"All of us can think of a book... that we hope none
of our children or any other children have taken off the shelf.
But if I have the right to remove that book
from the shelf -- that book I abhor -- then you also
have exactly the same right and so does everyone else.
And then we have no books left on the shelf for any of us."

Same with our rights. Let one person ban one gun and the rest will be banned. "And then we will have no [rights] left on the shelf for any of us." Our rights are being eliminated, one Amendment at a time.

    Our right to choose is a right that should be held sacred to all. Patterson's quote made me reflect on many of our rights as Americans. We should guard these with all of our might.

    The more I research the web for constitutional issues and cases to support legal proceedings, the once vast availability is now dwindling rapidly. - welcome to Amerika.
