lol. The days of the machine politics are gone. And it was mostly just a few cities that had that tight grip. Of course, the Republican machine on Long Island was a suburban rather than a city one, but it had the same control.
You need help to search stuff on the internet? Seriously? Aren’t you the one who peruses the SC website every day?
My point is that there are cops out patrolling the streets and we should not be vigilantes. Making guns more readily available helps the scum as much as it does the average person who wants to carry a gun. If cops can’t stop someone carrying a rifle or handgun in public, then life becomes more dangerous. and yes, some DAs are trash but that’s not an excuse to allow more trash to have guns.
I’m sure you know better than that. First, the Constitution is made up of a series of compromises made during that hot August in 1787. Sometimes the wording is vague on purpose in the hopes it would get enough people to accept it and get it adopted. Second, the “people” means the aggregate, not the individual. For context and meaning, the document which this is drawn from explains more clearly what the gentlemen in Philadelphia were thinking when they wrote it: “That a well-regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.” This is from section 13 of Virginia’s Declaration of Rights, which “was drawn upon by Thomas Jefferson for the opening paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence. It was widely copied by the other colonies and became the basis of the Bill of Rights. Written by George Mason, it was adopted by the Virginia Constitutional Convention on June 12, 1776.” Https://Www.archives.Gov/founding-docs/virginia-declaration-of-rights The “individual” interpretation of that phrase “the people” is a fairly recent interpretation so it’s not an originalist one.

Thanks for the laugh. I think you really should do standup.
It occurs to me that you thought that exonerated him. Is that true?
Don’t get too excited – see the reason in my previous post. As you mentioned previously, something rendering the case “moot” does get the case thrown out. But it’s not a decision based on facts and law.
lol. Yeah, because he was no longer in office. “The high court sent the cases, brought by a government watchdog group and the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia, back to the lower courts with instructions to dismiss them as moot, as Mr. Trump is no longer in office, and vacated the opinions from the 2nd U.S Circuit Court of Appeals and the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.”
What part of “the entanglement of his business affairs and presidential responsibilities” do you not understand?
