Yes, when a judge proclaims, as she has, that an amendment to the US Constitution (in this instance, it was the Seccond Amendment) applies only to the Federal Gov. making laws, and not to state govt making laws, she has no business being allowed inside the Supreme Court BUILDING, let alone to sit at the bench.Every President gets this opportunity when a judge retires, to portray his way of thinking on the nation for years to come after he is long gone. It's nothing new in concept. Perhaps more relevant in result though considering the attacks the Constitution and Bill of Rights are coming under with the present socialist agenda.
OK, so, where else does this apply?“They’re not arms, except in the way they’re used,”

Seccond ammendment protection is "settled case law" in that it ONLY APPLIES TO THE FEDERAL GOVT.
Also, got to love this logic, don't ya?
OK, so, where else does this apply?
The butcher knife I used to slice a watermellon yesterday afternoon is a kitchen tool, cutlery, unless I decide to insert it into a living person, forcibly, perhaps repeatedly. It's not an "arm"............
The fork I ate eggs and sausage with this AM?
The baseball bat in my bedroom closet from playing softball in my 20's is a sports tool, unless I decide to beat someone nearly, or completely, to death with it. It's not an "arm"........................
The truck I drive to work daily, is a vehicle, a tool for transportation, untill I decide to use it to turn a person into a speed bump. It's not an "arm".......
With some time in Martial Arts, a person DOES learn the weaknesses of the human body, they are not special, so, I DO know "how to kill a person", using only my hands, and arms. Now, these are parts of me, tools I use to do things I do, not "arms", untill I decide to use them as such.
My pool cues, or a broom handle for that matter, looks a lot like a Bo, or Jo (shorter) staff, break one in half, you have my Escrimas, very short, 2' staffs.
Are those bannable, for what they COULD be used for?
The list is miles long...............................................
I can't think of very many items that CANNOT be used as a weapon if need arose, The Hostess Twinkie perhaps, and the Funoodle maybe.
The above items are potentially capable of being forbidden?
Apparently, if the states want to, I guess.
Almost every martial arts "weapon" other than the sword, was developed by peasants who were forbidden, under penalty of death, to possess a sword.
They used comon, available, farming and everyday implements, into weapons for use to protect themselves.
Nunchucku and 3-section staffs are grain threshers, Kama are Rice Sickles, all of the staffs were walking sticks, poles, etc.
I may very well be, according to the Dept. Of Homeland Security, yes.Achtung!!
Common sense WILL NOT be tolerated!!:|err
You right wing terrorist you!handhandhand
BC your wright on the money......So the 2nd Amendment, which is clearly enumerated in the Bill of Rights, only applies to the Federal Government but the "separation of church and state", which isn't mentioned anywhere in the Bill of Rights or the Constitution, applies to all "government" entities all the way down to local school boards?
