In other words, when you get arrested, natural rights with no legal defense gets you nowhere. If the law says you can't manufacture or buy or sell an AR-15, you are out of luck.

Natural right only help if the judge is Mother Nature.

Even if this was error, which I doubt, you obviously never heard of the harmlessness doctrine applicable in these cases. So you're really just trying to pull the wool over people's eyes.

If you are ready to get Ryan, McConnell, Trump and Pence out of the way of our progress, if you are ready for victory in November 2018, RETWEET this -- and make sure you're registered to vote!

Right. The Supreme Court explicitly said in Heller that just because the government had M-16's didn't mean you could have one too. Look at sec. III of the CONSERVATIVE majority opinion.

The Dixiecrats' children and grandchildren remained racists and became Republicans. Southern Republicans and Blacks became Democrats, and the Republicans have been suppressing their rights to vote ever since. But that's irrelevant to this post.

Yes and now the Republicans on the Supreme Court took it away. That was then (when Republicans were decent); this is now when they are suppressing the votes of black people. Why do you even trot this tired and pointless "argument" out. GOP has given up its decent past.

So? All the more reason you folks should have taken up arms to stop it. The point is, this alleged historical argument for carrying weapons to prevent people being thrown off their land and herded into camps or reservations is sheer nonsense. It's often happened, guns or no.

Once again, you're changing your story. No reliable evidence of scripting. Period. And you haven't bothered to show any. Typical evidence-free conspiracy theories of the right. People are catching on to you.

Why is the evidence of the scipt doctored emails? Because the right has no shame.

I don't like CNN for my own reasons, but this is nuts. Clearly a made up claim, bolstered by doctored documents. Take this tweet down; it's totally fake.

Great point. Also glad to hear the President's recognition that teachers are not paid enough and, implicitly, that education is underfunded.

We just want what Heller said. Which, is absolutely clear. It adopted the Miller view that 2nd Amend protected only weapons "in common use AT THE TIME" (emphasis added) of the adoption of the Amendment. Which means AR-15's are not protected and can be banned.

That is incomprehensible. Military or not, they weren't in common use in 1791. Period. Also, this:

No. Because nobody had those for use in personal defense in 1791. My god, when my g-grandpa volunteered to crush the South in the Civil War, even soldiers only had flintlocks (he complained). Nobody had those exotic guns 70 yrs later. Not "in common use" by a long shot.

I just chased Christian Hartsock, an operative for James O’Keefe/Project Veritas, off the San Diego convention center property. Pic of him tonight attached. He is likely not alone. Please spread the word to be on alert for suspicious individuals!
