John Paul Stevens makes a strong case

The retired Supreme Court justice makes a strong case for his arrest.
Rarely in my lifetime have I seen the type of civic engagement schoolchildren and their supporters demonstrated in Washington and other major cities throughout the country this past Saturday. These demonstrations demand our respect. They reveal the broad public support for legislation to minimize the risk of mass killings of schoolchildren and others in our society.

That support is a clear sign to lawmakers to enact legislation prohibiting civilian ownership of semiautomatic weapons, increasing the minimum age to buy a gun from 18 to 21 years old, and establishing more comprehensive background checks on all purchasers of firearms. But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform. They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.

Concern that a national standing army might pose a threat to the security of the separate states led to the adoption of that amendment, which provides that “a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Today that concern is a relic of the 18th century.
Rarely in my lifetime have I seen such a rancid diaper-load of rhetorical diarrhea as Justice Stevens presents in The New York Times. He piles falsehood upon falsehood, lie upon lie, in a futile attempt to build public support for a direct assault on the 2nd Amendment and the unalienable American rights it was written to protect.

And since he observably has no respect for those rights, the God-Emperor would do very well to order the old man locked up for high crimes and treason on the evidence of his career on the court.

I would be utterly unsurprised to find a large amount of not just Deep State involvement, but State (usu. in the form of bureaucrats and administrators) support. On the order that it would be fairly easy to prove violation of 18 U.S. Code § 241 - Conspiracy against rights.

I've said it before, but the most lawless branch of the federal government is without a doubt the Judicial, particularly the Supreme Court which wraps up opinion and whim in legalese and bludgeons the other two branches, effectively styling itself as Lord and Master over (and superior) to the very Constitution which commissions it.

Actually, I hope the Democratic party decides to adopt this. Nothing would stop any potential blue wave faster.

However, Trump should head them off at the pass. Propose a new Constitutional amendment that bans anyone who has ever registered or runs as a Democrat from ever possessing a gun (and thus from serving in the military or in the various police agencies) or having anyone in their direct or indirect employment who does (which means no armed security, including the Secret Service). They're the ones that don't want them. Let's offer to give them what they want.

The thrust of the 2nd Amendment doesn't even inhere in the historical minutiae of it's adoption (which 'his Honor' is lying about), but in the idea that The People have an inalienable right to mount -- and be equipped for -- a sufficient defense against the inevitable tyranny of all power systems and their apparatuses, especially in post-decadence societies in open revolt against God, Nature and themselves. Blood in the Balance; Balance in the Blood.

That people are voting-in and marching in the streets in favor of the tyranny is incidental -- a symptom.

Great idea. Trump won't go for it. He's a good troll but not that good. God help the opposition if we ever get a President who truly understands that dark art.

I responded to a recent Trump survey with a suggestion that the press be required to recite the Pledge of Allegiance before all briefings. Those who refuse should be escorted out. I doubt it'll be picked up on, but wouldn't that be funny?

You've got to hand it to him -- at least he's talking about an actual amendment to the Constitution, not the stealth amendments that he and his ilk are so fond of conjuring out of thin air.

The larger point is that almost every Supreme Court Justice since the FDR administration has elevated himself above the Constitution. Law students don't even study the Constitution anymore, but rather the Court's insane ramblings about it, treating the latter as if it were the law of the land. Most ordinary people have fallen into this trap as well, characterizing the latest excretion from the Justices as "the law of the land" with little further discussion other than the need to appoint "better" Justices. People need to remember that the Court is merely a branch of the federal government and thus inferior to the Constitution. When the two come into direct conflict, the only solution is to disobey the feds and their judges while living in accordance with what the Constitution says. And the Second Amendment is a big help.

Justice Stevens is apparently losing all memory of events during his own lifetime. School children have been used for many decades to add to demonstrations, protests, and riots in this country for many years. Baltimore? Ferguson? New York? Chicago? Memphis? He should be able to remember all those Earth Day protests. They always occur on Lenin's birthday. The first one, I remember well.....black armbands were the fashion. How about the anti-war protests? Yes, that included school chillins. How about the civil rights marches? You bet! Even little chillins make good human shields for their more violent criminal relatives and neighbors.

I doubt there have been many protests, demonstrations, and riots that did not include "school children" in some useful capacity. Yes, the Media find them very convenient...even when they drown in the sea off the coast of Greece or Turkey, the Media never hesitate to pose the dead body of a child for that perfect photo opportunity.

The 13th Amendment was written specifically to free the Negro slaves in states where slavery was lawful. There are no slaves in any state, nor is there any living person who has been a slave in this country, so it is also a relic of the 19th century and can be safely repealed.

For years now, the left has cultivated the idea of a "living document" view of the Constitution. Essentially, it means that any circumstance that the founders could not have foreseen gives the judge carte blanche to make up the law. By this logic, we can try, imprison, and execute any leftist who speaks up for conspiracy against the second amendment because the founders could not have foreseen Marxism.

Not very smart. You are banning a whole lot of Trump voters. In many rural areas, people to the right of the Birchers are still registered Democrats. Their daddy was a Democrat, their grand daddy was a Democrat, and his grand daddy was a Democrat.
In many counties in Kentucky if you are not registered Democrat, you get no vote in local matters. We have closed primaries and in many counties the Democrats are the only ones to run candidates. So if you want a vote for sheriff or Judge Executive you have to be registered as a Democrat. This is changing, but it still has many years to go.

President Trump should announce powerful initiatives for reducing gun violence.

1) A moratorium on immigration.
2) A campaign to reduce unwed pregnancies.

