That leftist bow tied asshat.

Quote:Reuters reported that the retired justice was the speaker at Monday's luncheon hosted by the anti-gun Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Stevens wrote dissenting opinions on both the 2008 Heller ruling and the 2010 McDonald decision, both of which affirmed that the Second Amendment protects an individual civil right to keep and bear arms.

"In both of his dissents," noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, "Justice Stevens contended that the right to keep and bear arms was limited to state militia service. It was, and remains, an astonishing position on a fundamental civil right.

"What Justice Stevens' speech clearly underscores," he continued, "is the critical importance of who is president, not just for the next four years, but whenever a vacancy occurs on the high court. Imagine if Justice Stevens' opinion had prevailed."

Stevens' dissent in the Heller case was heavily criticized by the majority opinion, written by Justice Antonin Scalia. The majority ruling described Stevens' arguments as "simply wrong," and at one point – when addressing Stevens' history of the Second Amendment – said that he "flatly misreads the historical record."

"Stevens' replacement on the Supreme Court was liberal Elena Kagan," Gottlieb noted. "A liberal, anti-gun majority could easily narrow, rather than expand, the scope of our Second Amendment. That's why it is, and always will be, important for gun owners to have a pro-gun-rights president and pro-gun majority in the Senate, especially on the Judiciary Committee."

I know many reasonable liberals.

It's the far left- and far right, for that matter- loons that make my head hurt.

Let's not forget that abortion center bombings are perpetrated by the far right. Extremists are the problem. Sadly, there are extremists everywhere.

Stevens was never pro-2a or even a constitutionalist while he was on the bench, why would anyone think otherwise now?

You would think that a guy that age would be well versed in history and the lessons that come it. How many wars did this guy live through not to know that a unarmed citizens are nothing more than subjects.

First action the United States does when it wants an overthrow of a foreign government is to arm the citizens, train them and finance their cause. Our government knows this well and therefore they don't want it happening on US soil so they enact gun control. If the Posse Comitatus Act was ever suspended, I would believe that soldiers would not fire upon US citizens. IIRC there was a poll done of service members and this was proven to be the case. Therefore, there has been a drive to militarize the police force and give even more resources to the alphabet agencies. There has been growing division between law enforcement and citizens, the "Us vs You" mentality, and the wedge continues to grow deeper and deeper.

The problem isn't with the logic, its with your first sentence. "You would think..". Liberals don't think, they feel. Whatever feels right is their reality, facts be damned.
