Just more silliness. I think our government has already put limits on what the public can use for self defense, hunting, competition and recreation when it comes to weapons. If I was involved in any of the above, I would choose a state of the art firearm and not a spear.

Maybe in Baja, Mexico, a spear is the only legal choice.

I bought my first gun when camping with my dogs in the SW desert boondocks surrounded by coyotes ... the four-legged kind. I upgraded that purchase when I perceived more two-legged threats. Coup, schmoo; I have a right to protect myself.



I've never had a problem with fellow campers with guns. Dogs, onthe other hand.....................Grrrrrrr

well so you agree the second amendment does have limitations. So if looking at what the founders intended, they certainly did not envision virtually any weapon made in today's time.

again you are such a whimp to not be able to hunt with a bow and arrow... or flint gun. same with defending, it worked well for them and mankind for thousands of years.

Many countries are only allowed spears per se... and their death/murder rates are way lower than ours. BTW you may be just an idiot but yes in Mexico you can get permits to carry guns. I know two people that have them. My neighbor use to have bodyguards with short machine guns. And a friend who is just a private citizen. I have no idea what it takes to get the permit. Just shows how stupid gun owners really are about guns worldwide, even your neighbors. you second class silly idiot.

Hmm, a 7-1 decision blocking the Louisiana anti-abortion restrictions. I doubt that evangelicals and those in thrall to them will recognize the vast amount of tax money they have wasted trying to implement and defend restrictions that are clearly beyond the scope of Roe v. Wade.

Quote:
WASHINGTON ó The Supreme Court in a victory for abortion-rights advocates has blocked Louisiana from enforcing a law that they said would have left the state with only one doctor licensed to perform the procedure.

The justices, by a 7-1 vote, issued a brief order that restores an earlier judicial ban on enforcing the 2014 law.

The court's order is a good sign for abortion-rights groups in Louisiana and nationwide.

the state of Louisiana under right wing idiot Jindal is bankrupt so severely they are trying to figure out how to keep their hospitals open, and how to even have a state football team in the next year. Appears the universities may close for a quarter. Great job right wingers and Jindal. yep good thing you spent so much time and money on your illegal unconstitutional fight to the supreme court.

source msnbc maddow show special on how broke L is. New gov gave a primetime emergency speech. Gee where is that media putting that front page. when he Jin-stupid took office there was a surplus...

Quote:

What went wrong? In sum, Jindal made Louisiana the test site for an experiment in socially conservative, pro-corporate governance that wound up wrecking the state so badly it canít be ignored. After inheriting a $1 billion budget surplus, Jindal has taken Louisiana to a $1.6 billion deficit. The state is broke enough that conservative legislators are rebelling against his slavish adherence to the anti-tax pledge he made to Grover Norquist.

Here are a few other black marks on Jindalís uniquely disastrous record:

Corporate Welfare: Louisiana loses $300,000 every time the A&E show Duck Dynasty films an episode. The state once gave an oil refiner $10 million to create 43 jobs. All in all, Louisiana directs over $1.1 billion in taxpayer money to business incentivesómore than double the cost when Jindal took office. As the Advocate reported last year, these giveaways have deepened rather than alleviated the stateís economic woes.

The 6-2 ruling reinforces gay rights less than a year after the court legalized same-sex marriage across the country. The justices didnít hear arguments in the case, instead summarily reversing the Alabama Supreme Court.


Yet another slap at the lunatic chief justice in Alabama. It is time to remember Nina Simone:

Dow Chemical settles a lawsuit for $835 million, saying the conservative justiceís death hurt its chances of success at appeal

By JOSHUA JAMERSON and BRENT KENDALL
Updated Feb. 26, 2016 8:45 p.m. ET
The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has cast a cloud over the outcome of class-action lawsuits that target businesses, leading Dow Chemical Co. to pay $835 million to settle a case rather than risk an appeal without the conservative justice.

Dow Chemicalís decision is a signal of worry among businesses with cases before the hig

trump really wants to change the supreme court to be much more than activists, he wants them to be the executive branch too. Doesn't he know there are three branches of government?

Running for president is incredibly difficult, but like most tasks, itís one of those things that people get better at over time. Itís a cliche, but practice makes perfect Ė the more a candidate spends time on the trail, fielding questions, talking about their priorities, learning details about a broad range of issues, etc., the more they learn how to be good at the task at hand.

At least, thatís usually how it works.

Mother Jonesí Kevin Drum posed a question yesterday thatís quite relevant: ďI know that mocking Trump for his policy ignorance is sort of boring. I mean, what else is new? But is it possible that heís actually getting dumber over time?Ē

Kevin was making a point about something Trump said on Tuesday, but the Republicanís comments yesterday about the Supreme Court also bolster the thesis. Politico noted, for example, Trumpís plan for the next high-court justice.

ďWell, Iíd probably appoint people that would look very seriously at her email disaster because itís a criminal activity, and I would appoint people that would look very seriously at that to start off with,Ē Trump said in a phone interview with ABCís ďGood Morning America.Ē

Regardless of whether or not you consider Clintonís email server management important, Trumpís rhetoric was nonsense. Supreme Court justices are not responsible for evaluating controversies surrounding politicians. Itís just not in their job description Ė itís not how the court works. Trump seems to believe jurists on the nationís highest court play some kind of prosecutorial role, which is a failure of Civics 101.
