LA city council passes law that you must disclose "ties" to the NRA if applying for any city contracts.

I'll be curious to see how this might hold up in court. Though I'm not sure anyone will take trouble to go to court (outside of maybe the NRA). Note that Los Angeles forbids asking prospective employees if they have a criminal history.

Weren't there already court precedents about memberships in organizations?

Don't worry the Typhus outbreak will probably get the city council first.

Wouldn't that be a Bill of Attainder?  (unconstitutional)

So say you.

So say I.

But it's constitutional until a court says it isn't.

One of the biggest problems in this country is that the founders assumed legislators would look at the constitution first before proposing a law.

The other biggest problem is the founders assumed that lawmakers would be honorable men and would take their oaths of office seriously.

Unfortunately, somewhere along the way politics got to be an industry instead of a calling.

There.  I said it and I ain't takin' it back.

"Equality" in our system of government only means equality of opportunity and equal protection under the law.  It does not mean, nor does it mandate, numerical identity in all things between all people.

I think they assumed the people would rebel again if those things happened.

If all laws made were presumptive UNCONSTITUTIONAL from the start,  can you imagine what the court system would be like?

And .... still no gaurantee our legislatures would care about the Constitution.

TommyGunn remarked,

An interesting concept.  I think I'll mull that one over for a while.

I've suggested for decades that all laws have to have an expiration date, and that two have to be repealed for another to pass, but that's an interesting twist, so thank you, TommyGunn.

However, we must keep in mind that it is the essential function of any government of any form whatsoever, to progressively limit freedoms.

. . . Note that Los Angeles forbids asking prospective employees if they have a criminal history. . .
Would that include people applying for a job as the salesman at a sporting goods retailer's gun counter?

Or as a clerk in a pharmacy that stocks opioids and such?

What about bank tellers? Security guards? Police, fire, EMS, teachers, day care workers?
