Pick a side you cowards, get off the damn fence and decide whether the law matters or it doesn't.
There's lots of things in the Constitution that gets the same treatment as well, especially the general welfare clause. Today the US and SCOTUS interpret the General Welfare Clause in the same way that Alexander Hamilton did, that the US collect taxes and spend the money on support programs that include, but are not limited to, agricultural production and education. So, the US providing for social welfare programs was not something that came into the discussion when FDR was elected

And if the self-Righteous whiners who allegedly believe so strongly in the Constitution actually did they'd realize it's the duty of the SCOTUS to rule on the Constitutionality of a law and not every Tom, Dick, and Harry who think they make that decision.

It's about 'We The People'.

It's quite often Tom,Dick and Harry who have to make enough of a fuss to have the SCOTUS change/reverse their opinion and/or to come up with an opinion in the first place.

We now celebrate those people and their decision on Independence Day.
And those very same people also wrote some laws you apparently now believe are meaningless and can be cherry-picked and ignored at will, eh?

What about our "unalienable right to life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness"? It seems that only the shooters have rights.

Yeah, we get it, you think that everyone who owns a firearm and disagrees with Feinstein's Folly just has to be a right-wing tea partier. Hate to be the bearer of bad tidings for you, but you're way off the mark. Personally, I despise the Tea Party and I'm a social liberal. All you have to do is check my post history to figure that out.

But, you go ahead with your insults and innuendos about those of us who realize exactly how idiotic this woman's plan for firearms owners are. You seem to be enjoying yourself with that bold tag.

At what point does my owning a firearm of my choice affect your rights?

And if they really gave a rat's ass about the law they'd be doing that rather than making the decision on their own, eh?
