"I just basically want to know that if the next case involving privacy and personal freedom came up, what he believes," the Illinois Democrat claimed.
Asked, however, what he would do if Roberts "said he did not see a right to privacy in the Constitution," Durbin told MTP host Tim Russert: "I wouldn't vote for him. That would disqualify him in my mind."
Yo da man Senator! I concur. Wow am I glad you represent me.
If Roberts doesn't believe in MY RIGHT TO PRIVACY and PERSONAL FREEDOM to own and/or posses a fully functional sub machine gun, he should be disqualified!
Huh? What's that Dickie, oh, you didn't mean that pertained to firearms.
Oh, so you don't think a right that IS expressly written IN the Bill of Rights is really a right. Okay I see now .....
In all seriousness, the lack of Roberts' record on the 2nd Amendment does have me a tad concerned. If he's a gun owner and hunter like Scalia that's one thing, but if he's a gun owner and 'hunter' like Kerry - then WE have a big problem.
Boy are the Senators especially Turbin stupid. It would be unethical for Roberts to answer such a question. But, then since when have Dum/Lawyer/Senators been ethical.
