Do they go through your vehicle? Did they go through your belongings and open up any bags or containers?

No, but he was looking into the car and looking for any reason to conduct a search.

I keep my car organized and clean, so there is nothing that would provide such cause.

Did this guy have the magazines laying out in plain sight? Otherwise, I wonder how he found them.

Clean cars are the best, I don’t have anything laying out in plain view in my vehicle.

I think that by the time an individual reaches the point of standing before a jury, that individual is destroyed financially; the state has effectively won regardless of the verdict or nullification. (My thoughts at this time, I appreciate your feedback.)

Yes - and no. A lawyer can demand a "speedy trial" (the Sixth Amendment, which the far left has not yet undermined), which at least in the states I am familiar with starts a limited clock and reduces the financial damage from a frivolous or malicious prosecution. Also, there is a difference between the financial damage from 90 days without working even if held without bail (Amendment Eight), and the unrecoverable damage of a felony conviction. I would be more than happy to be the defendant in a case like this, and it would not surprise me if a patriotic veteran was comfortable with taking that risk. If someone is in that situation, for patriotic reasons or just from bad luck, I want to be there to vote for acquittal.

I have never heard of this “Constitution Free Zone” before last night. It would seem that we would be aware of this change of 100 miles from the border (DHS - 2008), anyone can be searched without probable cause.

I don’t know the details or if it is fact, but found this

Does anyone know if this is true?

The map is bogus ACLU bs. The whole US is a Constitution free zone. The passage of gun control laws, Patriot Act, Rico, and other laws has made the whole US a Constitution free zone.

Oh, I know. I’m in the ducal fiefdom of the house of Biden. Dad’s the court jester for the regime; one son is AG and does what daddy says; another son is a crook and the daughter is a drunk & a druggie.

“Just a little clarification there...”

Yep. For example we’re in the 3rd circuit here in NJ which is loaded with Reagan and Bush I and II appointees, where are the NRA lawsuits for NJ’s unconstitutional gun laws?
