True supporters of the Constitution should be appalled at the Heller-McDonald decisions for what it did to the Second Amendment. The even more amusing part is that Scalia has trashed everything that he claimed to believe in by putting his name to this piece of shit, although one can truly question what type of biased hack he is to have not recused himself from this decision. Better yet, one must question what he is doing as a Supreme Court Justice as his presence on the bench does nothing to dignify the institution.
One must decide the law based upon the law, not one’s personal biases.
Anyway, the fix is in and everybody got fucked: especially the Constitution.
What's your opinion? Don't you think there was too little said about Justice Scalia's gun bias. I remember some scant references to the fact that he'd had a personal interest in the case which went beyond judicial experience.
What about the question of "individual rights?" The pro gun folks always said that was the proper interpretation of the 2nd Amendment, but isn't it true that these were the first Supreme Court rulings about that? And given the skin-of-the-teeth victory, don't you think it could have easily gone the other way, and probably will in the future?
