re: Using "watch lists" is not a reasonable standard to restrict access to guns - M. A. Ryland
You can't take away a fundamental right without conviction of crime! Should we take away free speech rights because the FBI is suspicious of someone? I actually take it farther... People in jail should not be allowed access to firearms. But if you are not in jail, there should be no bar to ow...

re: The history of the supreme court and 2nd amendment - M. A. Ryland
[quote]Until the 20th century, it was taken for granted that the 2nd Amendment was unincorporated - that is, it didn't restrict anyone other than the feds from abridging the right.[/quote] I think you might be confusing this with the 1st amendment. The text of the first explicitly says "Congr...

re: I Don't Understand Poor Republicans - M. A. Ryland
[quote]The GOP establishment has pulled off one of history's greatest cons by convincing these people to vote against their own economic interests time and time again.[/quote] So not only do you admit that you let your personal greed outweigh your sense of right and wrong when voting, but you the...

re: Is it acceptable to compare Trump to Reagan? - M. A. Ryland
Sorry no. Reagan was actually a real student of the American philosophy of government, and had been for a long time. Go watch Reagan's 1964 "A Time for Choosing" speech on youtube. Then you will know the silliness of the question....

re: Brian Williams: Why originalists are wrong - M. A. Ryland
[quote]The Constitution must be adapted to the 21st century. The America of 1789 would not recognize the country as it exists today. The Framers would have recognized, for example, health care as a God given right for all Americans, citizens or not, if medical technology had existed back then. Also,...

re: Loretta Lynch ‘most likely candidate’ to replace Scalia - M. A. Ryland
That would be the best thing possible for Republicans. If Obama nominates someone qualified but for their liberal politics, then the republicans will take a (hopefully small) political hit for dragging their feet or "Borking" them. If Obama nominates Lynch, then the republicans can drag their ...

re: Brian Williams: Why originalists are wrong - M. A. Ryland
Clearly this Brian Williams character is a bit of an idiot. The Constitution either means what it says or it doesn't. If it doesn't mean what it says, then it is a meaningless document. Those that promote the idea of a "Living Document" are enemies of America....
