usamamasan1 wrote:"I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012," are her exact words. And what would be a better option, in Ginsburg's opinion? The constitution of South Africa which provides no mention of a Right to Keep and Bear Arms in its lengthy bill of rights. You have a right to affordable housing, according to Ginsburg, but not the right to defend yourself inside your affordable home.
Imagine if one of the five justices who sided with the Second Amendment in the Heller or McDonald cases were to retire in the next four years. The likelihood of that happening is good, and we know that Barack Obama would replace him or her with a nominee who believes, just like Justice Ginsburg, that you and I don't actually have the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
This is what's at stake in this year's elections. Will we have a president who believes that our Constitution is nothing more than an old piece of paper that should be discarded or ignored when he sees fit? Not if the NRA has anything to say about it. We've been fighting for our Second Amendment rights since 1871, but never has there been a more critical time for our firearm freedoms. The danger is real, the stakes are immense, and the task won't be easy. Together, however, I know NRA members will go "All In" this election season to deny Obama the opportunity to nominate any more anti-gun judges to the nation's high court.
Seriously, dude: Go live in a cabin in Idaho. This bullshit has run its course.
