« Nationalized pizza three years later | Main | AR-15 At Rally »


I noted with disdain that Judge Sotomayor, in the Supreme Court nomination process, said, "The Constitution doesn't give me the right to go home, get a gun, and come back to shoot you," and none of our representatives on the committee called her out on it, they just let her preposterous statement stand.

Reader Bob R. correctly pointed out that the Constitution actually does guarantee exactly that. You would have to be perfectly justified in your use of force of course (which Sonia wouldn't have been in the circumstance she was in), but your right to go home, get a gun, and use it in a situation where it would be justified, is at the heart of a free society. Also note, it is a right the Constitution guarantees, not a right the Constitution gives, a common error in thought and logic from people in government. Thank you Bob, I stand corrected.


Disgraceful error of the week: MSNBC covered up the race of the AR-15 protester (he was black) at the Obama rally in Phoenix, and charged white racists with the "offense." Shame on such anti-ethical behavior. No correction is expected. See it with your own eyes.


I said our newly enacted Defensive Display self-defense law was invented in Arizona. It was not. Gary Marbut and Montana get the credit for this fine addition to statutes that protect the public. Sorry.
