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.

    • Thanks to Ufatz, I didn't have to make a wasted trip to my mailbox today...
    • YES, they DO shut down if not enough oxygen. Been dealing with that one for almost 15  years of teaching this. They DO NOT have a CO shutoff, that's what I'm trying to hammer into peoples heads. That's what all thermocouples do, shut the gas valve.  A thermocouple is a safety device for some gas appliances. One end of the thermocouple is heated by a pilot flame, and the other end is connected to a gas valve. As long as the pilot light stays lit, the thermocouple holds the gas valve open and lets gas flow to the main burner of the appliance. The sensor on the end of the thermocouple is heated by the flame of the pilot light. The heat generated is converted into micro volts of electricity. This Electricity is enough to open a tiny magnet in the gas valve, and allow the gas to flow. If the pilot light was to blow out, then the sensor on the Thermocouple cools, and then closes the gas valve to the burner. This ensures that when the pilot flame goes out, Gas cannot escape from the pilot. It is automatically shut down.  That's how it works....if there isn't enough O to support the pilot, you might as well hang it up. They've been petitioned to remove their "low oxygen shut off" from their labeling. Best they did was re-word it. 
    • I believe the v-fronts help, but there is always the vacuum on the flat back-end.  I have had both am always surprised by what I'd call the rear drag.
    • Do buddy heaters even have a low oxygen / CO shut off?  My understanding is they have a thermocouple that kills the gas flow if it's not lit, but it will burn as long as there is a pilot light and enough O2 for combustion, which is probably less O2 than what it would take to make you feel like dump.  And even if O2 levels are high, CO can still be off the chart.   Do people get a lot of alarms going off?  Seems like there is going to be CO in my porty just from the buddy heater going even if the conc is well below a danger level.  I figured those things were calibrated for use in places like your house which should be right at about 0ppm, unless it's right next to the furnace.   In a related story, my MIL was house sitting for a friend when the CO detector went off.  She opened some windows and went outside but started getting a headache, naseous, light headed, weak, dizzy, all sorts of symptoms.  Called 911.  Fire department rolled out, ambulance sent.... And the detector was alarming because the battery was almost dead.  CO levels were at 0ppm.    
    • I'll wait patiently on memorial day, veteran's day, the 4th of July, 9/11, Xmas, new years, labor day, or any of the other federally recognized holidays for you to throw up another post with no point.
    • Thinking about building a new Fish House.   Does a "V" Front really make that big of a difference in towing?   Campers aren't "V" front so just wondering. I think I could utilize space a lot better with a regular square front.
    • Did you ever weigh the house?
    • Thanks for the reminder.  The trash goes to the road tonight for tomorrow's pick up.  I'll drag it down the driveway on my way to the lake.    
    • Had to bring the wife back last night anyway but a 3 day run woulda been nice.  I got to play with and feed our granddaughter, get ice gear thawed out and recharge batteries, making lunch and gonna head out for the evening bite.   I have a dream!
    • Thanks Rebelss. You just can't emphasize the importance of a C/O alarm especially with the new fish  houses being built so tight. My service man just ran into a B/O furnace on a no heat after hours call.  Home owner was very lucky and of course no alarm.
