re: A quick survey for Trump fans.... and a test of your respect for the rule of law. - SCLibertarian
[quote]let's suppose that Mueller reports to Congress that over the years Trump engaged massively in money laundering and tax fraud, particularly in regard to transactions with Russian ties. [/quote] I guess my answer would be "B", but that would be based on the fact that the Federal money launderi...

re: No Federal Appeals Court Has Held Assault-type Weapons are 2A Protected. - SCLibertarian
As someone who has some experience in constitutional appeals, at least in state court, the U.S. Supreme Court's holding in McDonald vs. City of Chicago is important because it deemed the right to bear arms to be incorporated against the states by the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment, thus ma...

re: LOL...Dawn Staley - SCLibertarian
It's a difficult suit to win, but to think it's about a jury verdict is probably shortsighted. I'm guessing Staley is filing suit to get an apology in exchange for dismissing the claim. ...

re: The Headquarters Of The Teens Working To Stop Mass Shootings - SCLibertarian
[quote]Also it is heartless given the gravity of what they are victims of.[/quote] This is such a disingenuous claim. When students begin foraying into the political world, they enter one of legalism, not moralism. Going through a traumatic experience does not ascribe your political position more w...

re: The Headquarters Of The Teens Working To Stop Mass Shootings - SCLibertarian
If these kids want to be activists, learn about your own government. Learn how to have a constructive debate. You don't get policy changes by screaming down your opponent. You don't get policy changes by executive order. None of these kids have any clue about selective incorporation or how to amend ...

re: The left has now moved Russian ties to the NRA - SCLibertarian
The Russian buzzword is a catch-all term of slander now and is used when liberals don't want to debate an issue. Seriously, unions have been funded and controlled by the Mafia for decades, yet I don't see any Democrats being attacked for accepting political donations from unions....

[quote]Why do you think the mentally ill should not have the right to defend themselves?[/quote] I have done many Social Security cases and Rex hasn't a clue.

re: Concerning guns and the mentally ill: a look into the recent political past - SCLibertarian
You are such a liar. The regulation at issue would have put the names of thousands of people in the background check database simply because they were receiving Social Security disability payments and received assistance in managing their finances. The ACLU even opposed the regulation on the grounds...

re: Everyone needs to relax about the 2nd Amendment... - SCLibertarian
McDonald vs. Chicago already settled this. Not only did the Court use selective incorporation, you had two justices I believe outright argue for overturning the Slaughter-House cases, which would essentially make the Privileges and Immunities Clause applicable to the states. If that's the case, I do...

re: Why are students in communities with frequent gun violence excluded from discussion? - SCLibertarian
Because intelligent and well-spoken African Americans from urban communities like Chicago, where the murder rate is higher than war zones, have the ability to dispel the myth that banning guns lessens crime, since cities like Chicago have had the toughest gun laws in America. Hasn't stopped the kill...
