    I hope their decision doesn't open the floodgates.

    I'm telling you - won't be too much longer before Christians are once again hunted down and killed for their Faith. Bowing to Muslim Extremists speeds that date towards us.

    Actually I prefer the M-14; mostly cause I am an old guy and the .50 weighs a ton. Granted, the .50 has more range but I cant see that far anyway. The -14 will get me out to between 800 and 1000 yards which is good enough for where I live and then some.

    This is not done.

    It has to be in conformity with the European Convention of the Human Rights (ECHR) signed in Rome the 11/4/1950 in the Council of Europe (an independant international organization of the European Union - Treaty of Maastricht, 1992 - and the European Communities - Treaty of Rome, 1957 - , the best organization of the world in this domain).

    The article 10 of the ECHR claims the liberty of the press and the liberty of expression. A regulation of the newspappers and of the press would be probably in contradiction, in violation with the ECHR.

    In the past, the ECHR Law Court (in Strasbourg) condamned Ireland for a violation of the liberty of expression to have forbidden the publication of some informations about contraception ways, even if Ireland didn't and still doesn't use abortion (Opendoor v/ Ireland).
    The ECHR Law Court can do the same here.
