Quote of the day—Alan Korwin

It is well past time to single out the naysayers and myth purveyors, help them with interventions and counseling, and get on with the process of training and arming the staff where our precious youngsters gather on a daily basis. Stop the lunatics from stopping reasonable, common-sense gun-safety laws, like armed teachers.

KORWIN: Moderate Judges, Armed Teachers And Guns Are Germs – Three Myths We Just Busted
[In many cases intervention is probably not appropriate. In those cases prosecution would seem to be the better plan.—Joe]

  1. Did I miss something, or did the Supreme Court just gut the bans on full auto firearms?

    Something recently was stated by the Supreme Court that changes the game. In a recent decision Caetano vs Massachusetts, they said:

    “Referring to its landmark 2008 ruling on handguns in the home, the justices said the Second Amendment applies “to all instruments that constitute bearable arms,” even those not in existence at the time of the founding.”

    Guys and girls, that means ALL INSTRUMENTS that constitute bearable arms!

    Does that not essentially gut the provisions on full auto firearms, etc? While a MaDeuce might not be considered a bearable arm, M240’s certainly are! So are machine pistols, sub machine guns, full auto AR15’s, etc.

    • In principle you are correct. But SCOTUS didn’t actually overturn the stun gun conviction. The clarified things for the state court and told them to reconsider. Which, as pointed out in the comments here, may in practice mean the lower court comes up with a better rational than “a stun gun is not a smooth barreled muzzle loader and hence not protected”. If the lower court comes up with something that can rationalized as not ignoring Heller then SCOTUS may let them get away with it.
