UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT MAKES FIRST EVER RULING REGARDING SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS

“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”. This, the wording of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, has caused great debate throughout our country’s history. In efforts to reduce high rates or crime and to promote safety, many laws have been passed in an attempt to regulate ownership and use of firearms.

R. KELLY NOT GUILTY IN CHILD PORNOGRAPHY TRIAL

Seven hours was all it took for a jury to acquit singer R. Kelly of 14-counts of child pornography, a verdict six-years in the making. Kelly was accused of videotaping a sexual encounter with a female who allegedly was 13-years old at the time. Both Kelly and the now 23-year old victim each denied their alleged participation in the video. Defense attorneys also argued that the man in the video did not have a mole on his back, a feature their client in fact did have. Neither Kelly nor the alleged victim testified during the month-long trial. Relatives of the alleged victim gave...
