re: People Have A 'Fundamental Right' To Own Assault Weapons, Court Rules - Taxing Authority
[quote]Ok, so should there be no such thing as a no fly list in your opinion?[/quote]The stab about the "the poor" was (mostly) a joke. A "no fly" list used for not allowing people to fly isn't the same as using a list to deny enumerated rights. Flying in an aircraft isn't a Constitutional right,...

re: People Have A 'Fundamental Right' To Own Assault Weapons, Court Rules - Taxing Authority
[quote]All of that being said, if the process was fixed and someone was still on the no fly list, would you support them being able to buy assault weapons[/quote]No. I believe due process is important. Besides, how will "the poor" get off the list? They can't afford the lawyer to go to court. ...

re: People Have A 'Fundamental Right' To Own Assault Weapons, Court Rules - Taxing Authority
[quote]It's illegal to posses a sawed off shotgun that has a barrel length of less than eighteen inches, unless you've obtained a taxed permit from the ATF - permit requires a [b]background check and payment of an excise tax[/b] for that weapon.[/quote]And thus, is a law unfairly targeting "the poor...

re: Voter ID question - Taxing Authority
[quote]The results showed that lawmakers who had supported voter ID requirements were much more likely to respond to Jacob Smith than to Santiago Rodriguez, thereby revealing a preference for responding to constituents with Anglophone names over constituents with Hispanic ones. They also showed legi...

re: Voter ID question - Taxing Authority
[quote]Okay, which of those specifically are targeted to suppress the rights of minorities? [/quote]Today? None. And you've demonstarted NO evidence except to claim "disproportionate" effects. But you don't consider that adequate evidence in other cases. In reality, it seems you care more about ...
