What zoom needs to offer is the ability to substitute your own filter for the face of the remote party. Kind of like when the lawyer accidentally had a kitten representing him on-screen, but this would be imposed by the viewer. Then we would have, say, a Boebert muppet in front of her fetish objects.

Right to Bear Arms?

Sure. Congressional hearing rooms, NFL huddles, commercial aircraft, FEDERAL PRISONS!

What part of “shall not be infringed” don’t you understand?

We settled this insanity a loooooooooooooong time ago.

The Heller case is an abomination–basically scratching out the “well-regulated militia” part, and it applies only to people’s homes.

She’s the one with the husband that shows off his magic whanger. Evidently, he’s not big on concealed carry.

“Boebert was among the Republicans who was accused by some House Democrats of giving tours days before the pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol last month.”

Has anyone read or heard whether there is a serious investigation into this?

She’s a gun nut, not a gun enthusiast and it should be made clear that the reason they don’t want her and a gun in the same room in the Capitol is they don’t want her to shoot someone. As the GOP’ers say “guns don’t kill people people do” and she’s just the people to do that. “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” ( which means a gunfight is the ONLY option in that thinking ) but better…no one has a gun and they can all get to work. A chef doesn’t bring a chainsaw to work.

I’m sure she “knows” they weren’t loaded. So it was perfectly “safe.”

“Why does anyone think that they can cherry pick the Second Amendment and say this this is the one enumerated right that we can take away from people?” Boebert said.“
She ought to read up on some history of how firearms have been regulated in this country for a couple of centuries. In the old west aka the Wild, Wild West the local sheriff would bar individuals who were mentally impaired or had a criminal history from possessing firearms. There was also the “check your gun at the door” rules at hotels and bars.

Meeeeeow!!

No, no, no, no you’re confusing the Right to Arm Bears with the Right to Bear Arms. It was more about expanding the militia to the local fauna in colonial days.

Is constitutional law part of the GED core curriculum?
