September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

(ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

NRA Rejected by U.S. Supreme Court on San Francisco Gun Law

The U.S. Supreme Court turned away a National Rifle Association challenge to a San Francisco law that requires people who store handguns at home to either put them in a lockbox or disable them with a trigger lock.

Over two dissents, the justices left intact a federal appeals court decision that said the 2007 law was a reasonable step that fostered gun safety without significantly impinging constitutional rights.

The rebuff is a setback for gun-rights advocates, who have repeatedly tried and failed in recent years to get the high court to expand the protections under the Second Amendment. The two dissenting justices, Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia, said lower courts are ignoring 2008 and 2010 Supreme Court decisions that interpreted the Second Amendment as protecting individual gun rights.

“Despite the clarity with which we described the Second Amendment’s core protection for the right of self-defense, lower courts, including the ones here, have failed to protect it,” Thomas wrote for the pair. Thomas and Scalia said they would have heard the appeal, filed by six San Francisco residents and groups including the NRA.

While the 2007 San Francisco law requires people who store handguns at home to either put them in a lockbox or disable them with a trigger lock, people can carry a gun in the home without a trigger lock.

‘Immediate Self-Defense’
The appeal contended that the San Francisco law was similar to the Washington, D.C., trigger-lock requirement invalidated in the high court’s 2008 decision. The groups pointed to a passage in the 2008 opinion that said Washington residents were barred from having a firearm “operable for the purpose of immediate self-defense.”

In urging the justices to reject the latest appeal, San Francisco officials said the two measures contained important differences. Washington had an outright ban on handguns, and its trigger-lock rule also applied to long guns.

“San Francisco’s ordinance allows citizens to carry loaded and unlocked handguns on their person at any time, including in a holster,” the city argued.

“It also allows citizens to store loaded handguns within an easily opened lockbox rather than ‘disassembled or bound by a trigger lock at all times,’” officials added, quoting from the 2008 ruling.

The case is Jackson v. City and County of San Francisco, 14-704.
