Adding a little to the bottom of this repeat.
Going a bit further Don if the Supreme Court made a decision which you considered an exception to the second amendment right to bear arms would that exception make the right to bear arms a "myth" in your opinion?
Has any Supreme Court justice that you know of ever referred to the right to bear arms as a "myth?"
For example in LEWIS v. UNITED STATES the Supreme Court decided regarding felons carrying fire arms. Prohibiting convicted felons from having firearms does not violate the 2nd amendment. Would seem felons are an exception to the right to keep and bear arms.
In two other Supreme Court rulings the court referred to the right to keep and bear arms are to have "freedom from all substantial arbitrary impositions and pursposeless restriants." Exceptions to the right to keep and bear arms would not make the right a myth would it?
Again, my view is exceptions to the first or second amendments in Supreme Court decisions would not make freedom of speech or the right to keep and bea arema a "myth."
You are welcome to your opinion if you believe freedom of speech to be largely a myth or freedom of speech pretty much a myth. I just disagree.
Perhaps I should wait and allow you to get your entire question out before attempting my next reply?
I've been here before, someone asks a question I answer, then they state my reply isn't in the form they prefer; ('yes or no') and before I can respond, there seems to be another question on the table...
So long as I don't get jumped for "not answering THE question" I suppose I can put up with it.
Now here we have a bit of a conundrum, the case of Lewis –vs- the United States…
The Supreme Court and the Constitution both say that anyone accused of a crime should be protected against double jeopardy.
If a felon is convicted, incarcerated and serves their time – their obligation to society should be fulfilled shouldn’t it?
Wouldn’t firearm restrictions against a felon who had served their time be considered “double jeopardy’? It depends on who you ask I suppose.
Personally I agree with the Lewis v. U.S. ruling, but as I have stated, it seems to me to be the imposition of a Constitutionally contrary, double jeopardy clause – but the Supreme Court has spoken.
But no longer being a member of the government and never being a Supreme Court Justice, I believe I am allowed these types of opinions – just between friends, you understand.
