I think you raise them, don't you? I think you, or maybe it was someone else, posted about raising goats several years ago.Goats are terrible mothers and get their heads stuck in the fence. Hair sheep are smarter and better mothers but let themselves get slaughtered by coyotes.
Those 2 cases overrode precedence regarding the individual right to own guns.1. Two recent Supreme Court decisions (District of Columbia vs. Heller and McDonald vs. City of Chicago) assert an individual's right to bear arms.
2. Read that article and others. I didn't see many violations of the 3rd amendment, and those that were clearly legitimate (quartering troops in the Aleutian islanders homes during WW2 and FDR's Japanese concentration camps for example), did not get prosecuted under the 3rd amendment and instead were given a one time cash payment as an apology.
3. Fair enough, I appreciate the rabbit hole this brought me through. To clarify though, in a Criminal case the jury cannot assume that pleading the 5th infers guilt. In a Civil case a jury can only infer guilt from pleading the 5th if the judge instructs them to. Even so, this is highly variable and not always the case.
In civil disputes — including bankruptcy litigation — it is not uncommon for questions to arise about a client’s potential exposure to criminal liability, whether the client is a party or a witness. Civil litigators must therefore understand the role of the Fifth Amendment privilege against...www.lanepowell.com
4. Opinions differ.
5. I don't think you posted the link you wanted to, but I read the Darby decision. It states that the 10th amendment wasn't violated by the FLSA because it related to interstate commerce, which is an enumerated power of the Federal government in the Constitution.
this is no push or call to action to limit gun deaths related to hardened criminals. hardened criminals are not the ones committing sensational mass shootings.
i believe most of the gun regulations being discussed are to limit mass murders of people and in places of vulnerability - schools, churches, stores.
look at the shootings that have sparked the greatest fear - Parkland, Newtown, Uvalde, Columbine. schoolchildren, killed by an "adult" less than 21 years of age with semi-automatic weapons.
there is a rarity and there is also fear mongering, but i would argue that this is valid because it is an issue that extends beyond the "usual" gun culture in America.It's nothing but fear mongering. Mass school/church/etc shootings are super rare. Which is why you can name all the schools that had mass shootings but not all the people who were shot last weekend in your big city.
We've all spent decades in schools, churches, grocery stores, concerts, etc with little risk of getting shot. I can't say the same if we decided to spend decades hanging out on random street corners of the average US big city. Or, you know, decline to write more opioids for chronic back pain patients like the Oklahoma orthopod.
BTW your chart shows murders by nonfirearm methods does exceed murders by firearms.
you clearly are new on this board or you have not read any of my posts regarding opioids.Or, you know, decline to write more opioids for chronic back pain patients like the Oklahoma orthopod.
now i know you are trolling.BTW your chart shows murders by nonfirearm methods does exceed murders by firearms.
A rifle, shotgun or handgun using gunpowder as a propellant. By federal definition, under the 1968 Gun Control Act, antiques are excepted. Under the National Firearms Act, the word designates machine guns, etc. Airguns are not firearms.
Those 2 cases overrode precedence regarding the individual right to own guns.
Scalia, the author of majority opinion on Heller noted that these rights are not unlimited and restrictions can be placed. Which is counter to NRA position and that of the Republican legislators they have bought out.
Don’t forget to reclassify suicides by gun separatelythere is a rarity and there is also fear mongering, but i would argue that this is valid because it is an issue that extends beyond the "usual" gun culture in America.
one - i may choose to hang out at random street corners and get shot. or i may not (unless i am growing up there, but that is a completely different discussion that does involve race). schoolkids arent given that choice. we view these places as safe areas, and they should be.
two -as an adult hanging out on one of these street corners, i may choose to arm myself. schoolkids cannot and should not.
three - weapons used on street corners are primarily handguns, not assault rifles that are more powerful and potentially faster in firing.
adults shooting themselves up is a separate level than a crazed young male carrying ARs and shooting up a school.
should there be controls on handguns? yes, but again, a separate topic.
you clearly are new on this board or you have not read any of my posts regarding opioids.
i have stated multiple times that we should not start opioids for chronic noncancer pain.
now i know you are trolling.
go ahead, add up all the murders that include guns (ie handguns, rifles, shotguns and other guns) in one group and the other causes in another and report back the numbers.
oh i can see the post now: "oh but a handgun is not a firearm! See?! Gotcha!"
yet Alito specifically states that gun restrictions may be put in place for public safety.Ducttape,
You pushing for public safety is admirable,
but remember when I stated that your proposed solutions were unconstitutional?
The Supreme Court on Thursday declared for the first time that the U.S. Constitution protects an individual's right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense, handing a landmark victory to gun rights advocates in a nation deeply divided over how to address firearms violence.www.reuters.com
That is all we decide.... Our holding decides nothing about who may lawfully possess a firearm or the requirements that must be met to buy a gun.
although they both make a point that any such delays may not be unreasonable (such as exhorbitant fees or long wait times).Kavanaugh said those states could continue to restrict licenses only if the licensing regimes are centered on similar requirements found in the other 43 states.
