Sue Myerscough Rules : NO Right To Bear Arms Outside Home
Yes, you read that correctly. Justice Sue Myerscough ruled that there does not exist a right to carry a firearm outside the home.
That can only mean, then, that homeless people have no right to bear arms. None whatsoever. They have no home, right? 1+1=2
I suppose that can only mean that a homeless person has no right to speak, or pray, or assemble or publish writings either. After all the Supreme Court said flatly and directly that "The Second Amendment is no different." in a crystal clear context of the First Amendment. Again - 1+1=2
I thought it long ago established that owning rights did not hinge upon property ownership. But then, The Second Amendment is clear all by itself. With this "decision", everyone in the country ought to be very worried. A federal court judge has just declared that regardless of the Second Amendment, regardless of Heller, regardless of McDonald, a court can simply say "No, you cannot exercise the right to bear arms outside your home - and there ain't jack squat you can do about it!" Or as Potsi would have said "Sit On It!".
Barack Obama should be asked, directly, how it can be that a judge he appointed can rule that a total prohibition of bearing arms can possibly pass Constitutional muster. The supreme Court itself ruled on that point already. Entire classes of weapon bans doesn't stand and neither does prohibition posing as regulation. Here we have the total destruction of a right and its exercise.....and NO REMEDY whatsoever. Another Illinois court already said that nobody can sue for money damages - so Title 42 Section 1983 protections has been dispensed with already as well.
All you journalists out there, how about your freedom of the press being limited to only "within the home"? Who in their right mind would do anything but laugh at that stupidity?
Now, some will argue that this is not really a big deal. Well, in the post Incorporation world it is a very big deal. Who among us thinks that other states, like say a Romney Massachusetts, won't look to this federal court decision in its attempt to crush the Second Amendment recognitions? Or how about a certain New York City Mayor? What applies in Illinois has to apply everywhere - such is the nature of "incorporation".
Brent? Sean? Rush? Mark?
I fail to understand how this foolishness cannot be lead off for all of tomorrow's shows. FFS, a federal judge just claimed that the right to bear arms does not exist past your doorsill (and even then only by permission)- in spite of it being right there in the Constitution itself, in spite of the foolishness that it is to say that a right can ONLY exist INSIDE your home! Really, can it get any more ridiculous than this? I suppose it can, when the conservative leaders watch it pass by without saying a word........Maybe this time that won't happen. However, I cannot hold much confidence in anything but that happening. It is what has always happened before....
I call for the Impeachment of Justice Sue Myerscough. There is no way to sanely read Heller to read that the right defined exists ONLY within the home. Two words, "such as" does not an ONLY example produce. That amounts to holding on to a pipe dream excuse in order to willfully and intentionally deny literally millions upon millions of people their Creator Endowed RIGHT to bear arms. Willful denial of individual rights amounts to the highest of crimes and borders on treasonous activity. It most certainly constitutes dereliction of duty and violation of her oath of office. She should be removed from the bench, immediately. This idiocy has gone on too long and went too far.
Hey Mr. Silent Speaker, John Boehner, will you have the courage to say anything about THIS Scandalous behavior, much less do anything about it? Noting your GunWalker silence and your passage of reciprocity for only 49 states AFTER the Supreme Court already held that the Second Amendment applies to ALL states, I doubt you have the courage to face this debacle either.
I guess we shall also see if the TEA party supporters, especially those with high exposure media positions, have the guts to stand up for the Individual Liberty they claim to stand for - or if they will just see yet another Liberty placed in the dustbin of history by an activist judge. This has to go VIRAL or it will be proven to me that Liberty itself is as dead as journalism the ay Sean Hannity described. It will mean that government can literally say and do anything it wants and there is literally nothing any of us can do about it.
