep and bear arms, whether or not associated with a state militia.
The ACLU disagrees with the Supreme Court's conclusion about the nature of the right protected by the Second Amendment. However, particular federal or state laws on licensing, registration, prohibition, or other regulation of the manufacture, shipment, sale, purchase or possession of guns may raise civil liberties questions.
The only way I can see this one getting granted is if they manage to pull it off without violating Amazon's patent, as I'm sure they have photographed something on seamless white (but maybe they were smart, and used seamless grey, or a green screen) with which they prepared their application...
How is it that while I defended Truth, Justice, and the American way of life, (freedom omitted on purpose) all while lowering personal standards and hooking up with the chubby chicks you still complain?
I tried to take'em all off the market for you, yet you are still not satisifed, Figures. ;-)
If .gov get the supremes to get the bar set rollerskate-limbo low what does this expose the satirist to? Especially those ones that are really bad at it? Like Deputy Dickwad. I hear he jsut threatened the Rams for their hands-up bit...
Not that simple. She was sitting next to me, for a 1hr long ferry ride, against the window, which was not an emergeny exit, at a booth with four other folks that were interested in what "The Senator" thought.
• I had clearly and openly called out the spineless bastids on the Senate Intelligence Committee (not that any weree in attendance)when the 19yr olde intern said...
19 yr olde self-important intern- "The senator is very upset that the CIA and the White House refuse to release the executive summary"
AricTheRed- "Bullshit! If "The Senator" had any interest in upholding her oath "to support and defend the constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic" she would read the whole fucking report during debate of some BS bill that they are going to ram through, like the farm bill, and make it a matter of record and tell everyone who thought that that was akin to providing "Material Support" to terrorists to go PATRIOT ACT themselves to death!"
19 yr olde self-important intern- "That is an interesting idea, I'll have to tell the senator."
Self-important-AricTheRed- "You should do that and then hold your breath until she does it."
I'd send 'em a letter and a copy of "How to Win Friends and Influence People". In the letter I'd point out there is nothing about bringing suit against folks that say things you don't like, however, at this point, I'd be afraid of getting sued!
The only way that I intended for it to answer to your comments is that I am now willing to vote the most hateful, disgusting, hate speech spewing, rights destroying, filthy politicians to office that would likely drive this country in to a theocratic oligarchy because I am not, female, LBGT, non-white, or particularly poor. I no longer care about anyone's rights but my own.
I'm voting a straight "Bitter Clinger" ticket, for better or worse.
Love Udall, can't vote for 'em Actually made a big mistake and voted for Barry "Oathbreaker" Obama the first time around, fixed that right up and voted for the Mormon and his magic underwear. Voted for Jerry Brown instead of Meg Whitman, that was wrong too.
I'm with the art guerrilla now, the best I think we can hope for is something so wholly disgusting that The People decide enough is enough.
If the FAA is willing to put in a 3k AGL flight restriction just to keep news choppers out of Ferguson then we've got problems.
Do I agree with Cliven Bundy? On some things, but not most.
No reporters got "Detained" no one was tear gassed, shot with rubber bullets, hit with sonic dispersal weapons, flash-banged with grenade launched stun grenades, and not a single one of the .gov storm troopers shouted at the assembled protesters "I'll shoot you in your 'effing face! Get back!"
Not a single protester was questioned, shot, detained or harmed in any way, yet.
