quote: Not debating whether what the NSA is doing is right or wrong but saying they violated my Constitutional guarantees is nonsense.
quote: and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized
quote: Does that mean what's been done by the NSA is perfectly fine and well ? That it meets some Constitutional muster ?
quote: As for the harm that's done ... do you really believe that this power, left unchecked, won't be abused by some future administration?
quote: We have possessed nukes for almost 70 years why haven't they been abused? You have a knife in your kitchen left unchecked how can we trust you won't stab someone
quote: Sorry that's a nonsense argument and again lacks an understanding of where US Government power is derived.

quote: The only violations of my Constitutional rights i have seen is Colorado's recent guns laws that directly infringe on my 2nd amendment rights, laws that are obviously illegal. Where is the outrage for that?
quote: Do you also support any person owning a gun. ie felons or the mentally ill? It is their right after all, right?
quote: Full disclosure, I'm a gun owner and licensed for concealed carry.
quote: What disturbs me is that they keep chipping away at that right. We've seemed to lose the importance of that word - right - in modern society.
quote: What's happening in Colorado is the worst kind of anti-gun fascism. This representative Fields is an out of control Liberal wacko with an anti-Constitutional agenda, and must be stopped.
quote: As for your Gun, what part of the constitution did they violate? Have they taken away all your guns? Or just restricted you from some (sorry not up on this new CO law)
quote: So Show me were in the constitution it says what type of gun you can carry or even that it says you can carry any type?
quote: Unless there's some specific clause given in the Constitution that allows the Govt to restrict the item, or it can logically be derived from some clause, then the Govt has no legal ability to make any restriction. The Constitution does not grant rights !!!
