Hopefully the DC Circuit Court of Appeals will follow the example of the 9th circuit, who ruled earlier this year in Peruta v San Diego that discretion on the issuing authority can not help but lead to instances where that authority denies the right of the people and as such is unconstitutional. California is now a shall issue state (pending appeal) as is Hawaii that had a ruling overturned (Baker v Kealoha) by the 9th Circuit after the Peruta v San Diego verdict.
It seems that acutally being able to exercise a civil right is back in vogue. But what if we applied the same type of mindset that DC and NYC place on the 2nd Amendment to others? This is what an America run by DC and NYC looks like in regards to civil rights.
1st Amendment: You cannot voice an opinion unless you take elocution lessons, are certified in speechgiving, and can display the “need” in which you feel it necessary to speak your mind. The result of which will be determined by the issuing authority of the Vocal Speech Permit card.
3rd Amendment: Unless you can express a valid reason accetable to the authority why troops should not be quartered in your home, you will be forced to provide room and board for them for a time based on the authorities discretion.
