Q: 

2d amendment case: DC v. Heller

A:  I''m sure that this thread will get lost in the welter of gunnut glee over what they see as (in the words of one of them) a victory against those who hate freedom. Nevertheless, i was glad to see that you had commented. Thanks for the comment Joe. I haven''t had the time to look too deeply at the ruling but an interesting note about "keep and bear arms" in the little scanning I did. If it is constitutional to keep arms and if "bear arms" doesn''t have to be in context of militia that puts the possibility out there that no laws can be passed that restrict carrying guns. Yet Scalia states that carrying can be restricted in certain instances. (I don''t recall what his term was in talking about schools, etc.) No doubt this...

Q: 

How did something so blatantly against the constitution pass?

A:  I'm still wondering why the DOJ has sided with criminals (illegal immigrants) who have broken federal immigration law. I'm still wondering why Social Security is legal. It's a ponzie sceem and not good enough for Elitist Unions or Federal employees....

Q: 

CHEERFULNESS FROM US SUPREME COURT

A:  @OmSigDAVID, I prefer looking at naked women. But whatever works for ya... @rosborne979, Thay r freely available, but too many people have been killed as a result of gun control laws that caused victims to be helpless in the face of (fatal) predatory emergencies. Their families can take solace in inscribing upon their tombstones: here lies the body of Kitty Genovese who obayed every gun control law....

Q: 

PRISON

A:  Joe, have you ever been either a prisoner or a prison guard? Watching "OZ" on HBO made me more sensitive to what is going on in our prison system. Although I don''t believe anyone should be rewarded for committing a crime, white collar (color?) crime which often involves stealing millions from the public over someone stealing a stereo out of a car get virtually the same sentence in what amounts to a country club prison. I believe a criminal can be rehabilitated and there''s a reason why we have more people in prison than any other country. Incidentally, Welcome to A2K, JOEBIALEK! I agree that our prisions are in terrible shape. They have become warehouses. This is from today''s paper: Today, 22 percent of Oregon''s 12,200 inmates suffer from serious mental illness, according to...

Q:

Q: 

What Is a constitutional amendment?

A:  A constitutional amendment is an addition or change to the constitution that administers a government or organization. A constitution is the initial charter adopted when such a body is first formed. This is the primary document group members will reference when considering a questionable law or practice. It is designed to apply as written throughout the organizationís existence. Amending a constitution can be a rigorous process, because such amendments must be judged to uphold the spirit of the original document. The U.S. constitution is probably the most famous example of an amended

Q: 

Can a constitutional amendment be Unconstitutional?

A:  Hmmm. Since the Supreme''s are supposed to be beholden to the constitution in interpreting law, I''d imagine that it trumps their authority. Not that that would have anything to do with real-world actions. I''m doing Thanksgiving with a lawyer and three law students (shudder). Maybe it''ll come up... If it''s a ratified amendment then it is a part of the constitution and as such, can''t be ruled "unconstitional". Any/all parts of the constitution are always "constitutional". And: She sells sea shells by the seashore. Say the three times fast. How can an
