The Right To Bare Arms and Other Body Parts

The Supreme Court Ruling yesterday seemed to uphold the 2nd amendment right for the people to bare arms, but I for one, think that this ruling did not go far enough. I have been baring my arms for years, and so have millions of others. I did not know that was even an issue before the Court! Don't we have many more important issues than the right of Americans to wear short sleeve or sleeveless shirts?

So, where do we as a society draw the line.? We have become a nation of crack addicts. Several days ago I was in the parking lot of Stein's in Osburn sipping a mocha when a young lady got out of her car parked next to mine. She evidently dropped something, and with one swooshing sound she bent over to retrieve the item. She was wearing some very loose fitting lounging pants with nothing on underneath them. Right before my virgin eyes there was the full moon staring me right in the face. This past Tuesday my wife and I were sitting down in the Gondola Village in front of the Wildcat Pizza sipping some cold drinks. Across the way a young man stood up, bent over, and there again, was the full moon. Now, I ask you, does the 2nd amendment give us the right to bare butts? I think this should go before "Your Honors", and let them sort that one out!

How about the right to bare navels? Recent trends seem to indicate that every teenage girl between the ages of thirteen and seventeen feels it is their constitutional right to bare theirs.
Now, I have nothing in particular against navels, as a matter of fact, here is a deeply kept secret, I have one, too. But it is getting a little tiring to see so many everyday. I have not seen so many navels since I visited the huge Navy base in Long Beach, California several years ago.

How about the right to bare legs? This has become a very accepted practice over the last fifty years, and I personally think it is a fine idea. As a matter of fact, I have on shorts even as I write this. Does the Court want to rule on this, too?

Where does all of this end? The right to bare breasts, groins? Looks to me like the Court is going to be busy for many years. But yesterday was indeed a victory for those of us who like to wear short sleeve shirts. Keep up the good work, Supreme Court.

LOL@the right to bare short sleeved shirts lmfao.....

I still dont get the 'right to bare arms' as in firearms... I just done get it... I aint got a problem with those having guns for hunting.... not that Im particular for hunting, but each to their own..... but to just have guns carried willy nilly is such a scary thought to me.... it would not make me feel safer it would make me feel more afraid..... and it actually did the few times that Ive been in the states....

love this post, you funny man....

Marmite Toasty, we have to have arms in this country becasue we are a nation of peace, and the only way to have peace is to shoot people.LOL. The late, great, George Carlin said"Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity"

Hey...we are talking about the sacred Second Amendment here. Just having moved, Matt and I decided that the show case of our living room would be the Browning Gun Safe. Nice decor what with the dead animal skins hanging from the wall. So... Show some crack...er respect! Speaking of that I too am familiar with the crack problem in Shoshone County. I was driving two of the kids up to a lake and came around the corner and there were three, count them, three ladies doing their business next to their car in the middle of the road. Guess it was 'out in the wilderness' or something. Anyway, all we saw was three buttocks hopping up the road to get in the car. HA! I explained to the kids that what they had seen was an example of the growing crack problem that they read about in the paper all of the time.
