Heller Hero Alan Gura Defends a Raging Bitch

“The lawyer who advanced Second Amendment gun rights in his U.S. Supreme Court debut is now focusing his attention on beer and the First Amendment,” the ABA Journal reports. “A federal lawsuit filed by lawyer Alan Gura claims Michigan liquor regulators violated the First Amendment when they refused a license for Raging Bitch beer, made by the Flying Dog Brewery.” Click here for the pdf. According to the suit, “Beer bottles should be regulated not by the expression of their labels, but by the character of their content.” Same goes for assault rifles—so use top shelf ammo! [Note to CUJO: the exclamation mark is ironic.]

    This is more politically correct than it looks – the “ammo” can also be poured or pissed out to keep the barrel cool – now THAT’s recycling!

    Ooooh, some of the Gura magic is coming to Michigan. Cool.

    Gura is above all a civil rights atorney. Speech is the first civil right. On the other hand, I ain’t drinking no “Raging Bitch” anything, although I think it might be a play on “Mad Dog.” Which is also something else that I won’t be consuming any time soon. And yeah, imbibing something nicknamed “Panther Piss” is also out of the question. Been there, done that. Make mine a fine chablis, please. Or a case of Greenies. Or a shooter of Ten High. Or a slug of Everclear. Because I gots class.

    I just wanna know where you found that picture.

    And for the record, I hear the drink of choice in the USMC is something made by combining Red Bull and Jägermeister. Or paint stripper. The effects would be largely the same.

    BTW, that beer is hella good. I love IPAs and that one probably takes the cake.

      It is good. My favorite is Arrogant Bastard Ale from the Stone Brewing Co.

    Good beer, great company, even better bittle labels. This isn’t their first tussle over 1st amendment issues. They caught a lot of flack for having ” good beer, no shit” on a label.

    Back in the 50’s and 60’s, Iron City Beer in Pittsburgh used to make a seasonal beer (Thanksgiving to Christmas/Hanukkah) called “Old Frothingslosh, the pale stale ale with the foam on the bottom!”. Their TV commercials were in sepia and from 1910 vintage movies, and were hysterically funny. They had contests for “Miss Frothingslosh”, and published an annual calendar showing the twelve top finishers in the “beauty contest”, but used “Fatima” on their cans. Miss Frothinslosh would be banned today as politically incorrect as she averaged about 300 lbs, and had a face that would stop a clock. Sadly, the real Miss Frothingslosh passed away in 2000.
