It is the epitome of arrogance to call a Supreme Court Justice, a man who's spent his entire life studying the law, "Constitutionally retarded." Besides we all know the retarded one is Scalia, not BreyerMadison "was worried about opponents who would think Congress would call up state militias and nationalize them. 'That can't happen,' said Madison," said Breyer, adding that historians characterize Madison's priority as, "I've got to get this document ratified."
Therefore, Madison included the Second Amendment to appease the states, Breyer said.
"If you're interested in history, and in this one history was important, then I think you do have to pay attention to the story," Breyer said. "If that was his motive historically, the dissenters were right. And I think more of the historians were with us."
That being the case, and particularly since the Founding Fathers did not foresee how modern day would change individual behavior, government bodies can impose regulations on guns, Breyer concluded.
What's your opinion? Aside from the fascinating epithet used by FWM, does the description of Breyer amount to "rewriting history?"
