    One cannot amend liberties... That would be like founding a relationship with an individual via a gift then several years later telling that individual to give that gift back...
    In the final analysis the supreme authority in the United States is We the People. Which is why there are mechanisms for amending the Constitution.

    A constitutional amendment can take any form at all. There is no such thing as an "unconstitutional" constitutional amendment. If we were all converted to a certain religion I have in mind tomorrow and decided that as a result of our new found belief that women and Christians should lose the franchise then an amendment could be passed to that effect and it would become the law of the land (whether that comports with natural law or not).

    Well then, if all you want to do is whine about what rights are guaranteed us by our constitution I guess you can, but we have a long line of those in here already.

    Well this is interesting - It seems that prison inmates are using the lists published by the Journal to harass the guards!

    But it's all in the name of keeping society safer, right Journal News?

    . You can also add my spelling to the list. I am only interested in communicating with those who are intelligent enough to figure out my meaning. The red herring is always a good sign of a weak argument.

    Re: Newspaper helps ensure safety of registered gun owners



    Over the weekend, a home on the map published by the Journal News was burglarized and the crooks went straight for the guns.

    A White Plains residence pinpointed on a controversial handgun permit database was burglarized Saturday, and the burglars' target was the homeowner's gun safe.

    At least two burglars broke into a home on Davis Avenue at 9:30 p.m. Saturday but were unsuccessful in an attempt to open the safe, which contained legally owned weapons, according to a law enforcement source. One suspect was taken into custody, the source said.

    The gun owner was not home when the burglary occurred, the source said. The victim, who is in his 70s, told Newsday on Sunday that he did not want to comment while the police investigation continues.

    At this point, the Journal News has refused to comment about the controversy of the their story. With the latest burglary, it's past time they did.....snip~

    They took it down.....even tho Coumo now knows who has guns in that area. As well as any what they are Classifying as Assault Weapons.


    New York newspaper takes down gun owner details from website.....

    (Reuters) - A New York newspaper pulled the names and addresses of thousands of gun permit holders from its website on Friday, ending a fierce battle over the data published after the Connecticut elementary school massacre.

    The Journal News, which serves suburbs just north of New York City in Westchester and Rockland counties, cited in part New York's new gun control law, which allows permit holders to request confidentiality, for its decision to take the data down.

    Hasson said the decision to remove the information was not a concession to critics who questioned the value of posting it or a response to the threats to staff, and that the newspaper would "continue to report aggressively on gun ownership."

    She said the newspaper does not endorse the state legislature's decision to limit public access to the permit data, "But we are not deaf to voices who have said that new rules should be set for gun permit data."
