Wow, CNS, another jerk-off rag for right-wing 'patriots',  AKA cranky fat oldsters chest-pounding about:

[] Gubmint by 'we the people' (meaning every member of the Low T shuffle board team, but no niggrahs).
[] Militia revolution (a distinct and obese minority of deer spotlighters thinking they can take over a single county, much less the country).
[] The Constitution (while ignoring actual sentence structure in the original Bill of Rights...along with the other 17 amendments). And being blithely ignorant of several centuries of Supreme Court interpretations on various statues, because Waaaaaah! Judicial Activists!

Bonus hilarity: All the indignant Pillsbury-dough-boy tough guys slobbering wall to wall on CNS's comment boards.

Sweet, so cops only have to enforce laws they agree with, and still get to keep their jobs?  I'm gonna become a cop and just become a conscientious objector, just chill out and eat.  Badass.

FTFA: Cooke says of the new laws: "They're feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable."

Of course they're unenforcable, because the guy in charge of enforcing them just explained that he refused to do so.

Verzio: Satanic_Hamster: Verzio: The job (like every other government office in the US) includes an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. That inherently requires the sheriff to judge what acts on his part uphold it and what acts do not. Refusing to take actions to enforce what he believes to be an unconstitutional law is, in fact, part of his job.

No, it's not.  There's a legal course of action if you think something isn't legal or Constitutional.  Random hicks declaring it unconstitutional isn't one of them.

Go ahead, show me where in the US Constitution that lays out this "legal course of action", and says individual officials must defer their own judgments to it.  Article and section, please.

The fact that the courts have the implicit power to review the constitutionality of laws does not, in any way, actually relieve persons who have taken an oath to uphold the Constitution from their oath to uphold the Constitution.  By the fact that it's an obligation on the individual, the individual must make a judgment.  If the judgment that individual makes is to assume constitutionality until a court rules, that is still a decision he made.  Making the judgment is inescapable.

Biological Ali: The famous "Fire in a crowded theater" phrase was actually coined in a case that related to a man distributing leaflets (which I'm sure you'll agree are similar enough to books as far as "speech" is concerned. The case didn't turn out very well for the guy arguing "free speech"

Yeah, because Oliver Wendel Holmes, Jr., was a fascist asshole who used the Constitution for toilet paper.  And that a later Supreme Court held that it was okay to round up Japanese-Americans who had committed no crimes and detain them in concentration camps didn't make that actually constitutional either.


Fine; when I become sheriff of your county I'm going to declare that I consider any anti-rape laws to be unconstitutional and I will no longer be enforcing them because that's what I think the Founding Fathers intended.  I mean, they didn't even MENTION rape in the Constitutional, so how could it be legal or Constitutional to ban it?  And I know this is right, because I have a GED in Constitutional Law.

WippitGuud: GUTSU: WippitGuud: redmid17: WippitGuud: GUTSU: WippitGuud: Doesn't the Privelege and Immunities Clause guarantee Freedom of Movement? Wouldn't that make it a right?

You don't need a car to exercise your Freedom of Movement. It's perfectly legal to walk across the country, and you don't need a license to own a horse.

Full circle: You don't need a 30 round clip exercise your right to bear arms.

Rights are not about needs. They never have been.

If the government enacts a ban against the manufacture or import of (in this case) a 30 round magazine, how does that infringe upon your rights?

How is not being allowed to use vowels infringe on your right to free speech? Who needs more than 21 letters anyway?

How does one speak without vowels?


Ask the Welsh. They did it for awhile.

tylerdurden217: jso2897: At this point, I think that they should pass a whole bunch of absurd gun laws, just to troll these assholes and make the lose their minds. This country is sick anyway - time to give it an enema.

Yes, I think this is a good idea. If you buy a gun and at any point after you bring it home, pose in front of the mirror with it, you should have your gun confiscated and your name put on a list of people that buy guns for the wrong reasons. Forever prohibited from owning a gun.

Talk about hard to enforce. I wish there was some way.


I propose that people should be allowed to purchase and carry any kind of gun they want, but that it should be illegal to manufacture or sell any gun that is not either pink or baby-blue, and cartoon themed in design.
Also, any gas-actuated semi-automatic weapons must be configured so as to make loud fart noises when they are fired. Also, violent felons are to be REQUIRED to own guns as a condition of their parole.
Give me time - I'll think of more.

manimal2878: Infernalist: They'll talk a big game until a team from the FBI shows up and sits them down to take depositions on whether or not they'll enforce signed state law.

Then they'll meekly agree to enforce the laws, understanding that the FBI will be testing them on the issue rather quietly.

I think it is a bunch of empty talk, like you say.  In fact, has anyone ever been arrested solely for having a magazine that held too many bullets?  It's not something that would ever even come up.  If you committed another crime and they confiscated your gun as evidence only then would they cause to ever asses the magazine capacity.


I have had a DNR officer ask to see my firearm, while I was hunting, to confirm I had a plug in to limit the rounds in my shotgun as long as he was bugging me for my license and other shiat.
Was it annoying?  Yes.  Did he have the right to do so?  Yes.  Did I have my plug in?  Yes.  Why?  Because I don't need 50 rounds to hit something like pussies like Ted Nugent and the limitation is reasonable.

Thank goodness. I was all set to make my generous gift of $500.00, but then I was wondering if perhaps they were government-funded.

Still, I worry about the Liberal Media that doesn't report on THE TRUTH. Is CNSNews.com part of the Liberal Media that distorts and ignores THE TRUTH? I wish there were some way of knowing.

People are really complaining about paying for Background checks?  I've had to pay for mine since the 90s.  The magazine size ban is pretty much useless without a corresponding Federal Law, even when there was a federal law limiting magazine size it was easy to get Hi-Cap mags they were just much more expensive.
