SARK IS NOW WEARING HIS LAWYER HAT - LISTEN UP.

The anti-2nd Amendment crowd is about to have the White House and both houses of Congress - all they need in order to pass federal laws. President-Elect Biden has clearly voiced his antipathy to private gun ownership, and some members of Congress are already preparing legislation to severely curtail your gun ownership rights. Only the U.S. Supreme Court is left to guard your 2nd Amendment, but they cannot act unless a "case or controversy" arises.

Q: If a law enforcement officer contacts you asking about guns you may or may not own, what should you do?

A: If you care about the Bill of Rights and your freedom, I suggest you politely do the following: Say you want to speak with a lawyer, then SHUT UP and call your lawyer right away. DO NOT consent to warrantless searches. DO NOT use force to resist. DO NOT open your door or go outside unless the police actually have an "arrest warrant" issued by a judge because, absent emergency circumstances, they usually can't come into your home to arrest you without one.

It's a special time in our beloved country's history. Guard your liberty, protect the rule of law, and stand on your rights - or risk losing them.

Excerpt: “On March 23, Cantil-Sakauye suspended all jury trials in the state for two months. On Saturday, the state Judicial Council — the policy arm of the court system — approved new measures that extended the time frame during which someone who is arrested and charged with a crime must be brought before a judge for arraignment. Under the new measures, that time frame has stretched from 48 hours to seven days. The Judicial Council also extended the time frame during which a preliminary hearing must be set — from 10 days to 30 days. Under current law, if a preliminary hearing is not held within 10 days the person can be released. ‘About the worst place you can be in a ... pandemic is locked up in a jail or prison,’ said Stephen Munkelt, executive director of California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, a statewide organization of criminal defense lawyers.”

“Let every man remember that to violate the law is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the charter of his own and his children’s liberty. Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap; let it be written in primers, spelling books, and almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit; proclaimed in the legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. In short, let it become the political religion of the nation.” - Abraham Lincoln

A serious hearing on marijuana prohibition was overdue

Although the MORE Act will certainly not go anywhere, it is a welcome development from a Congress that, in 1937, rushed to prohibit marijuana based on spurious testimony and hyperbolic fearmongering.

The drafters of the Constitution recognized that restricting the government from violating privacy is essential for a free society. That's why the Fourth Amendment exists. The StingRay clearly violates these standards.
