    I can't back it up but I heard on the radio this am that sotomayor said that only the leos and swoldiers should have guns.She didn't believe the 2nd was refering to ordinary people.Bad times may be ahead.sj:332:

    link no workie....
    Interesting article, however, despite her comments otherwise, the Supreme Court does not influence or make policy. Not to mention they would have to overturn themselves on Heller, which ruled that the 2nd Ammendmant is an individual right, not to be regulated by State or Federal law, the problem we face is that this decision did not state what "arms" are......

    TBH, I don't think it really matters. We are 2-3% unemployment rate away from serious civil unrest and revolution...

    Truth. It's funny how people always set a point somewhere off in the distance that is going to end the world. Nothing against the guy in post #5 but society is way more complicated than that.

    I'm floored by the push (that Sotomayor supports) to exempt states from the requirements of the 2nd Amendment, on the grounds that it is a FEDERAL requirement, but not a state requirement. Wait a minute! There was this war... a CIVIL war, I believe. And there was this Constitutional Amendment that did something... relevant. Oh, that's right. It abolished SLAVERY! That 13th Amendment Abolished Slavery and superseded states rights. Hmmm... so if a Constitutional Amendment, such as the 2nd Amendment, no longer pertains to the states, what about all of those others? Will some states choose to revive slavery? Will that pesky Freedom of Speech amendment get tossed by a few states? How about our right to not incriminate ourselves? I wonder which states will choose to ignore that one? Search and seizure, due process, etc... all on the table now. Thanks, Sonya! That's the CHANGE we've been waiting for.


    Freakin' IDIOTS!!!!!
