Republican love appointing their strict constructionist judges, especially to the Supreme Court. Yesterday these right wing Justices, whose avowed judicial philosophy is to enforce the constitution exactly as it is written and neither read nor interpret anything else into it, heard this thrown back at them in the form of a challenge to the Second Amendment.
The District of Columbia argued that a strict constructionist reading of the right to bear arms limits gun ownership to those in the military. That IS what the document says and it's even what it means in the context of the times and men who wrote it into the constitution. These strict constructionist Justices however will abandon their widely heralded judicial philosophy on the altar of the NRA and the gods to which gun owners around the country sacrifice children and others to the violence wrought by these products.
Such hypocrisy is truly shocking. If you're going to wrap yourself in the mantel of a strict constructionist you must also then be consistent about your views.
