Default We Interrupt This Report About The NRA And School Shootings To Report A School Shooti

We Interrupt This Report About The NRA And School Shootings To Report A School Shooting. Seriously.


Quote:
Today, the NRA and Vice President Joe Biden met to discuss the way forward on reasonable gun control measures in the wake of the school shooting at Sandy Hook. In the middle of a CNN broadcast reporting on the subject, they had to cut away from the vice president's press conference to report on an actual school shooting in Bakersfield, Calif. One victim is in critical condition, the other two are stable, and the perp is in custody. Are we allowed to talk about guns yet?

The candy ass can talk about guns all he wants. He also has my permission to shove his anti-gun agenda where the sun doesn't shine on his body.

To al you dummies out there, whoever you are - stop blaming the amount of firearms, and start enforcing the thousands of laws on the books already.

I love how they're reporting about every single one they can find just to make it look worse than it actually is. School shootings aren't occurring any more often than they ever have. In fact, the numbers have gone down over the years.

This is a legal process known as "nullification". It is being considered for Obamacare, marijuana laws as well as the protection of the 2d amendment rights.

nullification is my favorite thing right now, we have the feds getting out of control. Time to no longer play that game.

Default Antonin Scalia: There Are 'Undoubtedly' Limits To A Person's Right To Carry Guns

The rights Icon (or in keeping with the rights games) or Messiah seem to be at odds with those who don't understand the 2nd amendment


WASHINGTON -- Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Sunday that there are "undoubtedly" limits to a person's right to bear arms under the Second Amendment, but that future court cases will have to decide where to draw the line.

During an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," Scalia was asked whether lawmakers have the right to ban high-capacity gun magazines without violating a person's constitutional right to bear arms. The question comes less than two weeks after the Colorado shooting massacre that left 12 dead and dozens more injured -- and at a time when neither President Barack Obama nor Congress appear willing to touch the issue of gun control.

"We'll see," Scalia said, suggesting that future court cases will determine what limitations on modern-day weapons are permissible.

"Some undoubtedly are [permissible] because there were some that were acknowledged at the time" the Constitution was written, Scalia said. He cited a practice from that era known as "frighting," where people "carried around a really horrible weapon just to scare people, like a head axe or something. That was, I believe, a misdemeanor."

“So yes, there are some limitations that can be imposed," Scalia said. "What they are will depend on what the society understood were reasonable limitations at the time."

The conservative justice notably authored the Supreme Court's 2008 opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller, which ruled that the Second Amendment protects a person's right to bear arms and struck down a D.C. ban on handguns. The court also ruled, though, that "the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited."

Scalia pointed out Sunday that that the Second Amendment "obviously" doesn't apply to weapons that can't be hand-carried, and modern-day weapons like "hand-held rocket launchers that can bring down airplanes" weren't factored in at the time of the writing of the Constitution.

“My starting point and probably my ending point will be what limitations are within the understood limitations that the society had at the time,” he said. “They had some limitations on the nature of arms that could be borne. So we’ll see what those limitations are as applied to modern weapons.”

Ultimately, Scalia said, any new gun restrictions will have to be weighed "very carefully,"

I'm not too worried about Scalia.
