I'll wager if they would pay as much attention to their wives as they do their firearms; the marriage would be much happier!

Date night usually includes range time... the Mrs. packs some serious heat, too. Just sayin.
Well said...a star for you!!

People use the Constitution for their arguments that end up in Hypocrisy all the time

one Amendment will counter another.

Why is same sex marriage illegal in certain states anyway? are we not Human? why is it not recognized the same as a Heterosexual Marriage Religious reasons?

States can't base laws off of religious reasons right because the separation of church and state? so why is it still illegal for me to get married in some states?

i hear all the time not to compare the discrimination of the LGBTQ to the Civil rights movement, but people are eager to compare Homosexual rights to Gun rights...

The fine points of same sex marriage and all that goes along with it is something that the US Supreme Court is more likely to hear, than if an individual’s states ban on same sex marriage is legitimate or not.

The issue here is that marriage, in all sense in the modern day is a contract, between 2 consenting adults have engaged in. There are rules and guidelines in such a contract, and ultimately, here is where the state of Ohio and other states will have to justify in denying the recognition of such in a legal aspect. If a state finds that such a contract is acceptable, then it is technically acceptable in other states. That means that if you say take a loan out in one state, and then move, you are still legally bound by the terms of the contract to pay back that money. If a business makes a business deal, signs a contract and crosses state lines, then both states would naturally recognize the validity of said contract and see it enforced.

But this is the kind of case that the US Supreme Court has been waiting on. They are wanting to piece meal the legal precedent together, rather than make one broad ruling, that way it would give the individual states time to adjust their laws and ultimately take the time to figure out how to handle the changing social dynamic in their states.
