Robert A. Levy: Mukasey Should Declare Where He Stands on Second Amendment
Submitted by: none

"The White House would like to see Michael Mukasey confirmed as attorney general before the Senate's October recess. Until now, the focus has been on Mukasey's reading of the tradeoff between civil liberties and national security — involving, for example, the Patriot Act, warrantless surveillance and detainee policies. Those are indeed important inquiries. But there's another critical issue that triggers strong sentiment throughout the country on which a Mukasey Justice Department might play a key role. Mr. Mukasey, where do you stand on the right to keep and bear arms?"

"The last time the Supreme Court addressed the Second Amendment was United States v. Miller (1939). Regrettably, the court's less than crystalline opinion inspired opponents of private firearms ownership to argue that the right to bear arms does not belong to us as individuals ..." ...

"Okay, let's get this straight, right up front: global warming has been totally and thoroughly discredited as the shameless, heartless fraud that most of us knew it was from the very beginning. That's not really what this article is about, so if you haven't gotten the word, go to http://tinyurl.com/22u8uy -- it's a good place to start reading up." ...

"And above all, our guns."

"Yes, that's what I said, our guns. A lot of otherwise politically savvy gun owners have believed until now that we have no interest in all of that global warming malarky. They couldn't be more mistaken. The individual right to own and carry weapons is among its primary targets." ...

"A New York state criminal court judge, not unexpectedly, rejects the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in Parker v. District of Columbia, and rules that Rashawn Handsome has no 'a constitutional right to bear arms [that] protected his keeping three unlicensed handguns in his apartment' ..." ...

"Judge Gerstein’s opinion does note that, unlike the D.C. statute that was overturned, the New York statute does not purport to be a total ban, merely a (draconian) licensing and regulation scheme. That means that even if ... the Supreme Court were to take up and affirm the Parker decision, this New York law would probably be unaffected."

"Jason Clayworth's Oct. 23 article, 'Firearms Trigger Little Talk Despite Their Pull,' was right on point. The 2008 candidates have left the gun-control issue alone unless forced to comment."

"The problem with this is that the voters aren't going to know what controls may be implemented by the next president. Every pro-control politician states that they are pro Second Amendment and have no intentions of hamstringing the rights of hunters and sportsmen."

"That sounds good except that the Constitution doesn't mention hunters and sportsmen. A candidate would be able to institute laws that ban so called assault weapons without ever breaking a campaign promise to support the Second Amendment." ...

"House Bill 354, sponsored by Rep. Barbara Boyd, D-Cleveland Heights, and Sandra Williams, D-Cleveland, prohibits anyone under 21-years-old from possessing a firearm. Under the bill, if an adult or youth who does not meet the age requirement plans to handle a firearm, he or she must do so in the presence of someone 21 or over.