Gun violence is powerfully correlated to overcrowding, poverty, idleness, youth, nontraditional familes, etc.

All the above problems would be significantly alleviated by the two proposals and reduce gun violence far more than any antigun legislation.

Anyone who opposes a radical reduction of immigration and a return to the nuclear family is for killing kids!

This is the kind of political judo that the Right needs to use against these inevitable Leftist political eruptions.

Stevens is not fit to be a judge, nor an American citizen. Exile or prison for him.

So, since the right to self defense and ownership of our bodies is apparently archaic, why not repeal the 13th Amendment then? Let's bring back legal slavery.

Precisely. We all know, of course, that the Left merely wants to disarm its enemies. They don't give two sh*ts about kids' safety. Just look at the way the EU treats their dhimmi.

They're tickled and happy when a mass amount of kids die.

The larger point is that almost every Supreme Court Justice since the FDR administration has elevated himself above the Constitution. Law students don't even study the Constitution anymore, but rather the Court's insane ramblings about it, treating the latter as if it were the law of the land.

Why does this remind me of the elevation of the Talmud above the Torah by (((certain people)))?

Could there be a correlation, for instance, with "Social Justice Woman" (((Ruth Bader Ginsberg)))?

At my Conservative Christian law school, we definitely studied the Constitution from a historical and textual basis. My professor was a strict constructionist who studied under Justice Scalia. There are probably 4 other schools like mine, so there are definitely still some young attorneys who know how things should be done.

I don't think it will matter for too much longer though. I think Vox's latest prediction was a 2030's breakup of the US? I honestly don't know if we're going to make it to 2020 at this rate.

My best Jewish friend from college days - '68 to '70 - before he died, told me that, by his observation, I regarded the Bill of Rights as Torah and the rest of the Constitution as Tanakh. I definitely get your comparison of the Talmud to the tottering and drafty edifice of case law built upon the whole Constitution - some of that so top-lofty that it has lost any touch with that to which it refers. (BTW I am not Jewish - nor knowingly anti-Semitic.)

The pace of the anti-2A crowd has certainly increased. They have given up all pretense of not coming for all guns, and they are pushing hard for it NOW. Given that Trump signed that Godawful Omnibus because of the military funding, it's seriously making me wonder if he really is going after them before the midterms, and they know it. I can't see too many other explanations for the timing, though I admit my info is far from complete. I'm hoping for a panicked news day about 'wasteful' Trump ordering a bunch of new CH-47s now.

Agreed - this is technically sedition, if not teetering on treason. His appeal to destroy the Constitution technically makes him a supporter of overthrowing the Republic.

> Not very smart. You are banning a whole lot of Trump voters.

Only if it passed. It's like putting the DACA onus back on Congress.

Besides, I never said they couldn't vote, merely that they couldn't possess guns or hire someone to do so for them. In fact, if the second amendment is repealed for them, they couldn't even legally own a knife.

> It'll take a war.

Of course. The past year has been more than enough to demonstrate that fact to anyone paying attention. The only alternative is peaceful separation. I support it, but I don't see it happening.

They can make whatever laws they like, it doesn't matter, we won't comply.

If they did somehow manage to repeal the 2nd Amendment, that'd just be seen by many as a formal declaration of war.

Regardless of whether the U.S. military has been misused or not, it's the utter fear, around the world, of two carrier groups showing up off somoene's shores, escorting an Expeditionary Group with all their landing craft, while the entire 18th Airborne Corps performs vertical envelopment which prevents a lot of countries from doing stupid things to you.

And even when the U.S. military is sent off on missions which don't necessarily advance a fruitful foreign policy, the demonstration towards the entire world of what the Pentagon's forces can do which keeps a lot of otherwise adventurous idiots thinking of peaceful ways to obtain their goals in life.

So, really, it doesn't matter one bit if I was "lied to" or all the other bullshit you idiots are throwing around... SOMEBODY has to fill the uniforms, and keep themselves prepared. The fact that we demonstrate that we can literally take over a country on the other side of the planet in a matter of weeks is what keeps the rest of the world from even contemplating messing with a single hair on your heads.

What do you think happens to prosperous countries with ZERO military might (and no other country playing the role of guardian angel)???

Dirk,

The Ledeen Doctrine is better known outside the US than inside it, for obvious reasons.

Remember that every benefit has a cost, and every cost a benefit, but only talking about one without considering the other is suicidal foolishness. Only the comparison of the two can tell you what’s a good or worthwhile policy and what is not.

System is collapsing and pouring more resources into the military excursions is a characteristic. Yes, it matters if misuse, since misuse promotes the collapse. Anyone allowing themselves to be part of misuse is part of promoting collapse.

Jaime, I don't call the shots.

If it were up to me, the Mexican border would be manned by an entire field army (3 corps of at least 3 divisions each).

That's besides the point.

You can either send incompetent dregs of society overseas to do things (who really waste your money), or you can send competent people to go do the job, so it gets done properly.

The politicians aren't going to change their decisions on whether to use the military or not based upon whether I re-enlisted or not.

There is no "two party system". We have one deep state elite party.
The only difference between the Democrats and Republicans is the difference between communists and socialist .
Democrats = communists = murder. Republicans = socialists = suicide.
Democrats rule and enslave by force (murder). Republicans rule and enslave by votes, (suicide).
They are the two heads of the deep state elite party.
Make no mistake about this, the deep state elite want us dead. Their political, economic and social agenda is closing to the end result of a total disarmed citizenry.
When the British demanded we surrender our guns, we shot them.

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
