A very good discussion going on at Volokh on the DC ruling. It gets into the comments a bit about whether guns painted a certain color could be ban. It’s argued that could be a first amendment issue. Someone in the comments brings in the funny with:
What we need is for someone to come up with a â€œBong hits 4 Jesusâ€ durocoat.
I’m sure that the folks at Lauer will get right on that. Oh, if you don’t get that reference, just click here.Â UnfortunatelyÂ that argument lost :)

Actually, it was the trial court that ruled. The DC Circuit is the appeals court that will undoutedly be the next stop for the case.
Well the Bong Hits kids was at a school event (though he was skipping school) and near school. They couldn’t arrest just anyone for that sign.
1A is a good route actually.
He wasn’t skipping. They dismissed for the torch relay. He also wasn’t arrested. He sued the school because he was merely punished.
