When I write about the law or politics being a game, or sometimes even go so far as to say it’s a joke, this is the kind of thing I’m speaking of. A lot of very rational people look at the law and view it as a rational system. Engineers, especially, and people with analytical minds, read the plain language think that’s what it’s supposed to mean, clearly, and surely judges are rational people who will see it that way.
But the law is administered by people, and people, for the most part, suck. The judge in the Walker case is a pretty clear example of an imbecile in a robe who has decided he is the law, and nothing else. In his courtroom, the law is going to be a game at best, and if you don’t wish to play along, a farce. You have to play around his eccentricity. These are the people the Second Amendment is now in the hands of. God help us.
