  •  You've failed to address anything I've stated. (0+ / 0-)

    You decided to tell me what you read but never addressed what I pointed out.  That's called MISDIRECTION AND a RED HERRING.

    Answer the questions put to you.  Is it not confiscation when the item you've owned becomes inoperable through arbitrary restrictions? The 7 bullet magazine capacity IS confiscation.  Confiscation without compensation.

    Now since your red herring/misdirection does directly effect me, I will address it.

    If you are diagnosed with a mental illness you cannot exercise a right.  That isn't anything more or less than dictates. The NYS Legislature has made itself into the judge and jury and deemed sentencing.  That's "due process" today?

    If I wish to exercise said privilege, I must pay thousands of dollars to prove my "innocence", after conviction.

    That's the "adjudication" you defend here.

    Address these things.  Address the fact that it has already been decided that "poll taxes" are unconstitutional, how is this any different from a poll tax?  You can't vote unless you pay.  You can't bear arms unless you pay.

    Your false comparisons don't work.  "lots of things in life cost money.  That will sometimes put those things out of reach for many people".  

    IN THIS CASE, it's an unalienable right, not a privilege to drive an expensive car.  Clearly NYS does not believe the US Constitution applies here.  

    From Pg 778

        "A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; but no person religiously scrupulous shall be compelled to bear arms".

        This declaration of rights, I take it, is intended to secure the people against the mal-administration of the Government; if we could suppose that, in all cases, the rights of the people would be attended to, the occasion for guards of this kind would be removed.

    Now, I am apprehensive, sir, that this clause would give an opportunity to the people in power to destroy the constitution itself. They can declare who are those religiously scrupulous, and prevent them from bearing arms.

    NYS has just destroyed the constitution itself by declaring those "mentally" scrupulous, and prevent them from bearing arms.

    Take note I changed one word, "mentally" with "religiously".

    Will the next step be that you have a mental illness if you want to keep and bear arms? Wanting to keep and bear arms as prima facie evidence of a mental illness?  

    MANY HERE have said that already.  Many MSM pundits have said it as well.

    We're all "gun nuts" already, right?!

    It's a very dangerous game you're playing and supporting here.

    -7.62; -5.95 The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.~Tesla
