Scalia, You Dicta-Head

N.Y. Assembly Speaker Silver: ‘We Are Going To Ban Assault Weapons’ « CBS New York

* Limit ammunition clips to seven. It’s now 10

  • Force gun owners to renew their licenses every five years

  • Stiffen penalties for using a gun in the commission of a crime

  • Stiffen penalties for bringing a gun on school property

  • New restrictions on the assault weapons already owned by New Yorkers

“They will be basically not permitted to be transferred. They will be grandfathered in but not in terms of a transfer. There will be a registry,” Silver said.

I sincerely hope the Supreme Court stops this crap cold.

This is a giant step down the slippery slope. It’s as if Heller never happened. Damn you, Antonin Scalia, and your fucking dicta.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
