    well-regulated part too, since it now means any jackass who say he feels threatened can stand his ground against an unarmed teenager and blow him away just for looking different.

    Just doing my part to piss off right wing nuts, one smart ass comment at a time.

      Scalia is too blind to operate a trigger lock, and therefore DC cannot require trigger locks. So...in what sense can Scalia be a member of a well-regulated militia, do such militias now seek out blind members? Is this the same sort of "well-regulated" that led Cheney to shoot his hunting partner in the face because he shot upward at birds whose wings had been clipped so they couldn't fly anyway?

      ("penumbra" was a joke at the right-wing objection to Roe v Wade...)

        could be reasonably inferred. In Scaly Scalia's interpretation of the 2nd Amendment, he simply ignores the first and controlling part of the phrase and makes a decision that contradicts vast numbers of precedents.

        •  Substantive Due Process (0+ / 0-)

          Other decisions inferred the right to privacy from a substantive due process interpretation of the 14th amendment, which makes more sense to me. But even ignoring that, I think its fun to throw R/W bullshit back at the right-wing.

          Hunter's riff on Scalia just phoning it in made a lot of sense to me.

        •  What about "prefatory" and "operative" don't ... (0+ / 0-)

          ... you understand? Words mean what Tony Scalia says they mean.

          The divination of "original intent" is given to Justices like Scalia and Thomas and removed from others.

          2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!

            about his rulings. But, he is earning a reputation as the most inconsistent of the Supremes.
