Wrong. Did you fail government class? Voting most certainly IS a right. Go back and read the Constitution.

From the article:
Marriage is ontologically between one man and one woman, ordered toward the union of the spouses, open to children and formative of family. Family is the first vital cell of society; the first church, first school, first hospital, first economy, first government and first mediating institution of our social order. The future of a free and healthy society passes through marriage and the family.”
How does allowing Gay and Lesbian couples the right to marry negate anything that is quote above? One is NOT eliminating the other, both are co-existing as we speak!!!
These folks are loonier than Bugs Bunny and the entire looney tune gang!!!
What if a man and woman marry and decide to not have
children, no family, no little kiddies going to grade school,
no cute little pictures of them around the house, to not be
grandparents etc., etc., etc?

Will the loony right burn them at the stake?

Ask them........there are many heterosexual married couples who have no children.......no one is nullifying their marriages or denying them the right to marriage!!!

The best weapon for home defense isn't an assault rifle, but an 18" barrel shotgun with a variety of rounds. Not Granny's single or double, but a Mossberg six or one of the new quickswap extended mags. Much better in closer quarters with less danger of overshot injuries.
I agree that the shotgun is very effective at close range but who wants rioters that close? They might screw up my flower garden. The assault rifle has a longer range, is more accurate, less kick, and a twenty to thirty round mag and if you are confronted by armed rioters that would place you at an advantage over the close quarter shotgun which is why your military usually carries said assault rifle.

Guns and Jesus...Typical..And what's your answer more guns? You only need to look to Italy and Egypt to see gun ownership run rampant. Hell, they barely even have any birds in the sky because they keep shooting them for sport. Either way, the current gun control laws or gun ownership ..it's not working. At least limit ownership to non-automatic weapons, there's no believable reason to own a machine gun no matter what excuse the NRA gives.
There are at least 250,000 fully automatic weapons legally owned by private citizens in the US and none have ever been used in a crime. Your argument is equivalent to trying to pass a law prohibiting crocodile hunting in Alaska.

No, you go back and read the Constitution. It's a states issue.

Or perhaps a couple of recent SC decisions you should research.

Alexander v Mineta (2000)

"...The Supreme Court does not protect the right of all citizens to vote, but rather the right of all qualified citizens."

Bush v Gore (2000)

"....the individual citizen has no Constitutional right to vote...(for Presidential electors)..."

Amendments 15, 19, 24 and 26 address the rights of certain groups, based on age, gender, poll taxes and race.

Otherwise, "qualified" citizens ability to vote is granted or withheld at the discretion of local and state goverments.

Voting does not enjoy full Constitutional protections, which is why qualifications vary from state to state. It's a state's issue.

NOPE. Two amendments that say it's a Federal Right make it a Federal Right.

And possibly even the 9th as well.

You States Rights Folks really don't understand you live in a Federal Republic!

Don't like it, ya shouldna joined.

Amendments 15, 19, 24 and 26 address ALL U.S. Citizens NOT just those named.

DOLT!

Read the amendments for crying out loud.

15: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States

19: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged

24: The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state

26: The right of citizens of the United States, who are 18 years of age or older, to vote, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state.

Shall we discuss the term, "A well regulated Militia"?

I'm not a states rights folk, whatever the hell that is.

And I know that voting, right or privilege?, is actually a convoluted issue, because the Constitution does guarantee several "rights" as far as voting is concerned.

But it is the states that decide what qualifications are necessary to vote, hence the recent photo ID controversies, and several states are discussing state amendments which would allow felons to vote.

There are also several groups currently trying to have the SC define voting as a right, which would automatically sweep away many state laws, like the photo ID requirement laws.

And it's a Constitutional Republic, BTW.

At such a moderate distance a shotgun is problematic to multiple targets in proximity. Not lethal, but it will definitely spoil their party.

Not quite up on the latest Rus Mil toys, eh?

Read the next part of most of those amendments:

Section 2.

"The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

That's not convoluted to me in any way.

FYI I disagree with barring people from voting for any reason. Felons are Citizens.

They did the crime and did the time. But they should NOT be STRIPPED of their rights as a citizen.

off topic but I was watching season 2 of the West Wing today. They did a great scene where they mention murder rates of the top Economic powers and us.

They have tougher gun laws and less murders.

And I've always reminded people it says, "A well regulated militia".

Not 3 guys in a pick up truck.
