If the woman of this child had only aborted it, this man wouldn't have had his peace disturbed. What's wrong with people!?
If theres really plenty of folks here that advocate such ideas, please cite an example. I don't mean to rudely call you on that.
I will say this...just as with many aspects of the Constitution, the rights expressed are implied (as I see it) as defaults, common and assumed, with the legislation coming after the fact.
In other words, "shall not be infringed" seems to assume that certain liberties are existent prior to government consideration. The Constitution backs those rights up, but it's not the Constitution that established those rights.
(agreed, not in all cases, and open to interpretation by folks lots smarter than me)
Hi Pepper. I understand yr skepticism, but I guarantee you there are people who have claimed that the 2nd amendment should not be subject to any restrictions. I cam find examples when I'm not on my iPhone, too tiresome.
I agree it's not a reasonable position but it's definitely been set forth.
The guy is scum and can't believe he got off the plane with his teeth.
I like anyone else get a bit aggitated when a baby is crying in closed quarters of a airplane, but that aggitation would turn to blind fury if some old drunk slapped an infant and screamed in his mothers face.
Actually, she had 20 years suspended with five years probation. Rather light, but I wouldn't say "nothing."

Not to intercede on behalf of Ms Maggie (she is quite capable of defending her own position)...but she is (basically) correct. I've been part of discussions where folks (like Jeebus and a few others) have put forth their opinions that: (1) guns should be allowed on planes (by passengers) and (2) teachers in elementary (etc) schools should be allowed to carry a gun. Basically - no restrictions. That said, was every possible scenario/condition discussed? No, but I think we can infer the "no compromise" position on any gun restrictions from these examples. The guns on planes was a fairly recent discussion, as I was contending that a stray bullet could depressurize the cabin and/or sever a controlling cable/hydraulic.
But all this is moot, as the Supreme Court said that such restrictions do not infringe on the 2nd, and are allowed.
I don't really know his situation, but the point I'm making is the law is separate from anything else that is happening to him. He deserves a lot of jail time. For starters he assaulted someone. Second, slapping a baby is no small matter. That baby could have gotton seriously hurt with even a slight slap. Third, if he used the n-word than I would argue hate crime (and I can't stand the whole concept of hate crime, but this seems to fit if any).
I would have been in jail if someone struck my kid .......
just can't imagine anyone doing this ......
Just imagine what that baby could have done if concealed carry was a reality!
