Chilling effect

I hope the whole “chilling effect” concept is expanded to include 2nd Amendment rights. This is, of course, part of the intent of FPC in their amicus brief as outlined here.

This will greatly expand the number of oppressive laws struck down in the following court cases. It could even be leveraged to get rid of registration and background checks.

  1. Bah. That is a game for the wealthy or the connected. That way, laws go down after a financially ruinous legal suits. Some get some payback. Most just get bankruptsy and maybe some satisfaction.

    If the whores who pass that legislation don’t have to pay, they just change the wording, and do it again.

  2. They keep arguing over something that does not exist.
    The right to abortion is no where in the constitution. Nor is there a constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
    FPC, nor the SCOTUS seem to understand that 2A is a numerated prohibition on government infringement.
    Suing someone for murder is not a violation of ones rights. Wither a firearm or vacuum pump was used to do it.
    And one can carry a vacuum pump around all one wants. Or forceps for that matter. Just as I can carry a gun.
    Its how there used that is the matter. And everyone in the system seems to once again be forgetting that.
