Justice Thomas Asks: Why Are Second Amendment Rights So Easily Taken Away?
Submitted by: Anonymous

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is known for his silence during oral arguments. He has explained that he doesn’t think he learns much about a case that hasn’t already been covered in the briefs for the contending parties plus the numerous amicus briefs that explore many more aspects of the case. He prefers to listen and allow the lawyers to argue without further interruption.

Justice Thomas had not asked a question during oral arguments since 2006 when, during the arguments in Voisine v. United States on February 29, he posed a question to the government’s counsel, Assistant to the Solicitor General Ilana Eisenstein.

Guns are dangerous, and right now the United States is tearing itself apart trying to figure out how to think about these deadly weapons, one side viewing them as rightfully-owned tools and toys, and the other seeking to eradicate them entirely. Colorado artist Ravi Zupa finds something of a middle ground in a new show, Strike Everywhere, at Black Book Gallery in Denver, that feautures[sic] paintings, tarot-like illustrations, custom matchboxes, and an alluring set of sculptural firearms called made from deconstructed typewriters.
 

SC: Concealed Carry Law Fails In South Carolina

A state Senate subcommittee voted Thursday against approving a bill that would allow anyone who can legally own a gun to carry it concealed without a permit. Sen. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, was the only senator to vote for the bill.

“The Second Amendment’s very clear,” he says. “It says the right to bear arms shall not be infringed and putting a price on a permit that you have to have in order to carry a weapon to defend yourself is an infringement. And several other states have passed this. West Virginia just recently passed this. Arizona.”

Ordinarily, we do not respond to quasi-journalistic electronic emanations from The Trace, which, as we have previously noted, is the wholly owned propaganda megaphone of the Michael Bloomberg funded anti-gun politburo of organizations. Be assured, we do not plan to make this a regular practice.

However, after we finally stopped laughing at the headline and the prose that followed, we decided that a response was warranted to “The Myth of the Rise in Female Gun Ownership.” Here’s why. It is a staple of gun control politics to work to diminish both the size and the ever increasing diversity of the firearm-owning American citizenry. The Trace provides just the latest example.
 

MN: Court hints originalism may be doomed

My answer to that is simply to ask what test the Massachusetts court was supposed to use? As written, Heller would seem to call for some kind of an originalist analysis of whether a stun gun is comparable to weapons “in common use at the time” of the amendment.

Ed.: Reading Heller to conclude it only protects arms in common use in 1789 is about as idiotic as it gets, especially given that the central holding was that the Second Amendment applies to guns that didn't exist in 1789.

World history is filled with the stories of how great empires have risen, and then collapsed when they grew soft, decadent and weak.

The self-neutered citizens of those nations have surrendered their autonomy and their liberties to “coexist” in nanny states, and have forfeited their capability and will for self-defense.

Europe has grow soft, decadent, and weak.

Would-be leaders such as Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and their radical gun control-obsessed allies would like to gut the right to bear arms here, rendering us similarly defenseless against the barbarian hordes that always threaten civil societies.
 

PA: Pennsylvania Cities Invoke The Law To Flout The Law

If you want to see how anti-gun politicians make a mockery of the law, look at Pennsylvania.

What started out simple enough, Pennsylvania’s Constitution was the first to recognize the right to bear arms and the right to self-defense, turned into a patchwork of countless sets of laws in different Pennsylvania cities.

And when the legislature first passed a pre-emption law in 1974 to eliminate the mishmash of local gun control ordinances by requiring firearms laws to be no stricter than state law—big-city politicians simply decided not to obey that legislative mandate.

The Tennessee legislature is discussing a slew of gun bills that could expand where a person can carry a gun and who can carry one.

The legislature already shot down one bill that would have punished Tennesseans for leaving a loaded gun in a place accessible to children.

On a 7-2 party-line vote, the House Civil Justice Committee voted down a bill named MaKayla’s Law, named after an eight-year-old girl from Jefferson County who was fatally shot by an 11-year-old boy after she refused to let him play with her puppy.

Last October, the Joint Committee on the Judiciary held a hearing to discuss House Bill 1275, legislation to ban the intrastate trade in legal ivory and ivory products. Nearly 100 individuals ranging from antique dealers, firearm collectors and musicians attended the hearing to voice their opposition to this measure. However, now there are closed door discussions taking place to amend this legislation with no public input and the Committee reporting date for the legislation has been extended to Monday, May 2, 2016.
 

FL: State Supreme Court Could Decide Future of Open Carry

Controversial gun bills dominated the early part of legislative session but ultimately fizzled out for 2016. As Matt Galka tells us, the courts could end up deciding if Florida reinstates open carry.

Dale Norman was arrested and charged in Fort Pierce, Florida in 2012. He was openly carrying his gun in a holster. He had a concealed carry permit but was violating it under state law…he was hit with a misdemeanor and a 300 dollar fine.

Norman and gun rights group Florida Carry have been appealing the decision ever since. Now it will be in the hands of the state’s high court.

The Florida Supreme Court will hear the case in June.

According to WTVF, Republicans backed the bill because they believe it will keep students safer while at school. Democrats disagreed and even called the move "stupid."

The latest spike in License to Carry gun applications is expected to take Texas past a significant milestone.

CHL Licensed Instructor Michael Cargill owns Central Texas Gun Works.

He says the 140 percent jump in applications from December 2015 through February is caused by a combination of fears of terrorism brought on by the shootings in San Bernardino and President Obama’s proposed gun control laws.

California’s law enforcement officers and prosecutors responsible for fighting criminals and terrorists need more tools to fight crime. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s new ballot initiative gives us less.

Newsom is bypassing the legislative system and turning the ISIS-inspired attack in San Bernardino into his latest political scheme. His new proposal will restrict law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves.

I hate press releases that make me think, and this one from Daniel Defense has me thinking about changing out my primary home defense caliber from .223 Remington to 300BLK to take advantage of their new 220-grain sub-sonic defensive load which introduces their “First Choice” ammo brand.

Those of you out there who treasure freedom and rights and the U.S. Constitution, listen up.

President Barack Obama has selected Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Garland is a liberal anti-gun court of appeals judge that would destroy the Second Amendment.

If you enjoy the legal use of firearms for self and family protection, hunting, gun range target shooting and other shooting sports and just the lawful possession of a firearm, this man is dangerous, a Washington, D.C., East Coast anti-gun liberal.

Everybody knows that Hillary Clinton has been beating up on Bernie Sanders but good over gun control, and Bernie has stubbornly continued to insist that we need a law, not a judge or jury, to decide if gun manufacturers are liable for the damage their products cause. However, an even more depressing reality hit home this week when Chris Hayes asked Bernie Sanders if he believes that the Second Amendment confers an individual right to gun ownership:
