Federal judge upholds Colorado gun laws, dismisses lawsuit
MSN ^ | June 27, 2014 | Reuters

Posted on 06/27/2014 1:20:23 AM PDT by Innovative

A federal judge upheld gun laws on Thursday introduced by Colorado in the wake of deadly shooting rampages there and in Connecticut, dismissing a lawsuit brought by sheriffs, gun shops, outfitters and shooting ranges.

The two laws, passed in 2013 by Colorado's Democratic-controlled legislature with scant Republican support, banned ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds and required background checks for all private gun sales and transfers.

After a two-week civil trial, U.S. District Chief Judge Marcia Krieger ruled the lawsuit lacked standing and said no evidence had been produced which showed limiting magazines to 15 rounds seriously diminished the ability to defend oneself.

It is always a toss-up for Federal Judges to rule on what the meaning of “...Shall Not Be Infringed” actually means.

“A Dubya appointee !”

I just looked it up myself.

I guess Bush has no way of knowing her real attitudes, as she served on a bankruptcy court before.

“Prior to her appointment in 2002, she served on the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado, and as its Chief Judge from 2000 to 2002.”

Drop her off out East Colfax some hot Saturday night without a cell phone, money, or ID and see how many rounds she’d want in her magazine...

The Bankruptcy Court appointment would’ve been Presidential, so that earlier position would’ve made her a Clintonista in 1994.

Not a presidential appointment, not even a presidential nomination. Bankruptcy judges are selected by judges already in the federal court system. 28 USC 152 - Appointment of bankruptcy judges.

As a group, judges are one of the most hostile toward the right to keep and bear arms, and judges (as a group) are also blatantly dishonest in rendering their decisions and opinions. But, even though they are as corrupt as the Mafia, they are also as powerful.

"After a two-week civil trial, U.S. District Chief Judge Marcia Krieger ruled the lawsuit lacked standing and said no evidence had been produced which showed limiting magazines to 15 rounds seriously diminished the ability to defend oneself."

Because it is RIGHTS of the Constitution we are discussing here, the intent has been distorted. It should be that "There is no evidence that proves that it is the 16th or greater bullet that poses the threat to innocent life." Therefore this limitation on magazine count is unproven, invalid and moot.

Really, what difference does it make who appointed her? All judges today are products of a corrupt education system.

Federal judges now act as Roman governors, overseeing the local kingdoms. They act as potentates of the emperor reigning in the locals to prevent them from straying to far away from the emperor’s agenda.

Thanks for the clarification on the selection method. You’re quite right about the judiciary, one reason why they need to be made far more accountable for their actions (and that there should be avenues to overturn their blatantly unconstitutional rulings when necessary).

The established system is supposed to do that, but congress if feckless. Massive, peaceful civil disobedience can work. See Ghandi. The vast majority of people keep order without being hemmed in by laws.

The decision is at the District Court level, the lowest level in the federal system. It can be appealed to a Circuit Court, but they are just as hostile to the right to keep and bear arms as the lower courts are, maybe moreso.

If one has to submit to a government interrogation to exercise their 2nd amendment right, what makes these nuts think the natural extension doesn’t include a speech and a religion implementation license?

Kreiger’s been on my list since 2013 along with the rest of the anti-2A congresscritters to vote out of office.

Anyone who wants the list, please let me know and I’ll put it on this thread.

This is a good thing, actually really good. Now the governor has to defend signing the bill into law.

Judges have ruled many despicable things constitutional before, yet many of those things are no longer legal. This is not the end.

We cannot depend on the judiciary to protect our rights. The only answer is defeating legislators who violate them.

“False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that it has no remedy for evils, except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are of such a nature. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
Cesare Beccaria On Crimes and Punishments
