Fuck The "DNC" 09.Jun.2016 18:42


Boycott the fucking vote.

Get strategic simple score voting.

Get rid of fascist "parties".

9th. circuit ruled the second amendment invalid 10.Jun.2016 09:48


We can all agree there is way too much gun violence in this country. For that matter, just too much violence in general.

However if the 9th. Circuit court of appeals can rule that "The Right to Keep and Bear Arms", doesn't mean you have a right to Keep and bear Arms, then anything is possible.

You don't have the right of Free speak, you can own slaves, if you are female, you have no right to vote, etc. These are all constitutional rights, and its only the second amendment that protects the rest of those rights.

eventually, they will get around to destroying a right you actually care about, but by then it will be too late because your 2nd. Amendment rights will have long since been nullified.

They didn't rule the 2nd Amendment was invalid. They ruled specifically against concealed carry of firearms being protected by the 2nd, which is entirely different. It has nothing to do with the ability of citizens to own firearms.
