The Dick Act was somewhat of a joke from the beginning and never had any real legal standing.

No session of congress can pass a law that cannot be repealed by simple majority. That would require a constitutional amendment..

Get the point?
Wait...

When was this an actual issue?

What I care about is exposing the ridiculous to the light.

And, it is possible that you could be right, for the first time. I could actually despise individual rights and freedom and would prefer enslavement and tyranny. Then, again, you could be wrong, couldn't you?

Why do you feel it is necessary to launch personal attacks against anyone who disagrees with you ??


He isn't belittling anything that protects anyone's rights. He just pointed out that there are stupid unenforceable laws still on the books. and nonsense like the Dick act.

From the way you vote, and the way you respond to laws that violate the Constitution, I would say that would be the truth.

How was that a personal attack? I didn't resort to name calling, and I didn't actually insult him. I pointed out something that was more than obvious to MOST people on this forum. You can't really call pointing out the truth a personal insult.

So, protecting the 2nd Amendment is nonsense?

1) I really don't care if you like me or not. (seriously, I don't recall ever even seeing you before)

2) Go read some of Chain's old posts, and you will see exactly what I mean.

Y'all need to back up off of Tex...

He's one who actually has the balls to say what he means and makes no apologies for his opinions, I respect the hell out of that...

Some of you probably need to re-read the forum rules, especially the part about having a 'thick skin'...get over yourselves...

How about the part about personal attacks on other members??? Maybe you need to read the forum rules.


If you disagree with someone, you attack his argument, you don't don't attack him.

I wasn't attacking him. I was attacking his argument, using all of his old arguments.

as Vincent said, grow a thick skin.
