74: Gun Control
... court ruled that laws could be passed regarding gun control. The court said “The right they’re specified is that of 'bearing arms for a lawful purpose.'

The second amendment declares that it shall not be infringed; but this, as has been seen, means no more than that it ... called, in The City of New York v. Miln, 11 Pet. 139, the 'powers which relate to merely municipal legislation, or what was, perhaps, more properly called internal police,' 'not surrendered or restrained' by the Constitution of the United States” (FindLaw).

76: Compare and contrast the United States Bill of Rights and the Texas Bill of Rights
... and the Texas Bill of Rights Our founding fathers thought it best for the United States that they create a country based on freedom and rights, than being ruled in absolute tyranny.

... one citizen should be king."(1288a15-20) The key to Aristotle's quote is hidden in his definition of excellence.
