If you’re legal to own one, should be legal to carry one, any damned way you see fit. “Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Yeah, there’s some unintended irony in this idea that a black Pres. might be “transparent.”

Gun Owners = Freed Slaves
“Gun Control” [sic] = Segregation in the Deep South
SCOTUS ruled in Brown v. Board of Education that “separate but equal” is not Constitutional. So why does the govt. think that “Shall not be infringed” means it’s OK to infringe if you pass a law that infringes?

Bite me, Joe. I’m disinclined to waste my energy on logic with you.

OMG! Burned out light! 9 rounds! Suspended license! This guy is a scoff-law and needs to be arrested. A search of his vehicle would probably turn up a used 44 oz. Big Gulp cup too!
What part of “shall not be infringed” doesn’t apply to New York?
Also, since we’re at it, unless the gun was “in plain sight” — and since the guy has a CCW, a count of the rounds in the magazine might constitute an “illegal search.” Courts have said the police don’t get to snoop around inside your vehicle during a traffic stop. No flashlight beam into the vehicle, no lighting up the back seat area . . .
It was reported the gun was sitting on the passenger seat in plain sight. It is also legal for them to search the car once your placed under arrest. The issue isn't the legality, it discretion on the cops part. He didn't need to charge him.

Ad hoc ergo propter hoc — your logic circles the wagons around a theological dung heap. Constitution doesn’t say “Freedom of religion.” The Constitution says, “Congress shalll make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
Ten Commandments are religious, Judeo/Christian. Posting them in a govt. owned public school is an “establishment” of religion. Posting them additionally constitutes a defacto prohibition of the free exercise of any other faith, creed, religion. (Jefferson talks about “freedom to” and “freedom from.”) Free exercise in this instance would be “freedom from” any other religious articles — specifically the posting of the Ten Commandments.
SCOTUS has ruled on this, repeatedly. And so you’re pretty much just whipping an equis mort.

Here’s the analogy —
Gun owners = Southern blacks during segregation.
Gun control = Segregation in the Deep South
Assault weapons ban = black/white waiting rooms, drinking fountains, etc.
14th Amendment says “equality under the law.”
2nd Amendment says, “shall not be infringed.”
It’s a civil rights issue.

Why can’t this site seem to post the avatar I’ve selected in my profile?
Agree. The dumbing of America. Proof ? The re- election of Barack Obama . The fact that these gossip low information types are wrapped up in a sleazy tabloid trial while their government destroys America and lets fellow Americans die unprotected. Idiots.
Arias is whacko, Travis was just a guy who was using her for sex and not interested in committing to a relationship. If that becomes justification for murder a lot of playas are in trouble!

What part of stupid . . . Ohhhhhhh hell, why should I be surprised?

We don’t get holdups here in the first place, never — Why is that? Because everyone understands that everyone in this area is armed and ready to shoot to kill. Then we call 911 and have them dispatch a coroner.

If the veteran burial benefit were transferable, veterans should be able to sell their space in the National Cemeteries — but it’s not and they’re not.

The kid has the right to “keep and bear” — SCOTUS has said emphatically that “Constitutional civil liberties don’t stop at the school house door.”
