Sotomayor anti-gun?

8 posts in this topic

Seems she was one of only three apellate judges to issue a court opinion that the Second Ammendment does NOT apply to the states!

The case was Maloney vs Cuomo this past january.

Was this the nun chuck case that everyone is misinterpreting?

"The Supreme Court is considering whether to hear a case in which Judge Sotomayor and two others upheld a New York state law banning the possession of a nunchucks. The question is whether the Second Amendment restricts the power of state governments to regulate personal weapons."

From my non-law background it seems to be more about the 2nd amendment applying to various types of weapons, rather than if the 2nd amendment is applicable to the entire federation of states.

Hopefully we can have a more intellectually valid discussion on the merits of Ms. Sotomayor.

Oh..you mean the Maloney vs Coumo case were the court's opinion was that the second admendment did not protect individuals from having their rights restricted by state government's??

She is going to need to do some 'splaining

As to whether the second amendment gives the states power to regulate weapons??

My boys back home in Montana have just passed into

law, the "Montana Firearm Freedom Act". It is

freeing itself from big government's rules

and regulations. Not a joke, it is real and a fact

of law. Any firearms made and used in Montana are

not subject to the feds anymore. No more registration.

No more waiting periods or carry permits. Silencers

(made in Montana) are perfectly legal under state law.

Yata yata yata. I assume the chucks are a "go"??

Further info from the capital, is if the ATF crew try to

come and enforce the federal statutes, they will be

subject to arrest themselves!! The line has been

drawn out there in Helena... You don't mess with us

no more!!

Do a search on it. What's next sucession...Hmmmm no

more federal taxes!!

Minnesota has a bill before the House that doesn't specifically address firearms, but has similar language to Montana's with regards to State's sovereignty. HF997 - no action taken since 3-09-09.

In 2004, in U.S. v. Sanchez-Villar, a three-judge panel that included Sotomayor wrote that “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.”

Intellectually valid ?

Nope.

Don’t get your undies in to big of a wad concerning her 2nd amendment stance.

The Sanchez-Villar case was about an illegal immigrant who was busted for drugs and the way they got him was for firearm possession. The court ruled that being an illegal with a firearm was sufficient cause to search him which turned up the drugs.

The quote was not Sotomayor's opinion, it was merely a footnote in the decision. The quote you’re referring to was from US v Toner (1984) which dealt with equal protection issues.
