These gaddamn activist judges have been chipping away at it for 50 years now. It's got to the point that some rational people really believe there should be restrictions on our God Given Rights.
Could you imagine the outrage if someone put this much effort into stifling any of the other Amendments ... like the FIRST???
Incidents just this week point toward the attack on the 1st amendment.
First is the teacher, Ms. Thomas, in Broward school district in Florida, adamantly refusing to let a child read the Bible during Free Reading Time. '' Congress shall make no law..........prohibiting the free exercise thereof (religion).'' That's about as plain as can be. Now we provide prayer rooms, rugs and time for the Muslim kids in schools because we have no balls to stand up to them but Christians are discriminated against by the Immam-in-Chief.
Then the proposed ruling this week that groups over 49 people are not allowed to meet in Fairfax, Va. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/05 ... ate-homes/
Again, this is the 1st amendment's right to assemble. It may only be a proposal but it will keep being proposed until some left wing judge, totally ignoring the 1st amendment, decides to uphold it. Then it costs us all money as it goes up the chain of left-wing judges.
They are hammering at all our rights!
