Quote of the Day

Charles C.W. Cooke commenting on the Massachusetts AG assault weapons ban reinterpretation:

In order to avoid the confusion and the caprice that this sort of behavior inevitably yields, I propose a better means of regulating the behavior of the citizenry henceforth: We could call it “the law,” and we could demand that it be written by “legislators” and subject to the strictures of a “constitution.” Crazy, I know.

The whole thing is a hot dumpster fire, but the Massachusetts Court system has been so biased against any idea of a Second Amendment right that the Supreme Court overturned them unanimously on stun guns. I know we’ve gotten this kind of arbitrariness and capriciousness thrown out in other states when they’ve tried it, but I don’t have a lot of faith in the Massachusetts Court system, or the federal 1st Circuit Court of Appeals.

    And with scalia gone…

    On the one hand, the appeal would have to go to SCOTUS. OTOH, SCOTUS just gave them a sternly worded decision on stun guns…

  3. Bill Twist says:

    Not just sternly worded, but one that says “You can’t go by what was available in the 18th Century”, which is really the only way Massachusetts can justify the AG’s position, especially if they interpret this as expansive enough to ban most semi-automatics.
