My Kinda Judge!

Here's all you need to know:

Applying the logic of the Constitution in Exile for all it's worth, Alito insisted that the private possession of machine guns was not an economic activity, and there was no empirical evidence that private gun possession increased violent crime in a way that substantially affected commerce--therefore, Congress has no right to regulate it.

Well, he was out-voted on that one--but his head is in the right place.

Duh, it does not. Some people just go nutso, but if we have machine guns of our own to defend ourselves, it is all just happy as can be.

Well , there is definitely a ton of empirical evidence that says that I would be happier if I had an MP 40 plus my neighborhood would be way safer too so I have to agree that this appointment rocks.

Props to John Lott for digging this up for us.
