It never made sense to me for the NG to be sent to Iraq.
Ignored by every president since signed. Just as the 2nd amendment.
NFA and 1986 acts?
A well-known internet meme cites the Dick Act as an argument against proposed gun control laws and regulations.However, the meme is inaccurate and cannot be relied on as an argument against the regulation of firearms. To cite one example, the meme claims the Dick Act "cannot be repealed." In fact parts of the Dick Act were effectively repealed when it was modified by the Militia Act of 1908, the National Defense Act of 1916, the National Defense Act of 1920, and the National Defense Act Amendments of 1933.
Where do you get this ""cannot be repealed" nonsense? The most fundamental principle of republican government is that no legislature can bind its successors.
Sounds like a name for legislation that Hussein would like to be passed in 2016.....
All acts of congress can be amended or repealed by another act of congress.
Google the name of the act, and check the Snopes and Wikipedia links. If you don't believe those, check some of the others.
Unfortunately, while not an outright hoax (i.e. the Dick Act was a real piece of legislation), it's not what it's cracked up to be these days.
Snopes is not amused.
The Dick act met the Prick act and lost a long time ago..
Bravo Civil Rights Task Force of Northern Nevada!!
Yes, the leftist Snopes is the determiner of all factual knowledge of the universe.
Glad you’re here to tell us that.
Anything containing stuff like "**SPREAD THIS TO EVERYONE**" can generally be assumed to be fake.
KoolAid is served on both sides of the aisle, apparently.
So you’re saying: “Don’t be a Dick”?
The gender police will love this !
Any LAW can be changed, strengthened, repealed. All it takes is an act of Congress. No Congress can restrict the actions of a subsequent Congress.
The Dick Act of 1902......WILL NOT BE SCHLONGED!!!!
