Heller also explains that "shall not be infringed" doesn't mean that gun ownership and use can't be regulated, doesn't it?
Actually it ruled that the gun in question could be owned. And was not required to be disassembled or locked while in the home. They can regulate, but such regulations are subject to strict scrutiny.

The other suggestion I would have is to get off Topix a few hours a day, and READ something vaguely related to the subjects you cannot stop yourself from opining upon.

I'm glad you acknowledge that the senate was being opened and close specifically stop Obama from making recess appointments and that he not only ignored the reality life presented him, but also the constitution as well as the separation of powers inherent with it and made unconstitutional appointments to government posts.
Whether you think congress or the republicans should have done something more or different is beside the point and does not make what happened legitimate or constitutional.
No--I would say both sides were playing slick and it was pretty much a coin toss which way the Supremes would find.

With that said, Obama's purpose was to keep the government running. Can't say the same for the folks who had dedicated themselves to an ongoing policy of non-cooperation.

I did. Did you? The word militia was conveniently left out of their argument as well.
As it is not part of the operative clause, it is irrelevant. Read Heller... again.

"The Second Amendment is naturally divided into two parts: its prefatory clause and its operative clause. The former does not limit the latter grammatically, but rather announces a purpose."

Let's see exactly which party "has dedicated themselves to an ongoing policy of non-cooperation," shall we?

FACT: In the 108th Congress (GWB), 10 of the President's 34 appellate nominees were filibustered — the lowest confirmation rate since FDR.

FACT: Clinton’s judicial nominees were NOT FILIBUSTERED and never before (until GWB) had a judicial nominee with clear majority support been denied an up or down vote in the Senate by a filibuster.

"[Harry] Reid and company have used the Senate filibuster rule to permanently deny votes to nominees with clear majority support. That’s never been done before." (David Reinhard, op-ed, "Judge Not Lest Ye Be … Filibustered," The Oregonian, 3/17/05)

"President Clinton has gotten 129 federal judges confirmed by the Senate, more than any previous president during the first two years in office… 101 of his 129 judges were confirmed in 1994. That was the highest one-year total since Jimmy Carter won approval of 135 in 1979." (Michael J. Sniffen, "Clinton Outdoes Predecessors In Filing Judicial Vacancies," The Associated Press, 10/12/94)

When asked how many hours were necessary to debate the nomination of Priscilla Owen, Sen. Harry Reid answered, "There is not a number in the universe that would be sufficient." (Sen. Harry Reid, Congressional Record, 4/8/03, p. S4949)

By September 2004, the Senate had spent more than 150 hours debating judicial nominations -- more than any previous Congress.(U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee, "The Assault on Judicial Nominations in the 108th Congress," 9/28/04)

The Senate had 28 months (that's 2 yrs, 4 mos!) to debate the nomination of Miguel Estrada before it was withdrawn. "After remaining in limbo for 28 months while Democrats filibustered to block his approval, Estrada...withdrew his name in September 2003." (Tim O’Brien, "Hispanic Lawyers Line Up Behind Nominee for AG," The Legal Intelligencer, 11/16/04)

And that's only with respect to judicial nominees.
Would you like to discuss the process by which Obamacare became law?

Obama's purpose was to stack the deck with hand picked appointments he could control so he could further his agenda.

As far as SCOTUS, after their cowardly decision on Obamacare, I doubt they even accept to hear this, and if they do, it will be drug out so long that we will yet one more liberal jurist. Sad that I feel that way about the premiere court in the country. I used to believe justice existed.

All presidential appointments are "hand picked", nominating commissions don't exist at that level.

Thumbing its nose at the federal courts, which ruled yesterday that President Obama’s "recess" appointments to the National Labor Relations Board last year were unconstitutional (because they were appointed during a non-existent "recess"), the Obama Administration has declared that it will not remedy constitutional violations identified by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in Noel Canning v. NLRB.
Instead, it will continue to defend 200 other NLRB decisions issued by the invalidly appointed NLRB members as if those decisions were valid. It also will disregard the ruling’s binding ramifications for another appointment President Obama made the same day he appointed the NLRB members, which is invalid for the same reason — the “recess” appointment of Richard Cordray to be Director of a powerful agency located in Washington, D.C., the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
The D.C. Circuit ruled that there was no “recess” on that particular day for purposes of the Constitution’s Recess Appointments Clause, so Cordray’s appointment was constitutionally invalid, just as the NLRB appointments made on that same day were invalid.(Cordray’s “recess” appointment during a non-existent recess is one of the constitutional violations cited in State National Bank of Big Spring v. Geithner, another court case pending in Washington, D.C. That case also challenges provisions of the law that created the CFPB, the Dodd-Frank Act, which Obama signed into law in 2010)....
I wonder if the Iraqis still have that rope they used on the other Hussein.

<quoted text> Columbus Dispatch today
Writing for the court, Judge David Sentelle concluded that the three labor board appointments were "invalid from their inception " because the Senate was "technically " in session from December 2011 through January 2012.
Even though most senators had returned home, the Senate was gaveled in and out "every few days as part of a tactic that created "pro forma " sessions.
In short, the GOP was being obstructionist with this "pro forma " tactic they devised just for the Obama WH to block ALL of his appointments. No different than a ball game coach changing some rules in the middle of a game when his team is losing.
The Senate did not violate the constitution...

Sorry, this has to be considered in the full context. Congress was not meaningfully in session. The Repubs went home and called in in order to prevent technically being out of session. And they did this in order to prevent Obama from making recess appointments. And Obama was making recess appointments because Congress in its state of dysfunction would/could not approve any appointments made while they were in session.
Now, you can spin any way you want, but it looks to me like there's an abundance of blame all the way around. Tracking all the way back to the reality that these are the people we elected and sent to Washington.
Time to grow up.
Were you complaining when the Democrats invented and used the same tactic against Bush?

Didn't think so, hypocrite.

<quoted text>
Heller did not deal with 2nd Amendment rights related to the militia whatsoever. It involved a DC statute restricting the individual right to own a handgun.
One of the most basic premises for interpreting judicial opinions is that any discussion of background information or law unrelated to the factual circumstances before the court, or conclusions of law unnecessary to determine the issues before the court, are "dicta".
The holding in Heller is that there is an individual right to keep firearms, specifically handguns, for self defense, and that the DC statute impermissibly infringed upon that right.
It had absolutely nothing to do with militias.
woof
The petitioners tried to CLAIM that the Second Amendment protects only the right to possess and carry a firearm in connection with militia service. They were "shot down".
