    Before I say anything further I have a driver license and I am polite and compliant to law enforcement. Who told you driving was a privilege? It was the first thing I learned in a drivers education class, that’s what the State says. The horse and buggy defense is entirely relevant. The weapons citizens can posses under the second amendment is based on what is usual and customary for the times, or we would all still be firing black powder single shots. So to this end it is relevant what the customary form of transportation is. I am free, therefore I am free to drive a vehicle anywhere I please without the consent of the State or Federal government. States have an obligation to protect the citizens and with that obligation the right to test a driver. Forcing you to produce a license for something you don’t need their permission to do is overstepping the authority they have. A one time permit is all you should have to do. It took me some time to accept this, we have been slaves for so long its difficult to conceive of true freedom and we won’t get our freedom back till we make the courts acknowledge it.

    I got this from the U.S. News & World Report / Education
    “The university is recognized for fostering intellectual creativity. At SOU, we don’t simply encourage students to be creative. We surround students with a culture based on creative expression and critical thinking. We expose them to different points of view. We challenge conventional thinking. And we provide an open, inclusive environment where students are free to speak their minds.”
    I may be wrong, but that statement isn’t exactly true if the campus has an area designated as a “Free Speech Zone”. It might be a good idea for the administration to review what exactly a public university is, and then read the constitution paying special attention to the “Bill of Rights”. I don’t mind these young impressionable kids being indoctrinated, as long as it is in the the concepts of inalienable rights, freedom, and the individual liberty enshrined in, and protected by, the United States Constitution. Everywhere is a “Free Speech Zone” in the United States of America, at least for now.

    I don’t think it is possible for a legitimate historian to be “very liberal”. RL TW made comments that I have to agree with, and thought the sentiment was well stated.

    I wonder how many have asked her if she ever has suicidal thoughts, and if she can drive a truck.

    SCOTUS has held that we, the people, have the right to travel about the country freely, this includes the use of a motor vehicle to do so, as it is considered a common form of transportation. It is a right in our country to travel unencumbered, thus the licensing of a right violates the principle of what a right is. If you do not conduct commerce for pay with your vehicle like a delivery driver, or cab driver, etc… the state (any state) has no authority to require a driver license, however they can test your ability to operate a motor vehicle in the interest of public safety. Every state will tell you driving is a privilege, and that a license is required, but this is not supported by the constitution under your rights as a free person. The government granting itself permission to conduct DUI check points is an egregious violation of our 4th and 5th amendment. Any judge who would rule in favor of such an act should be treated as compromised and found unfit to wear the robes of a justice. Those of you who think this is an OK practice, and being done to protect the public need to ask yourself this: Are you are willing to be stopped, frisked, and demanded to produce ID while walking down a sidewalk? Demanded to explain where you are going? It would be considered an investigatory detention, and presumes your presence on a public sidewalk is reason enough to stop you. New York city police have actually done this, so I’m not reaching to make a point. Do you value your freedom?

    Since when can you look up someone’s DL and get their home address

    I think you would be surprised at who has a gun on them. Little old ladies, suites, normal people you wouldn’t suspect.

    When will this issue be put to rest. The right expressed in the constitution is unqualified. We have the right to carry concealed or open without any license by an overreaching government, federal, state, or local. How is it exactly that a right can “licensed”

    CNN shows the benefits of common core. Apparently there’s a lot of Democrats in Scotland

    BTW, christianity is not the reason That I am able too speak my mind..that right comes from a secular society; not a theocratic one.
    It is not my goal to argue this with you in this forum but I thought you should be aware that the concept of individual liberty is uniquely christian and our constitution was based on those values. Equal justice is another christian concept we are all the same in the eyes of God therefore no man is to be treated differently than any other with respect to the law and those who have broken it. Not that we do a great job of executing these principles, but that too is part of human nature.

    If the kid loves his country and the second amendment his avatar is fine. At 11 years old I was an avid hunter with a .22 rifle and a 30-06 I was completely unsupervised and nobody worried I might hurt someone because they knew I was as competent with a firearm as any adult. No stigma whatsoever should be attached to this picture, that there is, is just an indication of the successful anti-gun campaign perpetrated by the left to indoctrinate our children, and the success of past indoctrination reveled in adults.

    You take to the internet to insult people you know nothing about on a subject you apparently know nothing about. Here is a free, brief lesson. It does not matter what “you” believe, Christians, Muslims, and Jews believe and that is what matters on this subject. The Palestinian’s are Muslim and they are taught from birth to hate Jews, and anyone who is not a Muslim, and will not convert is an Infidel. Both Jews and Infidels are to be hated and killed for Allah, so peace between Muslims and Jews is virtually impossible even though the Jews do not have a mandate to kill Muslims. The Palestinians could have peace today if they would stop trying to smuggle weapons into Gaza and shooting rockets into Jewish cities. The Jewish people would be happy to have peace they are not the hate filled zealots in this fight.

    No mention of how Hamas has indiscriminately sent rocket after rocket into Jewish cities absolutely unprovoked and without response. The Israeli government has a responsibility to protect it’s citizens. It is unfortunate the Palestinians have let Hamas put them in this situation, but I don’t believe for a second they are innocent. Their silence about the weapons being brought into their communities, and the location of the network of tunnels makes them complicit in the activities of Hamas and a party to the terrorism they represent.

    I wanted to ask, do you get paid to repeat and post this administrations propaganda? or are you just stupid? You obviously have internet access has it ever occurred to you that you can and should fact check any and all statements made by the president and his administration, because in reality stretching the truth does not make a bigger truth, and a lie couched in truth is still a lie.

    I once asked the same question of an officer who had pulled me over “Why did you pull me over everyone else was speeding too?” He asked “have ever been fishing?” to which I replied “yes” he then said “well there are thousands, maybe even millions, of fish in a lake I’ll bet you didn’t catch them all.”

    Exactly what is the legal justification for them to confiscate his rifle? and revoke his license? Under what authority does this state have the right to determine who can, and can’t, have a firearm without some form of hearing or court order to at least make a determination as to his mental competence. If he were going to shoot someone it should be the legislators trying to gut the 2nd Amendment at the state level.

    Going to the restroom has a cost associated with it. It doesn’t matter if it is not real money it is real enough to the students, and charging them to go to the bathroom that I have provided with real money is just the beginning of what kindles my fire against our public schools.

    These problems go back years, even decades, and our service members deserve better. Our representatives have a responsibility “of the people” to honor the contract to our veterans. Ours is a nation of laws to which I find congress in breach of the people’s contract with our veterans due to a lack of leadership and misappropriation of the people’s funds. Before we send another dollar in aid overseas, or subsidize any domestic activity, we need to spend whatever is needed to see that our veterans receive the best, most timely, care to be found anywhere in the world. To start this process congress and the president need to quit grandstanding for the cameras admit they knew far more about these problems than they have publicly disclosed and start cleaning the bureaucratic house starting with Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki.

    A license to conceal carry in Texas comes with a background and proficiency check it also says to law enforcement “I have guns” when it is time to confiscate guns in Texas come to my house first. I am licensed to carry and I don’t get the point of the open carry groups banding together to carry long guns, it is legal to open carry them I would support the right to open carry a sidearm if it means I don’t have to register myself as a gun owner with the state. Concealed carry is my preference but I consider my license to be about the same as gun registration.
