    They should just enact a new law that swaps out all the operative words with synonyms and make it go all the way back through the courts.

    And just another gentle reminder that the Queen, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, could have retired with a Democratic President and Senate at the age of 80, and not in amazing health, but chose not to due to hubris.

    In this country it’s totally legal to carry around an AR15, but you can be arrested for carrying brass knuckles.

    This is what needs to fucking happen on State and the Federal level. Keep daring the SC to continue to overturn every single law. Holy shit I am so mad at the ineptitude of so many elected Democrats.

    So English common law regarding firearms is too ambiguous to be applicable, but Alito is fine with striking down Roe based on the same 17th century bullshit. Am I getting that right?

    Not-so-crazy-guy chilling in Alito's hood should have waited a couple of weeks until this decision so he could legally carry a concealed AR with a massive magazine on Brookville Road in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

    It kind of gives away the game when your rulings are based on history and linguistics instead of law. Especially when you have no expertise in either of those areas.

    Doesn't that logic essentially mean that there's no basis to ban any firearm for safety reasons? Using that logic, why couldn't I own one of those machine guns they have on the side doors of military helicopters?

    Just need to rewrite the constitution and start from scratch (realizing never going to happen with what we have in Washington now).

    Pretty sure the intelligent scholars thought humans should be able to evolve this.

    Letting a few hundred year old document dictate everything seems so foolish.

    Their argument will be there is a constitutional right in the 2nd amendment to the right to own a firearm. Abortion was not written into the constitution and so therefore is left to the states.

    The moment I see anyone with a holstered weapon in a store I head around them or go to a different line. If shit pops off the last person I trust on the planet to not panic is that person plus the gun immediately makes them a target to a gunman.

    It took me a minute, but Alito wrote into concurrence to a Supreme Court opinion that concealed carry laws on the books did nothing to prevent a white supremacist from committing an open act of terror, and are therefore not even useful. What's next, banning smoking on flights didn't prevent the passengers of the 9/11 flights from dying, so we can light up on our next Delta flight?

    know it’s probably annoying to have to hear this repeatedly but nevertheless: this is what we lost with the coalescing around Biden to defeat the Sanders campaign, the ability to have someone in the executive that could meet the moment and recognize our institutional rot

    Eh, not really. It doesn't change the fact that the un-Mirandized statement is inadmissible in the criminal case. It just didn't create an independent tort for failure to Mirandize. As shitty as sovereign immunity is, that has largely been the law before this opinion.
