Hello Everyone. I have been thinking a lot about our government and the laws they have passed within the last 2 decades. I consider some to be unconstitutional, blatantly so.

Here is the United States government as written by our founding fathers.

The United States Constitution, Articles I-VII
Bill of Rights/Amendments I - X
Amendments XI - XXVII

What laws do you consider unconstitutional? and why?

I would say about 99.9% of them.

Present day eminent domain laws where government can take your property to sell to private investors. What a rip off.


If it was for a much needed school or road I wouldn't mind, but just so some slickster cab get richer is absurd.

I was going to say about 95% of them, but yours is so close had to star it.

We're sovereign beings yet our employees think they can limit their employer group's behavior left right and center. There are few laws that are actually valid, as most just give them sweeping powers. Their drug laws are ludicrous. They don't control or own any land, air or seeds, and may not dictate what nature provides its citizens with. They are employees with swollen heads.

I detest any law against guns. It's obvious why.

Now I am all for laws on registering ammo.

I don't think any law is technically unconstitutional, as they are laws, and therefore legal (in accordance with the constitution) unless ruled otherwise by a judge.

Of all the laws on the books today, I'd have to agree with the above posts that 95% of them are not in the spirit of the founding fathers. The ones I dislike the most are the drug laws

I would suggest researching the Real I. D. Act. Bush passed it in 2005 without congresses approval.

Congress did a quicky on us and attached it to another bill as a rider.


-- Immigrant Security Standards bill
-- Military Death Gratuity Temporary Increase bill

Any treaties (UN, G20, Geneva etc...) are null and void according to the constitution.

The constitution limits what laws can be enacted. Absolutely laws can be unconstitutional. Any law that surpasses constitutional limits is, by definition, unconstitutional. BUT it is still law until someone challenges it.

Nope. See The Constitution of the United States of America

I think that laws on registering ammo are unconstitutional. "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."

Infringed - to encroach upon.

Bearing arms in the context used in the constitution implies that the right of the people to protect themselves is paramount. I also have a right to privacy. Ammo registration is just the beginning of a ban on guns altogether.
