PreMortem: When a member of congress, or state legislature, says something like this so profoundly ignorant, they should be escorted out of the Capitol and forbidden from holding public office ever again.
Gergesa: Well he didn't say anything about rape. I guess that is an improvement of sorts.
ReverendJasen: Another one who should be repeatedly raped by the constitution until he's memorized it by anal osmosis.
Lenny_da_Hog: Albino Squid: Frank N Stein: Cool. I'm going to cite this article next time someone complains that just because the SC ruled in Hellers favor doesn't mean it's constitutional.Is DC flouting the ruling on the basis of well, that's just like, your opinion, man, or are they disagreeing with the conclusions reached therein but falling the guidance of the court as to the constitutionality of the ruling? Because what this moron is doing is a whole different ballgame from believing that the decision should have gone the other way.Typical exchange:"Let's pass a crazy restrictive law! Dead children! Hey, there's 20 dead kids, let's start looking at how to cut this down. Here's some ideas.""That would be unconstitutional THIS DESTROYS THE SECOND AMENDMENT!!!.""But 'MILITIA!' ...Not really...you can't shout 'fire' in a crowded theater either...""That's been ruled on by SCOTUS. You'd have to amend the constitution.""Nuh-uh! MILITIA! Erm. That's not actually how it works...""AS LONG AS THE SECOND AMENDMENT EXISTS WE CAN DO WHAT WE WANT!!!!""o.O"
what_now: DamnYankees: Eh, this isn't that dumb. I think there's a valid point to be made that the Supreme Court doesn't get to decide whether or not one thinks a given law is constitutional or not. It just makes it the law; it doesnt change your personal view of the matter.Seriously? "Area man passionate defender of what he thinks the constitution says" is satire"
Krymson Tyde: I've had several debates with a teatard cousin regarding the SCOTUS and constitutionality of laws.Of course the same guy claims to have been a life-long democrat until some mysterious event in 2008 made him change parties.
