Not Getting It

How about a $1,000 reward for anyone who can find the words “the right to pack heat in a tavern” in the Constitution?

Neat Game, Fatty! How about where’s “…the right for you to have a TV show”? Or “…The Right to have a Twitter Account”?

Sorry the Bill of Rights says what government Can’t Do. There’s no right that allows you to be Hindu, or Scientologist, or Wicca in the constitution. Instead it just says:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

And what scares the Marxists the most is:

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

What’s scary is how buried that little amendment has become under legal bullshit…tho we’ve done a LOT of work digging it out!

    Here is the closest I can do.

    US Constitution : Article. I. Section. 1.
    “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

    US Constitution Amendment 10 –
    “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    Maine Constitution, Article 1, section 16 –
    “Section 16. To keep and bear arms. Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned.”

    17-A M.R.S.A. § 1057, Possession of firearms in an establishment licensed for onpremises consumption of liquor:
    1. A person is guilty of criminal possession of a firearm if:
    A. Not being a law enforcement officer or a private investigator licensed under Title 32, chapter 89 and actually performing as a private investigator, the person possesses any firearm on the premises of a licensed establishment posted to prohibit or restrict the possession of firearms in a manner reasonably likely to come to the attention of patrons, in violation of the posted prohibition or restriction; or

    So….. Law says that I can carry in a tavern as long as I don’t carry contrary to any posted requirements.

      Was having a discussion with a friend about that. Essentially it means Bar/Restaurant is 100% legal unless the door is posted. And if the door is posted, but they don’t serve booze they can pound sand…

      That’s how I read it.

      • Wally says:

        It doesn’t have to be posted on the door, and the posting doesn’t necessarily mean no guns.

        In Maine, a bar can post “no concealed Rugers because ol’ bill was a sellout”, which would be 100% legal for them to do, and 100% legal for glocks and colts to remain concealed.

    Sorry the Bill of Rights says what people Can’t Do

    Doesn’t it say what the government can’t do? 🙂

    And that is where the words are. Wally has it right — Amendment 10 says the people keep the right to ‘pack heat’.

    Don’t you love how the nanny staters have to use loaded words with negative connotations to get even a few people to agree with them…..and the ones that do agree with them are typically like Mikeb302000 (admitted criminal) or Joan Peterson (seemingly devoid of logic).
