If Federal law trumps state laws over medical marijuana, then why doesn't it trump state laws over unconstitutional/illegal gun ban laws?
The anti Gun loby is going to keep trying till they ban guns.
They have just put another antigun idiot in the supreme Court, it is getting closer to taking all the guns outright.
The Coal companies used the same strategy with the UMWA contract, they kept arbitrating the same case over and over and loosing it every time,, but then a Pro Company Arbitrater would hear it and side with the company,"then" the case would go to the Arbitration Review board and they could make a final decision which was most of the time in the Favor of the company.
Thats what the anti Gunners are doing,, trying to take guns to get a state supremem ruling that the people have the right, or dont have the right, then it can go to teh supreme Court, and in the future with all the antiguners being picked for the court, we will soon loose the right altogether.
If it wasn't in the making the United States Supreme Court would simply refuse to hear it based on past ruleings, yet they are hearing every case,, It's comming in the future that our Guns are going to be history.
IMHO the NRA is helping sell us out, they keep takeing concessions left and right,.
I hope I'm wrong, but I think that what I'm typing in here is true..The Austrailians and the Ukrainians said for us to watch out, they took theirs so fast they didn't see it comming..

Unfortunately you are way too stupid to understand that the previous ruling,in a case involving a U.S. District, specifically did not address laws in the 50 states,so that needs to be done here.Just a technicality I'm sure.Keep crying about your irrational fears,bitch,we love it when crap like you are confused,persecuted and powerless. LOL.

It's definitely NOT because of the liberals! It's because of the fringe conservatives who are not smart enough to handle guns and are forming a criminal element in our country!

love me hate em
sometimes they are right on
The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution contains a border-related exception to unreasonable search and seizure laws, permitting searches at border checkpoints that wouldn't be permitted elsewhere. But federal statute 8 CFR 287.1 (a)(1-3) defines the border zone for enforcement purposes as encompassing an area within 100 miles of the actual border, with the possibility of extending it further under certain circumstances. This means that the US Border Patrol could conceivably set up random checkpoints asking travelers for a passport in places like Columbus, Ohio; Houston; or anywhere in the state of Florida. And, in fact, it appears that it has been doing exactly this.

here is the deal

If Miss Gulch (Ruth Bader Ginsburg) has her way, all guns except HERS will be banned!

She's the judge who decided that the city of New London CT could illegally seize private homes from owners and sell them to private developers (Kelo vs New London).

Miss Gulch, look out because a house might fall on you like it fell on your sister!

Chicago is already like the wild west or worse. Over a 16 month period over 500 students were shot! So this ban on handguns is only doing one thing and that is keeping law abiding people from protecting themselves from all these violent black psychopaths would already carry guns in Chicago. Lets at least level the playing field.

If you make Guns Illegal, the only people that will have guns will be murders and Thieves. Since they know that all the Law Abiding Citizens won't have guns, they'll have a Field day. I say make it EASIER to have guns. I want that Thief to think "I wonder if i should rob him. He Might be Packin'". Guns won't go away. there is NO WAY to Eliminate guns completely. You can't uninvent guns. The only way to have true safety in a world where guns exist, is to own a gun.

There are some Exceptions though:

-Mentally Insane citizens should not have Guns

-Those Convicted of a Felony should not have Guns

-Citizens under the age of 21 Should not have Guns

-Those that have not received gun safety training should not have guns.

Other than those rules, i don't see any problem with gun ownership.
