The St. Louis Blues defeated the Boston Bruins 4-1 to claim the first Stanley Cup in the 52-year existence of the franchise. No team in NHL history has taken longer to win one. After the Blues scored two first-period goals, including a back-breaker with seven seconds left to intermission, the outcome was never in much doubt.

Since it is expected to be Trump, who would you support to be a Republican President? If Biden takes the nomination, he beats Trump nationally. I expect he will be DNC'd/Hillary'd unless another hack catches them again.



Some progress was made over the years to provide more people to support the elderly.

Word games with the US Constitution. The States obviously, when writing their Constitutions, were in most part very clear what they wanted. The US Constitution made a right absolute. The State Constitution does the same within that State. They don't conflict. I've provided just a few of the States, but all States are there at the link at the bottom.

The People may have arms. Some are specific about in times of peace, no standing army. What do you suppose they do in times of war? The people will bring their guns.

I believe the US Constitution confirms the rights of the people to have arms. Why? Because there were fears of standing armies. The people themselves were the protectors during peace.

US Constitution:
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Alabama: That every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state. Art. I, 26 (enacted 1819, art. I, 23, with "defence" in place of "defense," spelling changed 1901).

Florida: (a) The right of the people to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves and of the lawful authority of the state shall not be infringed, except that the manner of bearing arms may be regulated by law.
(b) There shall be a mandatory period of three days, excluding weekends and legal holidays, between the purchase and delivery at retail of any handgun. For the purposes of this section, "purchase" means the transfer of money or other valuable consideration to the retailer, and "handgun" means a firearm capable of being carried and used by one hand, such as a pistol or revolver. Holders of a concealed weapon permit as prescribed in Florida law shall not be subject to the provisions of this paragraph.
(c) The legislature shall enact legislation implementing subsection (b) of this section, effective no later than December 31, 1991, which shall provide that anyone violating the provisions of subsection (b) shall be guilty of a felony.
(d) This restriction shall not apply to a trade in of another handgun. Art. I, 8 (sections (b)-(d) added in 1990).

Kansas: A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and state, for lawful hunting and recreational use, and for any other lawful purpose; but standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, and shall not be tolerated, and the military shall be in strict subordination to the civil power. Bill of Rights, 4 (enacted 2010).

Mississippi: The right of every citizen to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person, or property, or in aid of the civil power when thereto legally summoned, shall not be called in question, but the legislature may regulate or forbid carrying concealed weapons. Art. III, 12 (enacted 1890, art. 3, 12).

New Hampshire: All persons have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves, their families, their property and the state. Pt. 1, art. 2-a (enacted 1982).

South Carolina: A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. As, in times of peace, armies are dangerous to liberty, they shall not be maintained without the consent of the General Assembly. The military power of the State shall always be held in subordination to the civil authority and be governed by it. Art. 1, 20 (enacted 1895).
1868: "The people have a right to keep and bear arms for the common defence. As, in times of peace . . . ." Art. I, 28.

[Right treated as an individual right, apparently aimed at least partly at self-defense, State v. Johnson, 16 S.C. 187 (1881);

Wyoming: The right of citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and of the state shall not be denied. Art. I, 24 (enacted 1889).
