13. and it continues
By the way, did you really need to be told AshKKKroft and his GOP idiots fucked up the Lindh case?
"Remember the hullabaloo last week when the Justice Department changed course completely and came out in support of broader Second Amendment rights for private citizens? Well, Lindh's lawyers threw the feds' now-famous footnote back in their faces Wednesday by arguing that any prosecution of Lindh for carrying a weapon while legally acting as a Taliban soldier would violate his gun rights as recognized by federal officials. The idea is that the Second Amendment right the government now says it recognizes ought to trump the federal statute that generates a separate crime of carrying a weapon while committing a crime of violence. It should be fascinating to read what federal prosecutors write in response to the defense argument and whether the government actually backs off a bit in declaring gun rights so paramount."

So you are trying to tell me that that a guy can take up a war against his country, while living and fighting for a whole different country, and still have his second amendment rights? You know this is hoooey. Nice little spin but i dont think many people are going to buy it. Sure his lawyers might try it, but thats a far f#*king cry from succeeding.

Im still hearing the crickets from my original post.
