Justice Holmes in Schenck v. United States in 1919 stated that falsely yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre would create a "clear and present" danger to the public and at that point the speech was beyond Constitutional protection. In 1969, the Supreme Court tightened the rule in Brandenburg v. Ohio to limit free speech only in cases where it would likely create "imminent lawless action" since the mere creation of danger is not equivalent to the creation of harm. Granted, uttering my username in an airport could create a riot and is therefore unprotected in that context as well. However, in order to create a plausibly similar problem in this forum, my username would have to be something like "BradyVirus" or "GunControlMole", but even then, since the online environment creates no direct opportunity for harm and is unlikely to start a riot, it would be a stretch to apply a 1st Amendment limitation to a username.
Have you considered that your username is perhaps in violation of US Copyright law?
Welcome from another fellow Michigander and Defensive Carry newb. I think you're going to love your new HK 45c. I'm crazy about mine anyway. Fits me like a glove both in the hand and in the holster.
Hi bombthrower77.....I don't know how to post or register "Likes", but I sure do LIKE your post #32 above!
Welcome from Wisconsin>
Hey bombthrower.....Thanks! (hover the mouse). I'm so acustomed to ignoring all the pop-ups and keeerap on my mass-infected craptop.
Now if I could just find the "s" button that keeps popping off I would be all set!!
Welcome! By cans, did you mean suppressors? My son has one for his Glock 19, and it sure seems to cause a lot of malfunctions when it's attached. It seems to interfer with the barrel movement just enough to cause jams. Maybe it's just his, but I'd never trust one for SD myself if that's teh way they work.
Welcome from one prof to another.
