Their end goal is not to produce plastic guns, but to show the futility of restricting guns.
An idea can be both weapon and expression. As a free individual, I have a right to both.
Senator Rand Paul, a Republican presidential candidate who has made opposition to overbroad surveillance central to his platform, tweeted: “The phone records of law abiding citizens are none of the NSA’s business! Pleased with the ruling this morning.”
How fast would his attitude towards surveillance change if were elected president?
Are you suggesting that it's best to elect someone who loves overly broad surveillance and despises the 4th amendment?
700 Watts? Time to increase to 260 Kilowatts. It should be hard to ignore 250-300 HP results.

If it were otherwise, a government office could rent or borrow property from a private citizen and thereby censor the public's speech on that property.

except it's the selfish assholes who equip themselves to guard what they have against anybody else getting it. The selfish assholes survive because they have the keys to the grain silo, everybody else (read: who hasn't got a copy of the key) can go die in a field. Selfish asshole (=selfish gene) survives, the meek inherit the Earth. From six feet beneath it.
Help me understand why it's selfish to protect your stuff but it's compassionate to give away someone else's.
Guess we won't hear anything about this on the SOTU.
This is a corrupt game of musical chairs.
I'm surprised the music hasn't stopped for the last time.
If only we had real journalists and uncorrupted law enforcement to hold them accountable.
... cares for the nation
As long as we still rely on the Republicans and the Democrats to steer this country, USA is going nowhere fast
If we were truly going nowhere, it would be less worrisome. Make no mistake, we're moving and the ultimate destination is frightening.
