Please, will someone explain to me why the 2nd Amendment is not completely redundant and archaic in the context of the framer's original intent. The amendment is not vague at least in the sense that it was meant to ensure the protection of freedom through a well regulated militia. At that time, members of a militia provided their own weapons, thus the only individual right argument I ever heard that made sense. But what well regulated militia today requires its members to bring their own weapons. If I join the Tennessee National Guard today will I have to go shopping at Bubba's Guns to Go tomorrow?
The very reliable PPP poll is reporting some Horrible news for the G.O.P. : The public agrees with us Democrats, and it's going to cost the G.O.P. dearly, if they don't co-operate with POTUS over SCOTUS ! (G.O.P. senators Ayotte and Johnson, who are running for re-election this year are two examples.)
I started a petition on whitehouse.gov to have the supreme court determine if Ted Cruz can run for president of the United States of America. Ted Cruz was born in Canada, not in the United States. His only defense is that his mother, a natural born citizen, was American making him a natural born citizen. According to Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 says that only natural born citizens may run for the presidency, that does not include Ted Cruz. The supreme court must interpret this section of the constitution to determine if he is eligible to run for president. I have included the link because it needs 150 signatures before the whole nation can sign it, I would appreciate that if you agree with me that Ted Cruz should not be able to run for president or you just don't agree with his policies make a change in the world by signing this petition. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov//petition/have-supreme-court-determine-if-ted-cruz-can-run-president-united-states-america
I read a post at another forum recently that said on page 14 of the DOMA Opinion in June, they only recognized 12 instead of 13 states as having gay marriage! Does this mean that in california that gay marriage is still illegal?
