What a strange little thought that man has.

Restricting the mere exercise of a right.

What happened to restricting harmful behavior, while exercising a right.

For example, I cannot yell fire in a crowded theater, unless it actually is on fire.

I cannot shoot my gun while in a crowded theater, unless I am shooting at the guy starting the fire.

I can carry a piece of paper with the word fire on it all day.
That is merely exercising a right.

Yet I can get busted for merely wearing a gun in that crowded theater, which is also merely exercising a right.

For some reason, the Gov assumes I WILL misbehave if I exercise a right.

And the people allow the Gov to pass laws restricting that mere exercise.

What is wrong with you people.

I think it has to do with insecure people not trusting themselves and to alleviate that condition and make themselves feel better about their own inadequacies they want to restrict everyone.

A confident person does not worry about things but moves forward.

This writer can't even keep the court cases straight or cite one properly. Why should we think he can even address what a Suprem Court Justice "MIGHT" think...?

He's full of crap.
