"The State cannot diminish rights of the people."<br />
Remind me why felons can't own firearms again?
What rights are you referring to??
The 2nd Amendment. "As spelled out in Chapter 44 of Title 18 of the United States Code (U.S.C.), federal law bans convicted felons from possessing firearms or ammunition. (The U.S.C. is a compilation of congressional laws organized by topic and subtopic: Title 18 defines federal crimes and criminal procedure, and Chapter 44 (Sections 921-931) covers firearms.)" What was that about not infringing upon people's rights?
I was referring to your statement;" "The State cannot diminish rights of the people."
BTW, the right to possess a firearm is not absolute. We can't own a functioning bazooka or mortar
I'm pointing out that he's using that 'precedent' to defend a secret compartment, when it's clear that the country CAN infringe or reduce rights of the people. I dunno what he's so worried about anyway, unless he's smuggling drugs, weapons, or illegal immigrants, it's not like they'd be looking for a compartment. Even if they suspected drugs they'd get a dog and find them. More importantly, he assumes they'd respect his 'rights'. That's the part i find funniest.
There is no defined right to own or maintain a hidden compartment in a vehicle. Government can't infringe on a right that doesn't exist.
Yes, that as well, but his argument falls apart when you know that all rights have limits. He's trying to use some bastardized inteepretation of the fourth amendment i suppose.
yes it's legal, unless it's decided by the federal supreme court that it is unconstitutional. That's how the court system works. if there was an issue it would have been blocked.
You mean the same amendment that was used to deny women and blacks their rights because they 'weren't people'? Great argument.
Name the three 'felonies' people commit per day. And don't say interfering with the mail by picking up their neighbors.
Most cited are not felonies.... and I certainly don't do those things daily. Try again.
So, you copy-write your e-mails and lying is a felony???
Since when is giving a person an aspirin a felony???
BTW, the law you cited only applies to copyrighted materials. Try again...
Tell us about it.
A hidden compartment where??? When did the law pass?
I just found the news report on the incident: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/11/22/police-find-hidden-compartment-in-mans-car-but-no-drugs-or-illegal-items-so-why-was-he-arrested/
I don't know how the law is stated, but a state certainly has the right to regulate the condition and construction of motor vehicles. California has done so for years.....
