    well individual rights of people can be curtailed.....however the "right" itself, meaning for all the "people" cannot, the constitution forbids that

    Supreme Court rules on 'Straw Purchaser' Law.....

    Another victory for BO.....what did I tell say Last year. They have been getting their way and more is to come. Its his pet peeve now. He knew what he was getting putting Kagan on that bench. Same deal with Sotomayor. Now what say ye?


    A divided Supreme Court sided with gun control groups and the Obama administration Monday, ruling that the federal ban on "straw" purchases of guns can be enforced even if the ultimate buyer is legally allowed to own a gun. The justices ruled 5-4 that the law applied to a Virginia man who bought a gun with the intention of transferring it to a relative in Pennsylvania who was not prohibited from owning firearms.

    The ruling settles a split among appeals courts over federal gun laws intended to prevent sham buyers from obtaining guns for the sole purpose of giving them to another person. The laws were part of Congress' effort to make sure firearms did not get into the hands of unlawful recipients.

    Writing for the majority, Justice Elena Kagan said the federal government's elaborate system of background checks and record-keeping requirements help law enforcement investigate crimes by tracing guns to their buyers. Those provisions would mean little, she said, if a would-be gun buyer could evade them by simply getting another person to buy the gun and fill out the paperwork. Kagan's opinion was joined by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is often considered the court's swing vote, as well as liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor.

    In dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia said the language of the law does not support making it a crime for one lawful gun owner to buy a gun for another lawful gun owner. He was joined by the court's other conservatives — Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.....snip~

    This is the primary reason to get the Presidency - stacking the SCOTUS to shape the country via ideology. It sucks but that what we're left with.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yeah well after we get it back this next time.....we need to overturn and run out any of his puppets remaining. In any place he has touched.

    Although I am against Lifetime appointments. Moreover.....any over 65 years of age should be psychologically evaluated every 3 years. By an Independent.....who will make sure that none of them are entering senility or having any conditions that would affect their mental faculties.

    All of BO's picks should be tested for Bi-polar conditions, ADHD, and that Optional Defiance Disorder. Just sayin!

    They just keep on making the case against judicial review every time they violate the constitution.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Ginsburg should definitely be checked for senility. Especially after her trip to Egypt and what she said there. Wonder what she has to say about the MB now? Bet she wishes she could take back those words.....huh? Caught for all eternity.

    She was always a progressive piece of crap, should have been removed for that speech against the constitution because it pretty much invalidates her oath to uphold it, but she said it during bo's term so what he would replace her with can only be worse.
