    Mass mailing of ballots got Biden elected. When I voted at the court house in Mason City I had to show my drivers license so they could scan it. Many states vilated their constitution by mass mailing ballots and not checking signitures.

    Article on Infro Wars this morning – The city of Ellingston ILL. is cancelling the 4th of July parade and fireworks and replacing it with a Juneteenth and LGBT parade – but what else would you expect from a liberal socialist shithole – Cancel your Independence day – A national holiday celebrating a long fought war against a foreign power and America Independence from a dictatorship not to mention the thousands of American Patriots who gave their lifes to free America and its patriotic American people. To replace it with a false GOD is a communist agenda and sinful to say the least. What did you expects from these heathens who stole the election?

          They cancelled it in March when a lot of communities were cancelling events in the summer. Right now, the science says gatherings are safe if you have been vaccinated. It’s a little late in the game to organize and produce a big show. By the way, they didn’t cancel the 4th of July. The last time I checked, it is still on the calendar between July 3rd and July 5th. Don’t be a Karen.

          And freedom of speech meant you could actually say things WITHOUT WORRY of asshats trying to censor or deplatform you.

          You are using failed logic in your argument. “back when guns held only one shot and took some time to reload and fire.”
          To use this same logic, lets go back to NO Electronic Media, NO Telephones/Cell Phones,NO High Speed Printing presses, NO High Speed Delivery, NO Radio, NO television, Taking months to get news across 13 small states. High speed transit being, the speed of the horse.

            Freedom of Speech only means that there will be no GOVERNMENTAL backlash to your speech, if your community or social media platform finds it offensive they have a right to censor you. Hey, if you don’t like it then keep your offensiveness off of the internet.

            You want to say,”Yep, back when guns held only one shot and took some time to reload and fire.”

            In the majority opinion authored by Justice Antonin Scalia,June 26 2008, the Court first conducted a textual analysis of the operative clause, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The Court found that this language guarantees an individual right to possess and carry weapons. The Court examined historical evidence that it found consistent with its textual analysis. The Court then considered the Second Amendment’s prefatory clause, “[a] well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,” and determined that while this clause announces a purpose for recognizing an individual right to keep and bear arms, it does not limit the operative clause.

          You’re a real thinker. You seriously think the founding fathers didn’t imagine gun technology would advance? Men who grew and developed and participated in the INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION didn’t see the designs changing and becoming better and more efficient over time? You’re a retard. It isn’t written about hunting. Regulated has 4 definitions and they never meant government over reach when they wrote the document. You’re really a waste of space.
