    Have you ever read Marbury v. Madison?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

As far as interpreting the 2nd amendment, read it. It's pretty straight forward.
    We get it, you disagree with a decision the Supreme Court made. Who cares?

    yes, me too.

    Americans have the right to keep & bear arms if they are part of the well-regulated militia, which is regulated by the government.

    Chyup. Sure did. I don't see how you have any other point other than complaining about how the Supreme Court interprets the 2nd amendment.

    In what way? You haven't shown anything otherwise below.


    Natural law consists of what the general populace recognizes as innately right or wrong. Where the "Law" walks all over natural law, you will find that the "Law" loses its credibility and enforceability.
    No. When the majority feels that certain action should be made legal, they change the law to make it legal. Many laws that people dislike were enforceable - for example the Prohibition.

    And if "natural law" is "what the general populace recognizes as innately right or wrong" then "natural law" means even less than nothing - which "general populace" are you talking about, from which time? Go to any state in the US, at any decade, and what the "general populace recognizes as innately right or wrong" could be very different.
