Comment Re:why qualify the nightclub as "gay"? (Score 1) 224

The problem with your argument is that the possession of arms is a constitutional right. Driving a car is a privilege not a right.
When you remove people constitutional rights they have to already have done something (due process you know) or it's unconstitutional. Privacy is a constitutional right. Requiring a license to use encryption because you may or may not be a terrorist is unconstitutional. This is not rocket science you know. Arguing for the government to take away people constitutional rights without due process on the 2nd amendment and vigorously arguing for them to preserve those rights on the 1st amendment is at the very least hypocritical. If you don't like certain rights granted by the constitution then argue for a constitutional convention to take away those rights.

This judge is not clueless
Judge Alsup writes code

Quote from this judge from this same case before the appeal I believe
I have done, and still do, a significant amount of programming in other languages. I've written blocks of code like rangeCheck a hundred times before. I could do it, you could do it. The idea that someone would copy that when they could do it themselves just as fast, it was an accident. There's no way you could say that was speeding them along to the marketplace. You're one of the best lawyers in America, how could you even make that kind of argument?
