Actually that perfectly illustrates the point, the US judiciary limits freedom of speech too, one cannot legally cause another to fear for their life, cry fire in a crowded theater etc. hence there are limitations to the second amendment also on the same basis, thanks for pointing that out
I'm not sure, but I think the constitution recognises that restrictions to speech in a contract, for example, "please don't shout fire in this theatre", do not violate the first amendment.
"one cannot legally cause another to fear for their life" nor can one point a loaded firearm at someone without breaking the law
"cry fire in a crowded theater" nor can one bring a firearm into any location that has a sign posted that restricts firearms from it
HOWEVER - there are no limits on how many words one may utter, write, broadcast or print
there are very few restrictions placed on how inflammatory or offensive words and images can be
there is no restriction on how long a word is, how many definitions it has, how new or how old it is or how it has been used in the past
The ownership of firearms is essential for the continuation of the Rights conferred upon Americans by Nature. Once that right is removed all other rights are vulnerable.
We would have never had this.
Indeed.....I wonder how many great artists and thinkers we HAVE lost??
I love him. I didn't know that story. That's awesome.
I have a friend who survived an abortion. She was burned with saline solution but lived. She has cerebal palsy as a result and has one of the most beautiful singing voices Ive ever heard. Her name is Giana Jessen.
Beautiful young woman with a glorious voice.

If you were King for a day, what elements of of the U.S. Constitution amd its Amendments would you want to see deleted, repealed, added, or mofified to make it fit more to the way the SIGNERS of the Constitution intended it to mean, given their philosophical druthers and not the political realities...

How can any decent human being think that it's OK to defend white supremacists and Nazis? No one can deny that's what they were, they had banners advertising the fact. I find it shocking that a President could take the attitude Trump has. If it's possible, he has sunk even...

Which is more important, freedom of faith or freedom of speech?Many religious folks are decent, good people. Some of my best friends subscribe to institutionalised superstition - and are good humored enough to let me say that without taking offense. But most religions per se enshrine some deeply...
