Thread Name: House Concerts a Federal Case
Subject: RE: House Concerts a Federal Case
Richard Bridge is right on target with his comments--

The principle of restriction of law making powers layed out in the constitution goes a step further in the US, at least in the Federalist view-the idea is that the bill of rights was a positive affirmation that no law making authority, local, state or federal, should have the power to impinge on human rights that have been traditionally granted in "natural law", roughly corresponding to common law--

In keeping with that point, issues here are deeper issues, specifically related to questions about the degree that any level of government is entitled to regulate the "natural law"   uses of private, personal property .
