Just WHERE does the document you allege gthey are protecting and defending name them as the arbiters of just WHAT is Constitutional?

Shall not be infringed upon, is very powerful language.
Remember, freedom is not free, even here on our soil.

Restrict my freedom and then tell me you will harm me for refusing your control and see what happens.

Once again: Just WHERE does the document you allege gthey are protecting and defending name them as the arbiters of just WHAT is Constitutional?

Just in case you're remarkably ignorant of the FACT, the Constitution provides for the determination of just WHAT is Constitutional.

HINT: It DOES NOT mention the Utah Sherrif's Association .

We also have Police Power in this country where the authorities can take away your rights in the case of emergency for the protection of the public.

Police power - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It's right between the separation of church and state clause and the right of same sex marriage.

America is becoming more ignorant by the minute.
Circumvent the constitution? First off what is being suggested that circumvents the constititution? Nothing. Ok based on the proposals they want to re apply a ban that existed as the law for 12years so that doesn't violate the constitution.

You are the ignorant one.

These gun nuts are insane and violent and would be traitors.

In other words, your alleged belief in the Constitution begins and ends with only the parts you agree with, which is to say you don't believe in it at all, eh?

Besides, if you actually believed in "bear arms" and "not be infringed", you and the NRA would be out there fighting for the right of citizens to own missiles, bazookas, RPGs, et al.

I find it amusing that we have at least one guy that argues in other threads about how LEOs should be able to have "assault weapons" but not citizens, etc., putting LEOs on a pedestal, but in this thread, those same LEOs are crazy gun nuts that should be ignored or called traitors.

So freaking hypocritical.

Guys, pick a position and stick with it. Be honest about your intentions, and stand by your position. Quit being so damn wishy-washy.

How about telling the truth instead and saying they're a bunch of self-Righteous bozos who claim to protect and defend a document they are perfectly willing to crap on?
