    As a matter fact I do. However, they didn't marry just because of tax breaks, but breaks that married couples get that single people do not. Lower insurance rates, medical benefits, etc.

    Specific intent of a law is meaningless, the courts apply laws as written. The 2nd amendment was intended to keep citizens armed with guns like muskets, rifles, pistols, and other various guns of the time. Should the law not apply to preserving the right to keep modern handguns?

    There are no restrictions on Equal Protection in our Constitution. It is a blanket rule that the courts can apply to all citizens.

    I guess New Hampshire is after the money of gay people.

    So there are states that don't take money away from gays? Which ones are those?

    I would like to know which states take no money from gays. I mean there is driver licensing, commercial licenses, etc. I don't know any state that isn't after money from gays or anyone else.

    Indeed and when you need to know what what the words and phrases meant it is to the long held, original views you must turn. Only if such a situation is very, very close to that can the judiciary stretch it that tiny amount.

    The 2nd amendment was intended to keep citizens armed with guns like muskets, rifles, pistols, and other various guns of the time. Should the law not apply to preserving the right to keep modern handguns?
    That is a silly way of interpreting it. The FF's knew technology would change, it is part of the original meaning to interpret it in this way. That is a bogus analogy, bereft of common sense.

    There are no restrictions on Equal Protection in our Constitution. It is a blanket rule that the courts can apply to all citizens.
    Rubbish under that logic you turn the constitution into m ere guidelines and destroy the rule of law and separation of powers. Any clause or word could be completely redefined by the courts for their own agenda. The equal protection clause was introduced for certain thins, for the court to expand or change these is Judicial activism and does all the above.
