4. Legal Rights Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice. A) Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure. B) Everyone has the right not to be arbitrarily detained or imprisoned. C) Everyone has the right on arrest or detention (a) to be informed promptly of the reasons therefore; (b) to retain and instruct counsel without delay and to be informed of that right; and (c) to have the validity of the detention determined by way of habeas corpus and to be released if the detention is not lawful. D) Everyone has the right not to be subjected to any cruel and unusual treatment or punishment. E) A witness who testifies in any proceedings has the right not to have any incriminating evidence so given used to incriminate that witness in any other proceedings, except in a prosecution for perjury or for the giving of contradictory evidence. F) A party or witness in any proceedings who does not understand or speak the language in which the proceedings are conducted or who is deaf has the right to the assistance of an interpreter. G) Courts - Trials and Innocent Until Proven Guilty - right to a fair trial and the right to be considered innocent unless proven guilty in the courts. And the right to government funded legal aid, should they be too poor to afford a Lawyer.
5. Equality Laws Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, colour, age or mental or physical disability. Nothing further is allowed to be read into equality rights.
6. Official Language Rights (1) Everyone has the right to use English or French in any debates and other proceedings of Parliament. (2) The statutes, records and journals of Parliament shall be printed and published in English and French and both language versions are equally authoritative. (3) Any member of the public in the House of Israel has the right to communicate with, and to receive available services from, any head or central office of an institution of the Parliament or government in English or French, and has the same right with respect to any other office of any such institution where (a) there is a significant demand for communications with and services from that office in such language; or (b) due to the nature of the office, it is reasonable that communications with and services from that office be available in both English and French.
7. Enforcement (1) Anyone whose rights or freedoms, as guaranteed by this Charter, have been infringed or denied may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction to obtain such remedy as the court considers appropriate and just in the circumstances. (2) Where, in proceedings under subsection (1), a court concludes that evidence was obtained in a manner that infringed or denied any rights or freedoms guaranteed by this Charter, the evidence shall be excluded if it is established that, having regard to all the circumstances, the admission of it in the proceedings would bring the administration of justice into disrepute.
8. Something will be added here - not today though.
36. State Propaganda - right to be free from state propaganda and the right to be accurately informed of the state of the nation by the government.
37. Unborn - unborn children have the right to life, except if the life of the mother is put at risk by the pregnancy, and other caveats explained in this Constitution. Women are free to get abortions in foreign countries and face no penalties when returning, but Medicare won't pay for it.
38. Guns - No permit required for purchase, but buyers required to take a safe gun handling course. You just need to take the course before purchasing a gun.
The right to bear arms by the public is guaranteed with qualifications.
Weapons must not be concealed on ones person, carried in public while loaded, or used for purposes of intimidation. Parliament shall determine what is or is not a weapon. Youngsters under 16 are not allowed to use guns without someone 18 or over supervising them. Youngsters under 12 are not allowed to use guns at all, unless they live in remote places where hunting is a common practice, but they would still need supervision by someone over 18, until age 16.
No one under 18 is allowed to own a gun .22 caliber and bigger.
One must be 16 years old before one can get a hunting license, except for in remote areas, or in families who make part of their living through hunting. The age limit 12 in that case.
Automatic weapons illegal for the public to own. Semi-automatic weapons only allowed to hold a maximum of 8 shells. Parliament shall determine the rules in this area of automatic and semi-automatic guns.
Knives not allowed to be carried about in public, except when hunting, or for purpose of work, or the small inoffensive pocket knife variety. The ceremonial Sikh kirpan is permitted in public as long as it is small and non-threatening. Parliament shall make other rules and regulations necessary in this area. Naturally we aren't talking about knives at meals or in the kitchen.
An armed public is a safer more secure public. Crooks are less likely to break into homes, if they realize someone is likely to plug them between the eyes with a piece of lead.
Guns are not toys and should be kept away from children - they are not play things.
In urban areas guns are not needed in most cases. In rural areas they are often essential to control animal pests, or for hunting. In urban areas simply carrying a gun about in public would usually be regarded as intimidating
A disarmed public is vulnerable and easily controlled and intimidated by government. The government of the House of Israel has nothing to fear from an armed public, unless arms are used to commit crimes, civil unrest, or used for rebellion, or cared for and handled in a negligent manner.
People are encouraged to use guns responsibly.
40. Right to begin collecting the state run old age pension starting at age 65. Age of eligibility gradually phased in from the current age 65 eligibility to age 70 - this would not be done suddenly, but slowly. After these changes are gradually implemented people will still have the right to begin collecting the state run old age pension, but starting at age 70. Parliament shall make other rules pertinent to the situation.
