    How about you say you are a performance artist? Your medium is writing your name with a Tommy gun on plywood. Yet you cannot afford all the fees, and thus your First Amendment rights are in jeopardy!:D

    I kind of like squinty's views, myself.

    Funny how the ACLU would condone registration of guns in the same manner has cars.

    I wonder what the ACLU would have to say about the registration and licensing of typewriters and modems...

    You just talked me into a career change! Maybe I can win a first amendment suit to avoid paying for the NFA tax stamp!
    Seriously, that would be some awesome performance art.

    I'll send money...

    as soon as i see their filed amicus brief for McDonald. It's the same for the democratic states attorney of Illinois, daughter of the democratic Illinois Senate Leader. Ms Madigan. I'll vote for her or him (not my district) when her name joins the other AG's brief. The second amendment is my litmus test for politicians and "Constitutional Lawyers, Scholars and Teachers". Any bs about " collective right" or "reasonable restrictions" is an automatic failing grade.Prevarication about "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" will not be tolerated. During the vetting of candidates prior to our Feb2 primary, I asked each and every candidate this. "Given Heller, assuming McDonald finds Chicago's ban unconstitutional and assuming mayor Daley acts (doesn't act) as mayor Fenty did, how would you respond?" The only good answer was from congress candidates "cut off all funding to Illinois" and from governor candidates "call out the national Guard because the people will riot" and cut all funding to all Chicago programs.The senate candidates all foamed at the mouth and muttered their support for the second' Mark Kirk was asked why his name wasn't on the congressional brief and he had "no knowledge" that's why I don't support him. His NRA rating "F".:eek:
