First amendment has no right in inaugaration

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON -- Public display of crosses at President George W. Bush's Inaugural Parade on January 20 will be prohibited, according to a letter sent to the National Park Service by the U.S. Secret Service last month.

On December 17, 2004, the Secret Service sent a letter on U.S. Department of Homeland Security letterhead to Terry Carlstrom, who serves as the regional director of the National Park Service in the National Capitol Region.

A list of banned items during the Inaugural Parade is outlined in the letter, including firearms, ammunition, explosives, weapons of any kind, aerosols, sign supports, packages, coolers, thermal or glass containers, backpacks, large bags, laser pointers, animals, structures, and anything else determined to be a safety hazard.

Are crosses considered as safety hazards or banning them has something to do with the famous crusades speech rolleyes.gif

Sure, we have a right to own and bear arms, but in the right context, like everything else. Its a felony to even have a weapon in public, and a crime to run naked through the streets, and a crime to say "I'm gonna kill the president". rolleyes.gif

I'm all for having a big scary gun, but I don't want somebody walking around with a shotgun while I'm at the mall. One accidental bump and I'm eatting a lot of pain.

hmmm so if we apply this whole violation of the first amendment at the inaugaration...does that mean states which ban concealed firearms are violating the 2nd?

Depending on who you ask; yes. The NRA has many lawsuits on the very subject.

In my opinion if you are a law abiding citizen with the proper training and certifications you should be able to carry a weapon if you choose to, but that is just my opinion.

In my state(Washington); a law abiding citizen who goes through a safety training course can get a concealed weapons permit. Of course there are limits to that permit. Unlike law enforcement CWP do not allow you to carry guns into government buildings, schools, airlplanes...

Any right, comes with certain responsibilities, like free speech, the right to arm bears and so on. Ya can't yell "fire" in a crowded public place and consider the aftermath to be free speech.

As for crosses at the swearing at party. It's goes to... if a little prevention is good, then massive prevention is better. Regardless of what rights are trampled.

In case any Americans have not noticed.... You have never had the real right to free speech. It has always been an illusion. Just ask those that wore t-shirts that may or may not have been offensive to Bush during his campaign, and were politely ruffed up and escorted away from the area.
