Constitution's provisions optional to progressives

"A recent letter writer argues that 'if the founders had known what today's handguns were capable of and the carnage they cause, they probably would have worded the Second Amendment to clearly restrict handguns to militias.'"

"The letter concludes, 'The Constitution should not be viewed as a stagnant, static set of rules that can't be modified as circumstances dictate.'"

"This is a clear statement of the progressive position that the Constitution should be viewed as a 'living' document and that restrictions on the power of government prevent it from meeting the country's needs. Beginning ... in the 1880s, the progressive approach has been to detach government from the inconvenient provisions of the Constitution." ...

"Nevada Senator Harry Reid claims to be a defender of the Second Amendment. Is that really the case? You decide. Here is a list of votes he has cast over the past twenty years in the U.S. Senate:" ...

"10. July 28, 2005—Voted for an amendment to require all handgun purchasers to pay an implicit 'gun tax' by requiring them to buy a trigger lock when they purchase their handgun, irrespective of need."

"11. March 2, 2004—Voted to outlaw the private sale of firearms at gun shows unless the buyer agrees to submit to an FBI background registration check. This legislative would have effectively eliminated gun shows because of stringent requirements placed on event sponsors." ...

"The second Amendment is needed more than ever! Oakland, California announced yesterday a list of crimes they simply can't get to if they lay off officers to balance the budget. The city says that each of the 776 police officers currently employed at OPD costs around $188,000 per year. The Oakland Police department say that in the face of force reductions due to budget limits, there is a whole list of crimes they just won't be able to respond to:" ...

"The National Rifle Association of America is being criticized in various quarters for its advertisement urging people to remind the U.S. Senate that the last time it confirmed a Barack Obama nominee to the Supreme Court, that candidate said the she understood how important the Second Amendment is, and that it protected an individual right."

"The NRA's advertisement raising red flags about nominee Elena Kagan is hardly worth watching…after the first dozen times, or so. It is one of two razor-edged political advertisements currently airing, and available now on YouTube. The other concerns Washington State's senior Senator Patty Murray, now running for a fourth term. We will discuss that in a moment." ...

"Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan won't be getting Sen. John Thune's vote, but she's a decent bet to get Sen. Tim Johnson's approval."

"Thune, South Dakota's Republican senator, announced Wednesday what he's been suggesting for a while: He'll vote against President Obama's choice for the nation's highest court, citing Kagan's lack of judicial experience and her 'partisan political background.'"

"'While Ms. Kagan's background in academia is impressive, I have deep reservations about her ability to serve on the nation's highest court with impartiality,' Thune told reporters a day after meeting with the former dean of Harvard Law School." ...

"Consider the landmark 5-to-4 ruling in 2008 that the ambiguously worded Second Amendment protects against the federal government an individual right to bear arms ..."

Shortly thereafter one perpetrator dropped his wounded friend off at a hospital ..."

"FOR the 'bitter' Americans Barack Obama accused in 2008 of 'clinging' to their guns (and religion), this has been a sweet week. In June of that year five of the nine justices on the Supreme Court ruled in DC v Heller that the right to bear arms set out in the second amendment really did apply to individuals and not just to the 'well regulated militia' in the arguably ambiguous sentence that ends by saying 'the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.' Now, almost exactly two years later, and again by five votes to four, the court has ruled, in McDonald v Chicago, that this right must be acknowledged by state and local governments and not only by the federal one." ...

"Since the Supreme Court's decision to incorporate the Second Amendment in McDonald v. Chicago last month, there has been a legitimate fear that the decision will endanger sensible gun regulations – in particular laws forbidding those convicted of domestic violence from owning guns. But yesterday the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in United States v. Skoien that incorporation of the Second Amendment does not mean that regulations that keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers are unconstitutional."

"As the first test of sensible gun regulations after McDonald, Skoien is a significant victory for gun-control activists and women. ..." ...

"The Supreme Court's ruling on Chicago’s gun control law of June 28th severely restricts what states can do regarding gun control within their borders. True conservatives, like myself, are appalled. Not only does this narrow 5-4 decision infringe on states' rights, or what's left of them, it violates the conservative justices own claim that they read the constitution using the lens of the original intent of the Founders. The fact is the Second Amendment was added to the Constitution to strengthen the states' right to form a militia by empowering their citizens to bear arms under special circumstances. It was not written to give citizens the right to own guns in all circumstances." ...

"Charlie Crist and 'never wavered' are words that don't seem to naturally fit together these days ... Most famously, he abandoned the Republican party after pegging himself as a both a Jeb Bush and Ronald Reagan Republican throughout his political career."

"Yet Crist, who has been known to attribute his political flexibility to his desire to serve 'the people,' claims there is one issue where voters can trust him to never waffle."

"'Gov. Crist has never wavered in his support of the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms,' reads the Crist for U.S. Senate campaign website."

"Given Crist's serial elasticity, we wondered if this could be true. Does the ... Governor actually have steady convictions about, well, something?" ...

"It was somewhat alarming a few weeks ago to learn that the National Rifle Association had obtained a waiver from the operation of some congressional action concerning campaign finance reform. I thought little more about it until the word just came down that the NRA has endorsed U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., to maintain his seat."

"With the quid pro quo now revealed, the waiver obtained by the NRA is exposed as another dirty, rotten payoff, typical of the disgraced, immoral, illegal and senseless manner in which the current Democrat-controlled federal government buys votes. Shame on Wayne LaPierre, president of the NRA!" ...

"Special agent William Clark is charged with second degree murder for shooting his neighbor Marcus Sukow at their St. Thomas condo complex in 2008. Sukow's girlfriend had sought help from Clark during a domestic dispute, and Sukow was angry, inebriated and wielding a metal flashlight when Clark shot him. Local and federal authorities differ, however, on whether the shooting was justified." ...
