"If there is a bedrock principle of the First Amendment, it is that the government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea itself offensive or disagreeable."-Justice William Brennan - Texas v. Johnson (1989)
(If only we could apply the concept espoused by Justice Brennan above to Open Carry.)
And for those ignorant folks I've run across lately who continue to claim that the Constitution "grants" rights.
-Justice William Brennan (1982)
"The Framers of the Bill of Rights did not purport to “create” rights. Rather they designed the Bill of Rights to prohibit our Government from infringing rights and liberties presumed to be preexisting."
