Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 28, 2017

The U.S. Supreme Court steered clear of the intensifying gun debate after the mass shootings in Nevada and Texas, turning away two appeals from firearms advocates, including one that sought a constitutional right to own a semiautomatic assault rifle. The justices, without comment Monday, left intact a ruling that upheld Maryland's ban on assault weapons. In a separate case, the high court refused to require Florida to let handguns be carried openly in public. The Supreme Court has repeatedly rebuffed gun advocates since it ruled in 2010 that people across the country have the right to keep a firearm in the home for self-defense. That case represents the last time the high court heard arguments on the reach of the Second Amendment.

Let these gun strokers join the military if they want to handle weapons. If they want to handle guns, make them do so with their zippers zipped. Pocket pool, anyone?

If you feel compelled to openly carry a gun in public, you have mental problems.

Supreme Court Rejects Assault Rifle, Open-Carry Appeals
Next up from the gun worshipers: "They're coming for our guns!!!"

Ever notice how it happens this way:

1. A gunman (it is always a man) opens fire and kills (5 10, 49, 58, whatever is the current "record").

2. That day it is all "prayers and thoughts"

3. The next day it is "too early to talk about it."

4. By the following day it is old news and everyone has moved on. Meanwhile nothing is done.

5. Then, a gunman (it is always a man) opens fire and kills (5 10, 49, 58, whatever is the current "record").

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Since when do rights conveyed to "the militia" automatically include individuals?

a semiautomatic assault rifle

That's an oxymoron.

This topic has been rehashed so many times that this is now in the territory of "stupid question".

Just because you disagree with the answer doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Turns out, it only semi-automatically includes individuals.
You can go full ------, I mean auto, but it costs an arm and a leg.
At least, that's what I read in a clip. I mean, a magazine.

These were state issues and the court was correct in not getting involved. If the people in those states don't like it, they can move to other states that allow what they are looking for..

We are quickly getting to a point where our states will be separating liberals from conservatives. And then the 2nd civil war will start.

If you feel compelled to openly carry a gun in public, you have mental problems.

If you want to have an abortion, you have mental problems.

Agree?

Be sure to wipe that drool off your chin before you go out.

But apparently not quick enough for you. Are you sure there isn't something you can do to speed it up?

Boazo doesn't want all that expensive survivor weaponry, multi-level AC'd foxhole, and rations to go to waste.

I'd hate to be him though, trying to tell all those post-apocalypse white guys that he was really on their side all along.

If you seriously think anyone actually WANTS to have an abortion, you have mental problems.

What if it's a rape baby?

I would still think any rational woman even if raped does not WANT an abortion but in this case might be FORCED to have an abortion by a circumstance not of her choosing.

Boaz have you seen Night Of The Living Dead?

Spoiler Alert:. The way that movie ends is the way your story will end if society collapses.

FALLOUT:

Oh Good Grief! Does this mean rednecks can't go duck hunting this season. Oh the horror.

I can only guess that too much moonshine inhibits one's aim.

Thanks for admitting that you don't believe in democracy BOAZ. At least you are finally being honest. If you can't get your way then violent revolution is the answer. Gee, how has that worked out for our country in 1863 and others since? Not to well. You sir are a completely dangerous idiot, sedition? Yes, I think so.

Anyone who threatens civil war should be scrutinized by our intelligence agencies and watched 100% of the time. We don't do civil war in the United States, we use elections to settle disputes, we use courts, we don't use wars to settle disputes and those who advocate for wars should be prosecuted for insurrection.

It would be funny if we had this civil war that Boaz is salivating over and he is the only one shot. In the nuts. But he lives.
