    While we're at it, lets forward them on to Stephen Breyer as well.

    Breyer: Founding Fathers Would Have Allowed Restrictions on Guns
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010...#ixzz18TM5qxWb

    "...since the Founding Fathers did not foresee how modern day would change individual behavior, government bodies can impose regulations on guns, Breyer concluded."

    Breyer, who just published "Making Our Democracy Work," a book about the role of the court in American life, outlined his judicial philosophy as one in which the court must take a pragmatic approach in which it "should regard the Constitution as containing unwavering values that must be applied flexibly to ever-changing circumstances."
    Since the Founding Fathers could not foresee the impact of modern day communications and technology, the only option is to take the values of the Founding Fathers and apply them to today's challenges.
    "The difficult job in open cases where there is no clear answer is to take those values in this document, which all Americans hold, which do not change, and to apply them to a world that is ever changing," Breyer said. "It's not a matter of policy. It is a matter of what those framers intended."
    He suggested that those values and intentions mean that the Second Amendment allows for restrictions on the individual, including an all-out ban on handguns in the nation's capital.
    "We're acting as judges. If we're going to decide everything on the basis of history -- by the way, what is the scope of the right to keep and bear arms? Machine guns? Torpedoes? Handguns?" he asked. "Are you a sportsman? Do you like to shoot pistols at targets? Well, get on the subway and go to Maryland. There is no problem, I don't think, for anyone who really wants to have a gun."


    To all of those here who belive that the 2nd "isn't in any imminent threat", let this be a reminder why it is important to vote for a president whose nominees to the court will likely be faithful to the Constitution, to vote for U.S. senators who will reject nominees who likely will not be faithful, and to vote for federal and state legislators who can check and balance justices like Stephen Breyer who don't believe the Second Amendment protects any meaningful right.

    Breyer is an idiot. The framers clearly didn't give us the 2nd A to ensure our right to hunt or get on a subway to go to Maryland to shoot targets, Hunting was a way of life for a large % of people.

    The 2nd A is for us to protect us from govt's foreign and domestic; not to protect ourselves from each other or Bambi

    Breyer was appointed by Clinton, who is praised by many as being as "a centrist".
    Any bets on how Sotomayor & Kagan would rule if given the opportunity?

    Sotomayor already showed her colors. She voted against gun rights in the Chicago case after stating under oath that she supported the 2nd ammendment.

    While J. Sotomayor (& Ginsburg) did join in the dissenting opinion issued by J. Breyer and thus "showed her colors", she did not actually write one of her own, as did J. Stevens.

    It will be interesting (and perhaps a bit scary) to see if she will follow the same type of twisted logic (imo) as he did in that ruling; similarly in this latest interview where he cites Madison in attempting to limit the 2nd's intent to state militias, when Madison was one of the most definite supporters of individual liberties in the drafting of the Bill of Rights.

    Any bets how Thomas, Roberts, or Alito will rule?

    3 less taxpayer dollar sucking criminals in the world! I would say that it is way cool. Break the law be prepared to pay the price. At least we don't have to waste money feeding them and clothing them and providing them with anything.
    I love dirtbag extermination. Too bad there are not more terminated at the scene of the crime!
