    Is that these loons think that proposing legislation is treasonous.

    While proposing not.

      We've got tea-soaked legislators and governors proposing all sorts of ridiculous and blatantly unconstitutional crap on a daily basis. And they eventually end up in the circular filing bin. And, lo and behold, even if somehow this "treasonous" (quoted because they have no idea what treasonous means) bill became law if the SCOTUS rules in favor of it then it's Constitutional. The SCOTUS are the one and only group in this country that gets to declare something does or does not violate the Constitution. Apparently these clowns are afraid the Robert's court is too "activist-y" or something for their liking.

      What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

        Constitution so much... yet they obviously have never read it.  Hmmm... kind of like the fundamentalists who are so hardline on their Holy Book yet completely miss the major point of its lessons.

        that the Court would not be activist-y enough. An ACTIVIST Court strikes down legislation based on its own reading of the Constitution (oh! the horror of judges reading and interpreting the Constitution!). A not-so-activist Court defers to the more democratic branches of government, especially the legislature.

        So what these clowns are really afraid of is that Congress would actually pass a gun regulation law, and the Supreme Court would exercise judicial restraint and NOT strike it down as an affront to the 2nd Amendment.

        Consistency, hobgoblin, small minds.
