Vibrators Don't Kill People

The Supremes have refused to hear a challenge to the law in Alabama outlawing sex toys. What are they going to ban next? Surely not guns!

No, the Supremes are not going to hear the case involving the sex toy ban in Alabama. Perhaps if the members of the Supreme Court were forced to live in the state they would understand the hardship the people there are going through. From the Associated Press:
An adult-store owner had asked the justices to throw out the law as an unconstitutional intrusion into the privacy of the bedroom. But the Supreme Court declined to hear the appeal, leaving intact a lower court ruling that upheld the law.
Sherri Williams, owner of Pleasures stores in Huntsville and Decatur, said she was disappointed, but plans to sue again on First Amendment free speech grounds.
"My motto has been they are going to have to pry this vibrator from my cold, dead hand. I refuse to give up," she said.
