Default Re: Democrats Promise Most Aggressive Gun Control Measure In Decades

"The very purpose of the Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote they depend on the outcome of no elections."

I say let the Democrat ignoramuses work themselves into a frenzy writing Bills that will never become law. They have legislative blue-balls, you are correct on that, and they are compelled to act -- not so much in the public interest but to poke a stick in the eye of US gun owners and especially, the NRA.

The Democrats have nothing but spite and hate motivating them.
I wish you would quit broad brushing people. Though there's no party for me right now I don't put down ALL Republicans or even say ALL trump voters are ignoramuses. I think some of them are following a cult and others don't pay attention except to the big lead headlines.

Free speech is regulated. Assembly and practice of your religion are regulated. None of these is open completely no-matter-what to an individual's interpretation.
The second amendment likewise.
