"NFL wide receiver Plaxico Burress just finished twenty months in prison for carrying a firearm. New York prosecutors said that the gun was unlicensed. The Constitution begs to differ."

"One might think that this injustice would spark the former Steeler and Giant to lay down $1,000 for a National Rifle Association lifetime membership. Instead, after losing the bulk of a $35 million contract, endorsement deals, and nearly two years of his life behind bars, Burress, perversely, has joined forces with the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence." ...

Second Amendment injustice

"In June 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment to the Constitution protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm 'and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.' Quoting the famous British jurist William Blackstone, the court held that 'the right of self-preservation' permits a citizen to 'repe[l] force by force' when 'the intervention of society in his behalf, may be too late to prevent an injury.' This grandiose language must ring awfully hollow to Orville Lee Wollard who, two years ago tomorrow was sentenced to two decades in a Florida prison for protecting his family with a firearm." ...

"What must not be allowed to be lost in the shuffle here--and the smart money is on 'the shuffle' being, much of mass media's wishes notwithstanding, quite significant--is that what is at stake here is vastly larger than 'merely' whether or not our own government deliberately facilitated the trafficking of firearms to known criminals who would use them to kill innocent citizens and loyal agents of law and order both in Mexico and the U.S. The enormity of even such an atrocity as that pales in comparison to the question of what would prompt the government to engage in such evil." ...
