    While I agree that the ACLU is not eager to defend/extend our 2nd amendment rights, it must, on occasion, do so. As you rightly point out, the ALCU has yet to attack CCW permits, and other "infringements" on the right to keep and bear (carry) arms, simply based on them being unconstitutional violations of the 2nd amendment. Sad that a civil liberties organization, eager to protect some rights does not see that the "bill of rights" did "prioritize" those rights (realtive to each other), but makes them equally important by placing them into the Constitution directly.

    You'd think - but its official position is that it will not.

    One really must wonder why those who are so concerned about rights not listed in the constitution, save for court rulungs of the court, are so happy to ignore rghts that are listed specifically in the constitution, because they hold a position in direct opposition to the rulings of the court.

    I'm not offended by pro choice on license plates and would not go to court to sue someone if it was on a license plate. Life is just too damn short.
    I dont really see how "Choose Life" is in any way shape or form contradictory to the idea of pro choice.

    By using the word CHOOSE, is already covers the fact that there is a choice.....

    And by using the word LIFE, it is covering the moral high ground of your options.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Honestly, it's a ****ing licence plate, it's not changing anyone's views. This is one of those "choose your battles" moments in life. It's the same thing as the whole 'freedom fries' debacle. Who ****ing cares? Why not spend your time on something that actually matters?
    Well I'm not spending any of my time on it, but in a perfect world they should offer both sides. I don't think the government should be getting into the business of only sponsoring one side of highly controversial issues, even on something as unlikely to change someone's views as a license plate.

    Most cops here are NRA supporters themselves.
    Canadian cops mainly since your not allowed to carry guns. If you do you'll be arrested. It's also a safety reason if a person possibly has a gun they are going to treat you with their safety in mind.

    So.... if NC issued a “Slavery Sucks!” plate, the ACLU would sue if the state does not also offer a “Slavery Rocks!” plate?
    That's interesting. I have a "Prevent Domestic Violence" license plate. Is there a "Domestic Violence Rocks" plate out there somewhere?

    Seems ridiculous on its face. The plate is discretionary. Not like everyone is forced to display it.

    Likely not.
    Contact the ACLU and they will sue your state.

    What's controversial about saying "Choose Life"? Who is against the concept?

    Maybe the pro choice people could get their point across with bumper stickers. Something like "I got scraped at the Blue State Clinic". You have to PAY for a specialty plate, they can probably get theirs for free considering the government would be willing to pay for the procedure, particularly if they are underage.
