So according to this judge we can ignore federal law in other gun sane states that one day decide one can buy a machine gun over the counter?
After all if the 2nd Amendment doesn’t trump state law then shouldn’t state law take precedence over federal laws?
The wife later dismissed her complaint and the husband completed a pretrial intervention program, which spared him a criminal conviction on the weapons charges. But the judge moved forward with stripping him of gun ownership rights, finding that he assaulted his wife and committed a crime.
The decision acknowledged that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to possess a handgun for the purpose of self-defense. But according to the courts, the Constitution does not trump “states’ enforcement of their ‘longstanding
prohibitions’ on firearm possession,” and “like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited.”
The appellate decision faulted Vinogradsky for his “unwillingness to familiarize himself with our gun control laws.”
Another presidential also-ran, SENATOR TED CRUZ, HAS ENDORSED A DIFFERENT ROUTE TO A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION, THE VERSION SPONSORED BY THE BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT TASK FORCE. WHEN HE WAS CAMPAIGNING IN IOWA, CRUZ SAID THAT “WE NEED QUITE A FEW CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS,” REFERRING TO SOME OF THE SAME IDEAS AS THE CONVENTION OF STATES.
Some conservatives assume that a constitutional convention would propose only conservative ideas like a balanced budget. It never occurs to them that Bernie Sanders supporters would show up to demand constitutional amendments requiring the taxpayers to pay for free college and other free stuff for everyone.
Less than a year before his untimely death, the late, great Justice Antonin Scalia called it a “horrible idea” to call a convention for proposing constitutional amendments. “Once you get those people together, you never know what they’re going to do. You’ll get everything but the kitchen sink written into the Constitution.”
The unsolicited letter promoting the Convention of States concluded by asking me to contact my Missouri state legislators, even providing their names and telephone numbers at the state capitol. Fortunately, the appeal came too late; the legislature adjourned May 13 without passing the COS resolution, so that bad idea is dead for another year in Missouri and the legislators’ telephones will not be answered.
VDH says “spare me the outrage”, compares treatment of Obama, Trump.
More lies from the msm.
Couric can be heard in the interview asking activists from the [Virginia Citizens Defense League], “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”
The documentary then shows the activists sitting silently for nine awkward seconds, unable to provide an answer. It then cuts to the next scene.
However, raw audio of the interview between Katie Couric and the activists provided to the Washington Free Beacon shows the scene was deceptively edited. Instead of silence, Couric’s question is met immediately with answers from the activists.
Here’s an article that appeared in the San Diego Union-Tribune under the title “Is Clinton for Real?”
This op-ed is nonsense. According to David Brooks, Hillary’s problem is that she is totally focused on policy, and not showing anybody her softer side. The obvious implication it that, if only we knew what Hillary did for fun, we’d vote for her.
This theory is odd. One of the major criticism normal people have of our media is their focus on trivialities, such as hairstyle and color of a woman’s dress or pantsuit. Brooks apparently wants more of that, but I am not at all certain that the voters do.
My own theory is that Hillary has been putting forth her policies, and the voters know it. They are rejecting the severely flawed and counterproductive policies of the last eight years. They do not care what she does for fun.
