Like most federal court rulings, which are outside the scope of their authority to rule on, we are seeing more interference from a federal court which has no business hearing that case before them. In this particular case regarding arms, I’ve already laid out the position that the federal government was given no authority to restrict arms in any capacity in the Second Amendment.

Now, understand that, first of all, there was no place for this federal court to rule, according to the US Constitution. Second, using an emotional argument for upholding an unconstitutional ban smacks of the emasculation of law and demonstrates the effeminate nature of some of the judges that America is putting on the bench.
