“They [the Framers] had some limitations on the nature of arms that could be borne.”—Antonin Scalia, Supreme Court Justice
So many times what ends up in an article or interview bears little resemblance to what the person actually meant, and full context of Scalia’s comments is needed. Yet, this sounds like a gun-grabber talk to me.
Is Scalia signaling the future direction of an emboldened and now activist court? Now all that’s required is for some politician/lawyer with “standing” to bring a case to the Court.
History seems to be repeating itself. Obama’s tactics are reminiscent of those used by Franklin D. Roosevelt who copied virtually every aspect of Adolf Hitler’s national socialist policies for a planned and controlled economy in order to control every facet of economic life and every branch of government.
Checks and balances have been discarded to the wayside because the managerial structures of fascism and communism are vastly superior for ordering society. America’s future now lies within top-down command-and-control machine of the fascist-communist state.
“Praemonitus praemunitus” to be forewarned is to be forearmed.
