If these foolish politicians and judges out there keep this baloney up, they may well find out the hard way that the Second Amendment is an individual right. Depends on how much the sheep can take.

Unfortunately most people won't feel the heat until it's too late.

Careful Russ, we are civilized politically correct humans now. Such thoughts are not possible no matter how much they need to be thought of and carried out.

The idea that we have to be armed to fend off another Warsaw Ghetto uprising is completely contorted. :rolleyes: Yeah. The jews should have picketed...

I'd say the author of that statement has some genuine ugliness in his heart or a profound ignorance of history: the Warsaw Ghetto uprising was started by a handful of armed Jews, and was put down by heavily armed Nazi Germans.

Which side is he on?

... "individual policy preferences dressed up as a legal opinion" have no legal basis ...

Well, so what? But let's get to the nubbini of this guys real problem ... it's okay for Liberal Socialists to legislate from the bench, but not a Second Amendment advocate? Since when did advocacy of the Constitution become political advocacy? Oh, that's right, when Constitutionalists on the bench stand against those that try to legislate the Constitution down from the bench. THAT'S political advocacy. I understand now.

Well, no. I don't.

"The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed — where the government refuses to stand for re-election and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees," wrote Judge Kozinski, a native of Romania appointed by President Reagan."However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once," he wrote.


That is probably the best way I have ever heard it explained.

Kinda makes you wonder what history would have been if the rest of the european Jewish community had the same kinda sand.

If each Jew that ended up in an oven had taken down a single Nazi before he went they would have made short work of WWII. Anyone ever run the numbers Holocaust Victims vs. Germans Under Arms?
