    According to a Wayne County spokeswoman and the rules, employees aren't allowed to possess a weapon on work property.
    Chevilott says he didn't bring a weapon to work. He found it on the job.
    "There is no policy. I've never seen a policy what to do if we find a gun out here. So, all I did was secure the situation to make sure nobody else got hurt or killed."

    "No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.

But just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can’t constrain the exercise of that right, in the same way that we have a right to private property but local governments can establish zoning ordinances that determine how you can use it."
    Well, the little part about "shall not be infringed" just keeps getting in the way...lol
