    it it is the responciblity of the SCOTUS to interprate the Constitution. And they have found that certain common-sense gun laws, such as preventing the mentally ill and felons from owning weapons, are within the intent of the 2nd Amendment.

    On a side note, I find it very troubling that LIBERALS are having to educate CONSERVATIVES, as to the true meaning & significance of the Constitution. Shouldn't it be the other way around? Why is it that Liberals are defending the supremacy of the Constitution while Conservatives are minimizing & denying it???
    So then you would agree that state conceal carry laws are unconstitutional?
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    the Supreme Court of the United States, disagrees.

    the question now is this: do you or do you not, respect the practises and ways of our Country?

    Do you understand what Judicial Review is?

    Sure there is. We've seen riots and mob reactions throughout human history which testify to the consequences for flagrantly violating natural law.

    Sure there is, that very requirement being the bad stuff that happens -- chaos and disregard for the rule of law.

    It is subject to change as society changes, but since natural law is primarily enforced by society as a whole, it's less about the individual opinion and more about the general agreement.

    The purpose of the courts is not to be an oligarchy of nine kings who start with the constitution and legislate from there. So no, your understanding of judicial review and mine are not the same. However, when it comes to the fourteenth amendment, it has not been applied by the courts to all of the constitution at this point, which is why the states can have conceal carry laws and the federal government does not. As far as interpreting the 2nd amendment, read it. It's pretty straight forward.

    interesting question. Let me turn it around on you. Should Elana Kagan recuse herself from the Obamacare ruling?

    If by "responsibility" you mean "self-appointed authority," then you are correct -- Marbury v. Madison - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If by "educate" you mean "pontificate," then both sides have been doing that since before there was a Constitution to "educate" about.

    Oh, so the Constitution of the USA does not give the Supreme Court the authority to interprate the meaning & intent of the Constitutional laws?

    That's your interpretation. Others would disagree.
