Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: Our high school wants to display the Ten Commandments but the local American Civil Liberties Union is now making a huge stink about it. What can we do?

: Have you considered just displaying six of the Ten Commandments?  (The Blaze, Judge suggests 10 Commandments be reduced to 6)

2) Question: Unbeknownst to me, my evil wife, with whom I am in a domestic dispute, concealed the hardware of a .40 caliber gun, a magazine loaded with two rounds of ammunition and a firing pin within a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal. The Mickey Mouse was in my carry-on baggage as I tried to board a flight and the TSA found it, along with the gun and everything else. Is this going to be a problem?

Answer: No, and in fact you won't even miss your flight. Just tell the TSA that you didn't know about the gun and that it is your wife's fault. They'll be cool with that and send you on your way. (CBS News, Family dispute behind big airport security scare?)

3) Question: Some guy just pulled a gun on me and demanded that I do the Michael Jackson "moonwalk" dance. I did not want to do the moonwalk but complied (on account of the gun and all). That has to be some crime, right? 

Answer: Yes, that sounds like assault. (The Associated Press, Idaho man accused of using gun to force 'moonwalk')
