Would he vote against states being allowed to ban machine guns? Thats what I'd like to know. I think we may have a 'libertarian' here, not a conservative. I say that from reading about other opinions he's had on cases, specifically 1st Amend cases. Its way too early to know anything for sure though; if we've learned anything from the Miers nomination its that. So far though, as a libertarian, I like this pick

And aren't the states prohibited by another amendment from banning things congress is banned from like freedom of religion and free speech --needing search warrants etc etc

Any true conservative IS a libertarian.

Warning! Warning! Twisted logic making the rounds

That is not an issue before the court in this case. That's the same mistake the Brady folks are making in assuming that he wants to put a machine gun in the hands of every crook. He is doing the job, as laid down in the constitution, of arbitrating based on the law and the constitution, as argued, not substituting his own likes and dislikes.
That is, by definition, what a conservative judge does.
Oh, and I prefer the original Richard Matheson story, I Am Legend to the Heston remake, but Omega Man is still one of my favorite movies. Good handle.
