(And I haven't seen "bus" in the Constitution anywhere.)
Where does it say in the constitution I can’t have a Ferrari?
It’s The Bill of RIGHTS, not the bill of needs.
LOL! I am using that symbol! Thanks!
Precisely. They have turned “to secure the blessings of liberty” into “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs [determined exclusively by the State]”
It is to a Marxist. “Abilities” and “needs”, determined by the State, is the only way they see the world. “Freedom? What’s that?”, the Marxist asks.
It is not a Bill of “Needs” as determined by the government. It is a Bill of Rights to let the individual decide how to implement them.
That's what needs to be weighed in the balance - rights versus some dubious but no more than tiny increase in safety.
As usual, Joe hasn’t thought it through. “If you can’t prove to me that you need one, you can’t have one,” are the words of a dictator no matter what the object is.
Who needs more than two terms in any government office?
I clicked your link BECAUSE you posted full-text

A full auto SAW would be the Ferarri. An AR-15 with 30 rd magazines is just a Lexus, an SUV, or a Caddy. Let’s rephrase this in terms that the LIVs can unnerstan’.
I think a good refutation to this is to use Biden’s own analogy. That is, not specifically a Ferrari, but “Who needs a car?”
Joe Biden doesn’t think you need a car. You can walk, ride a bicycle for miles every day, or take a public bus seated between a foul smelling wino and a man who keeps trying to show you something he’s carrying in a greasy paper bag.
Joe Biden thinks that cars should only be for those that need them, like politicians and those who work for them.
They *need* cars. Ordinary people don’t.
Watch out, they are going to ban Ferraris next.
I have shot an M-16, it was nothing like driving a Ferrari, or even a Harley. What a doofus.
So if I crash my Ferarri (i don’t really have one) then should you have your F150 banned?
Silly Billy Biden mixing apples and oranges again.
Focus, Joe Bob!
