“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep AND BEAR arms, shall not be infringed.”
It ain’t rocket surgery! In fact, it’s so easy to understand that even a caveman or lefty can do it. If s/he wants peace. Molon labe.
Haven’t you got the memo? We can no longer trust the Supreme Court.
What I want to see is the SCOTUS affirm the right of states to regulate *intrastate* commerce in firearms. That is, since FDR the courts have expanded the Interstate Commerce Clause to include *intrastate* commerce, and this needs to end.
Clarence Thomas laid the groundwork for this by reaffirming the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the 14th Amendment, in McDonald v. Chicago, which asserts that if a state oppresses the civil rights of its citizens, the federal government can intervene to stop the state from doing that.
That is, he did one side of the equation, that states cannot oppress their citizens 2nd Amendment rights. But now, the SCOTUS needs to establish the flip side to this argument, that if guns and ammunition are produced in a state, *not* for export to other states, it should be free of federal regulation.
And if the SCOTUS does this, the ramifications are gigantic, because the vast amount of power the feds inflict on the states and the people is on *intrastate* commerce. If they can no longer do this, a lot of what the federal government is doing right now goes right out the window.
Though it would take decades to do so.
I do not think Cuomonista will dare show his head anywhere outside of Albany and NY City.
Perhaps we’ll now find out what the SCOTUS meant by “reasonable” restrictions a year or two ago.
Better stay away from obama’s courts.It will end up like obamacare did.
