They are breaking the law. It is best they are hung for breaking the law of the land. The constitution is the law and the supreme court is to uphold it. If they fail in their duties they are to be summarily executed.
LOL! Nothing like broadcasting that you're an extremist.

Justice Scalia in Heller:

Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. From Blackstone through the 19th-century cases, commentators and courts routinely explained that the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.

Nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms

Fortunately, the Supreme Court doesn't agree with YOU. And has ruled as such TWICE in the last five years.

Right. So as long as I don't carry into any "sensitive places" such as schools and govt buildings, and I follow the law when buying commercially, I am good to go.

Oh....before I forget, please point out the part of the 2nd-Amendment where the federal govt has the power to infringe on my right to protect myself with an effective weapon. I'm pretty sure is says that my right to do such "shall NOT be infringed". Just because someone is a supreme court justice, that doesn't mean they CAN'T make a mistake.

You said the SCOTUS doesn't agree with me. But they do - as I just showed you.

So what was your point again?

Wow! You really have an overactive imagination. Justice Scalia is NOT infallible nor does his comment "agree" with your leftist attempts to disarm the American people. As a matter of fact the court ruled AGAINST you gun-grabbers in affirming that the right to keep and bear arms is an INDIVIDUAL right separate and distinct from any membership in an organized militia effectively slamming the door on that particular assault you've made on the 2nd amendment. Drop back five yards and punt ‘cause you’re not going to get anywhere near the end zone.

Existing laws do not prevent you from exercising that right.

But you're going off track here. I was talking to the poster from Huston who claims that all existing laws are a violation of the Constitution, and that's simply false. He claims that judges who have upheld those laws should be executed, and that's simply nuts.

Are those your claims too? Do you claim that existing gun laws are unconstitutional? Do you claim that ANY gun law is unconstitutional?

I don't think you do, but here you are defending those whackadoo claims. Why? Are you really so obsessed with attacking me that you'll take the side of an unhinged extremist?

I agree with that statement and have never proposed anything here in conflict with that principle.

So where are your bullshit criticisms of me coming from except from your fevered imagination?

No, when you spent half a day avoiding answering why you assume I'm black - THAT was dodging and deflecting.

What I'm doing is directly responding to another poster and trying to keep you on topic.

But you'd rather play games than engage in honest, adult debate. That's fine. I understand. When your position has been proven to be intellectually and morally bankrupt, those are the games you have to play.

Run along now, child. Your finger paints are getting dry. LOL!

Weird that you find being in agreement with the US Constitution and the Supreme Court's interpretation of it a "problem."

But that's typical for you gunners (and conservatives generally)- claiming to revere the Constitution when in reality your extremist ideology takes precedence over it.
