Holy slept through Civics in High School!
No wonder my thought process is so screwed up. I have been looking at the whole gubmint process wrong for all these years. Maybe I need to reread the constitution to see what it really says.
So, if the SCOTUS is not a branch, should we go out on a limb and declare it a root?
Once again Schumer doesn't need any help proving his stupidity! How does this clown keep getting elected?
Lower the crime rate by lowering the criminal survival rate!
When people say 'God Bless America' I'm sure He says, "I gave you Texas!"
3 Branches of Govt is Legisative (include senator and congress) Judicial ( supreme court) Executive (president).
the 3 branches of government?: Injustice, Ignorance, and Incompetence.
The ROOTS of those 3 branches are comprised of " WE THE PEOPLE......" who ORDAINED and ESTABLISHED those three branches of government.
The necessary right of citizenship enumerated, and SHIELDED against government infringement in Amendment Two to the U.S. Constitution - seems to have escaped Scheister Schumer's notice. On the other hand - he seems to be obsessed with consigning the 2A to the recycle bin.
I am being nagged by the thought that the season has arrived to clarify with a constitutional amendment that the 2A means precisely what it says.
That clarity being:
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be
infringed." [AMENDED TO FURTHER ADD] :
"This right of the people to keep and bear arms encompasses any personal service
implement of arms that may be individually carried. This right exists within the jurisdictions of all
the several states, the federal district of Columbia known as Washington, and all territories
subject to unrestricted public travel, access, and commerce within the jurisdiction of these United States.
The free exercise of this right is subject only to reasonable restriction in
certain specific sensitive locations, where a substantial, and compelling government
public safety interest can be demonstrated. Upon completion of any sentence resulting
from conviction for a crime involving burglary, arson, violence, or threat of violence or institutionalization for mental health reasons
resulting in an act of violence this right shall be restored without any further requirement for affirmative action by the individual, or
any agency of government following a period of ten years during which a citizen's predilection towards
good behavior has been demonstrated by the aquisition of no additional violent criminal conviction, or further
institutionalization due to violent mental health instability. Upon completion of sentence resulting from conviction for a crime not
involving, burglary, arson, violence, or threat of violence or institutionalization for mental health reasons not presenting a threat of
violent behavior this right shall be fully restored immediately without any requirement for affirmative action by the
individual or any agency of government.
I recognize the inherent risk involved in opening the 2A up for political tampering, however given the current state of affairs in which the judicial branch presumes authority to amend the constitution - clarification of "shall not be infringed" would appear to be in order.

Or we could just say that "Shall not be infringed" means "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED".
A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.- Thomas Jefferson March 4 1801
I thought the three branches were Curly, Moe & Larry.
No right is held more sacred, or is more carefully guarded, by the common law than the right of every individual to the possession and control of his own person, free from all restraint or interference of others, unless by clear and unquestionable authority of law. Union Pacific Rail Co. vs Botsford as quoted in Terry v Ohio.
Talk to your cats about catnip - before it's too late.
This issue has to be ISOLATED from the REACH of ANY BRANCH OR JURISDICTION OF GOVERNMENT.
We should all be praying for health & welfare of the 5 Justices who held the majority in Heller/McDonald. If Obama gets a crack at replacing any of those 5 - we will have no choice but to clarify the 2A with another amendment.
Listening to Schumer is like jamming hot tooth picks into my nostrils.
I was going to ask if this answer was to be answered by the way those in charge for the last couple of years have been doing business or if it needs to be based UPON THE CONSTITUTION. After listening to Schumer, I don't even need to answer, but IT SURE EXPLAINS ALOT ABOUT HOW THINGS HAVE BEEN RUN FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS!
I think he is a very handsome man.
How about illegal, immoral and fatning
