I woke up to the continuation of this thread, and I gotta say, it was AWESOME!

My dad's rules were not laws. The police and courts were not going to enforce them.
Nope, it wasn't a democracy, and most households from a bygone era were "governed" by a little fear and allot of respect. There were repercussions for bad behavior, and generally that was an ass kick initiated by pops.

For Ghostman, since you apparently didn't watch the previous video I posted of 40 on the 2nd Amendment and firearms, watch and listen to this eloquent piece by Uncle Ted. Again, this pretty much sums it up.


This case currently in front of there USSC is going to speak volumes, particularly for the poor folks in NYC

The comparison is ridiculous. Rights are inalienable, not earned or legislated.
But they CAN be taken away, for a reason. Like if you deserve it.

Freedom, life, can both be taken away legally as punishment - after trial and conviction, a person can be imprisoned or executed, depending on the crime. Crazy people can be locked in the nuthouse if they are dangerous.

We have rights, but they are not absolute. They CAN be taken away.

Ironically enough, is not the entire point of the fourth amendment for an application (a warrant) to be filled out? In our future, I'm sure they'll make it so WE have to do it instead of them.
It's already shifting that direction, with the

"If you're innocent you have nothing to hide" crap.

What rights have been removed by amendment?
We've seen rights added over the last 150 years... right to vote for women, minorities, ERA, etc....
No rights have been removed.

And before you say it:
There never was an enumerated right to own slaves.
the right to buy a damn beer (Prohibition)
