Skip to comments.KOPEL: Sotomayor targets guns now
Posted on 06/29/2010 5:43:51 PM PDT by OldDeckHand
Perhaps the most startling aspect of the Supreme Court opinions in McDonald v. Chicago was the dissenters' assault on District of Columbia v. Heller. Not only did Justice Stephen G. Breyer vote against extending the Second Amendment to state and local governments, he also argued forcefully and at length for overturning Heller and, therefore, for turning the Second Amendment into a practical nullity. Ominously, Justice Sonia Sotomayor joined the Breyer dissent - contradicting what she told the U.S. Senate and the American people last summer.
Regarding the key issue in McDonald - whether the 14th Amendment makes the Second Amendment enforceable against state and local governments - Justice Sotomayor resolutely refused to tell the senators how she might vote. So in voting against incorporating the Second Amendment, Justice Sotomayor was not inconsistent with what she had told the Senate. But regarding Heller, her actions as a justice broke her promises from last summer.

Say it ain't so - the wise latina LIED?
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Perhaps the liberal idiots that are playing lovey-dovey with “empty suit” Kagan will notice this and get a clue. But I doubt it. The mental disease of liberalism is pretty much chronic and incurable.
It seems they are going to keep on until they create a lot of undocumented guns.
You mean an obama flunkie lied? Who would have ever guessed? < /sarcasm>
are the nominees under oath?
are the nominees under oath?
There is no reason to hold hearings. No democrat will ever tell the truth under oath, and no Democrat will ever follow up on one who lies.
Kagan would swear on her Momma’s grave that she kisses a 44 Magnum revolver every night, if in return she can get on the Court and make up law for the next 40 years.
ANY Republican who doesn’t oppose her by every mean possible is unacceptable. Sadly, Kagan will get on the court and will try to ban guns for as long as she lives. And Christians. And babies. And freedom.
Wait until the GOP girlymen in the Senate send Barry’s latest pig up to the U.S. Pig Farm. The whole Bill of Rights is going to be toast.
Why does it matter that she lied. Sen Alexander of Tn knew she had 2nd Admendment issues. He endorsed and voted for her.RINO
Does the GOP have the nerve to challange them when they lie? I'm pretty sure they don't.
Now more than ever it should be apparent to everyone that liberals have very fluid, ever-morphing ethics. O’Reilly was just commenting on how the Rolling Stone reporter, Hastings, supposedly promised McChrystal that all comments would be “off the record” and then published every last word.
Liberals find it perfectly acceptable to flat out lie if they think the end justifies that mean. They have that in common with a certain religion that has a teaching that makes it A-OK to lie to infidels if it serves Allah (I won’t mention them for fear of Oh-Fending anyone, don’t want that, no sir-—you’ll just have to guess).
Yes, but unfortunately perjury (18 USC § 1001, Making a false statement, in this case) isn't a "forward-looking" offense. IOW, you're affirming under oath that the answers you're giving then are correct and truthful. She always has the "I changed my mind" defense.
Someone would need to find some evidence that she was being deceitful at the time of her testimony, and that's not likely.
Congress, OTOH, could still impeach her ass, although no one would dare, unfortunately.
“contradicting what she told the U.S. Senate and the American people last summer. “
Was it Marx who said the end justifies the means? Or was it Engels? Lenin? Stalin? Khrushchev? Alinsky? Clinton? Dohrn? Obama?
IIRC, he's not a staunch second amendment fellow, himself. Talks a good game, and talks, and talks and talks.
They can do whatever ,But how are the Rats going to enforce it??
What I find most surprising about this is the number of people who seem to be surprised...
She’s a libtard. She will push the progressive agenda to the limits of her notion of the law. And, if she can’t see the logic, she’ll make it up.
It’s time to take back the country.
He! It will take guns to do that. You know that, right?
