On Absoluteness of Constitutional Amendments
January 19, 2013
Regardless of the result of your poll, it is established law that constitutional amendments are not absolute.
There is the well-known exception to freedom of speech that you may not yell "Fire" in a crowded theater.
Likewise, no one is allowed to commit ritual human sacrifice no matter what their religious beliefs. This is also irrelevant to the issue of the Journal News's gun permit map.
That is publicly available information by state law, and remains publicly available whether their map is up or not. I am not a member of the press and yet I can post the same information with impunity.
(Editor's Note: Reading of the section of the New York State SAFE Act, page 30, sets new standards for anonymity of gun permit holders. To read the law and what it says on this topic (page 30) go to: http://open.nysenate.gov/legislation/bill/S2230-2013)
