    Re: Supreme Court upholds gun ban for domestic violence

    Are those convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence also banned (for life) from becoming law enforcement, security guards or joining the military?

    I don't think anyone is saying the rights are unlimited. The point is the restrictions on free speech are very very narrow and each successive SCOTUS case has reduced the restrictions on free speech.

    This is your response[#10] when Tecoyah agreed with erring on the side of caution.

    You can't err on the side of caution when it comes to constitutional rights.
    My initial response was to show that indeed it had been done.

    Shameful nonsense. Anyone with any sense should see this is a violation of the second amendment.

    Can you show how libel and slander violate your rights?

    Re: Supreme Court upholds gun ban for domestic violence

    There are sio many questions...

    What exactly is "domestic violence". Violence and abuse are radically different. In the fed system for military personnel, abuse includes physical, verbal, sexual, mental abuse, as well as neglect and threats to withhold both fiscal support and emotional support.

    Assuming the legislation SPECIFIES battery type offenses...I think I would support it. Still...is that a lifetime ban? Then surely no one can be upset about felon loss of rights for their lifetime as well. And what of the all too common instance where the couple stays together? Does the battered spouse also lose their rights? What of children living in the home or for that matter...other adults? Lots of questions.

    do those limitations not impair your right to free speech?

    Yes, and that is why I was asking what rights are violated by libel or slander.

    It also violates rights.
