Thoughts from the Sage...
THE DEMS HAVE ABANDONED ANY PRETENSE OF CONSTITUTIONALITY IN THEIR ATTACKS AGAINST THE SECOND AMENDMENT. NOW, IT'S ALL ABOUT CRASS VIRTUE-SIGNALING AND CONFIRMING THEIR "WOKE" BONA FIDES. The ordinance won't withstand constitutional scrutiny:
So the ordinance violates the First Amendment just because of its disclosure requirement alone. And it also invites First Amendment discrimination lawsuits by individual contractors who are denied contracts after they disclose that they deal with the NRA, just as an employer's asking applicants to disclose their religion would invite religious discrimination lawsuits by applicants who aren't hired (and even in the absence of specific regulations barring such question).
Naturally, the same would be true if a city asked companies whether they do business with or sponsor the NAACP, the ACLU, or any other group because of the group's political advocacy. But note that this principle applies only when the disfavored groups are selected because of what they say or what laws they support; the analysis would be different if an ordinance focuses on nonspeech actions. Asking companies where they have any contracts for building a border wall, for instance, would not violate the First Amendment, because such building isn't protected by the First Amendment. (Some such queries might in some situations violate other rules, such as those related to federal preemption, but that's a separate matter.)
Bad policies make bad laws, and THIS GUN BILL [LINK] proves the point. In an effort to stem the non-existent problem of mass killings attributable to the private sales of firearms, the Left has proposed a bill that would have no deterrent effect on criminals but would ensnare a broad swath of otherwise-innocent citizens as unintentional felons.
"The bill is H.R. 8, the “bipartisan” Background Checks Act of 2019. As introduced, the legislation would mandate background checks even when a gun is temporarily transferred from one person or entity to another.
This would cover transfers of firearms with historical significance to a museum for public display, a suicidal person who asks a friend to take his guns, or an injured car accident victim who alerts an emergency responder that there is a gun in his vehicle and asks the responder to keep the gun from falling into the wrong hands when the vehicle is towed."
As you ponder the absurd consequences of the bill, keep in mind that its underlying purpose has little to do with stopping criminal activity and everything to do with furthering the broad political agenda of the Left: bigger and more invasive government, undermining traditional American culture, disarming the citizenry, and placating the Dem's emerging socialist base.
I wish the sponsor of THIS GEORGIA BILL EXEMPTING THE TAX ON FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS OUT OF FAIRNESS TO WOMEN and the BROWN UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATOR WHO DECIDED FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS SHOULD BE STOCKED IN THE MEN'S RESTROOMS would get together and decide whether or not both men and women need such products. The answer was self-evident from the beginning of human history until last year, but it now appears that the Left is suddenly divided on the issue. I have no problem exempting those items from taxation (the fewer taxes, the better), but if the reason for doing so is to remove an inequitable burden on women, what do you tell the "men" at Brown who use them as well?
At some point, the edgy concept of intersectionality will, by necessity, collapse under its own weight because, if our woke thought-police continue to slice society into an infinite number of distinct victim groups, eventually everyone becomes both a victim and a perpetrator. This emerging reality is exemplified by the recent REACTION TO MARTINA NAVRATILOVA'S OPPOSITION TO TRANSGENDER ATHLETES. Remarkably, Navratilova, a legendary tennis star and pioneer of women's rights and gay rights, is now cast as an oppressor in the emerging turf war within the LGBT community. When victimhood becomes power, the race becomes one to the bottom, and everyone loses.
"The Beretta M9s that stood guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns for more than 11,000 days were relieved of their duties on Oct. 11 during a special ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. SIG Sauer officially presented a set of finely crafted M17 Tomb of the Unknown Pistols to the U.S. Army’s 3rd Infantry Regiment—“The Old Guard.” The fit, finish and honor built into their design makes them a befitting heir at one of our nation’s most-solemn sites."
