There was the case of the guy driving from one gun-friendly state to another gun-friendly state. Cops pulled him over in a state that was NOT firendly to guns (I believe, Illinois) with NO JUST CAUSE, proceeded to open his trunk, find said guns, and arrested him on like 50 felonies, because there were like 20 guns and ammo.

The guns were properly licensed and completely legal for him to posses in both the state he lived in and was traveling from and every state he was going to spend the night in his 3 day voyage.

The guy got something like 30 years in prison!!

I don't think this is the same story, but it's very similar:

God! Why are so many Slashdotters so hopelessly naive on this subject?! The Net Neutrality regulations were a major overstep by the FCC and SHOULD have been a law passed by Congress. Therefore, JUST to preserve our own liberty it ought to be struck down by Congress.

however, the regulations as they stand now will HURT innovation. I don't understand why so many of you can't see that?! Did the words "net neutrality' short circuit your reasoning process?
