Well who ever it came from, I do not advocate for making ammo expensive, I suggest restricting it in the same way that firearms are currently.

I have the perfect solution to the age old problem of loonies getting their hands on firearms once the Supreme Court goes the distance in re-establishing the Second Amendment.

The crazies should be allowed to purchase all the firearms they want! However, the constitution does NOT provide for a right to ammunition. Restrict ammunition to level headed individuals that do not raise any red flags for psychological anomalies.

You think it is possible to change my Saint John's program choice from full-time to part-time before I get REJECTED?

152, 3.8 GPA.

Sure, it feels could to be accepted somewhere. I am still waiting on 8 schools.

Accepted - Touro. Yippie, going to law school.

Matthies, I drool over a position like that. This defense attorney makes money? What are we talking about here... 100K+?

Also, would you recommend I pursue the criminal defense sector? It is my family's tradition, and I'm currently leaning towards it. I think I would find it quite interesting.

What are your thoughts?

And why would I be joking?

Young children use the computer, many of whom I am sure go crazy with the peer-to-peer sharing network. Parents are not always able to spot their children's legal transgressions on the computer, arguably due to their lack of technological know-how.

Are these kids expected to understand and abide by copyright limitations? Are average Americans supposed to be able to tell the difference between public domain material and copyright material? I am not so sure.

For Example:
Friend tells another friend,
"Dude, download Metallica - Enter Sandman"
Friend responds,
"Never heard of them or that song, maybe I can find it on the limewire."

Once this person finds it on limewire (with a slighty different file name) and is unaware of any associated copyrights (since each song does not come with a blatant copyright sticker), should this person suffer the wrath of RIAA lawyers? This person does not know of the band, and is not necessarily unreasonable to think that this song may be public domain. Who knows? This person surely does not.

Ignorance of the law is not a defense, but we are discussing this issue from both a legal and ethical standpoint I presume.

Well I'm not sure if I am looking for hours worked. I just want to understand how long it generally takes to close a case for the flat rate this attorney had posted.

For example, is this a possibility?

Flat rate of $7,000, and a minimal felony drug-dealing charge, resolved in three weeks time: including pleading, discovery and trial/resolution.

Thanks folks.

Yay, everyone likes me.
