Readers may wish to take note of this portion of the Rhode Island Constitution in which the damnable grammar of the Second Amendment (US) is employed:
Section 20. Freedom of press. -- The liberty of the press being essential to the security of freedom in a state, any person may publish sentiments on any subject, being responsible for the abuse of that liberty; and in all trials for libel, both civil and criminal, the truth, unless published from malicious motives, shall be sufficient defense to the person charged.
Somehow I don't think Rhode Island's protection of an individual's right to publish would face much scrutiny. Now, I'll let the ink dry.
