To understand the intrusiveness of many of these gun laws, I tell people to substitute the word "knife" for "firearm" or "gun" and then consider how oppressive the law is. Imagine registering all of your steak and carving knives, taking courses to show you know how to use them, etc.

These laws and the politicians who enact them must go.

According to the 2 Amendment:’,the right of people to keep and bear Arms, shall NOT be infringed.’ I should be able the keep a fully loaded tank.

I think that the conservative justices on the court need to understand that they are they ONLY thing that can prevent a breakup of the United States, and that they need to be a bit more aggressive in their rulings. In particular, they need to REDEFINE THE COMMERCE CLAUSE to exactly what it means...which pretty much would get the feds out of just about everything unrelated to national security and running the court system. (i.e., you want Social Security, fine, have Sacramento, or Austin, set up a plan...same for EVERYTHING else)

Once our 5-4 majority on the court is eliminated, we’ll be lucky to survive 10 years as a unified country...given what the Dems have done, are doing, and will do. There is no way that the states will stand for it. It will not be pretty - but that seems to be their goal (I guess).

“Denniston A federal judge in Washington, applying the Supreme Courts 2008 decision creating a constitutional right to have a gun”

Wow, this on a SCOTUS blog? Unreal. Heller didn’t create the right. The Constitution and 2nd Amendment didn’t even create the right. They merely recognized the God-given right!

They still don't want to comply. I don't think that they are too stupid to understand that the court interpreted the low and not made it.

Urbina’s wrong-headed and moronic decision will be overturned on appeal. Like many another Liberal fool, he’s simply attempting to defend the indefensible.

Why can’t SCOTUS come up with a tamper proof decision for a change? RKBA IS A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT!

The laws are better than what DC had. But like California, still have a lot to be desired and interpreted.

My thought is that a single shooter may provide me some defense, but what if 10 bad people are coming at me and I only have a single shot or six shooter? Them my right to personal protection is diminished to less than full capacity.

It’s obvious from this article that Judge Urbina is a leftist TWIT!

Tell’em to pound sand.

I believe this falls directly in line with what I said after reading Heller. Basically that the 2nd amendment is a right recognised by the Constitution, but it doesn’t really mean anything because the government can do whatever the hell it likes. We’ll see if the supreme court will slap them down again, orif the Consitution actually means anything.

Apparently they have not gotten the idea...

And there are not enough people in D.C. to call their bluff (BS)...

It is apparent as well, that a Supreme Court ruling falls on deaf ears in D.C.

So the peoples voice in unheard, The inalienable, moral, and Constitutional right to keep and bear arms is apparently not recognized by a “faction” of people who do not respect, nor is it fully understood by those that should understand it, and therefore leave it alone...

Seems to me it needs to now be explained in a more direct manner, now that the voice of the people is being ignored...
