    OMG, did anyone watch Bill Maher on Jay Leno last night about the AZ incident and related 2nd discussion? Watch: http://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/video/bill-ma

    That guy sure is scary to liberty — has he ever read and understood the original intent of the Constitution? Time for the Judge to have Maher on the show to expose his fallacies.

    Ironic thing is, Maher gave a fair shake to Ron Paul back in the 2008 election interview I watched…

    Thanks for the link. “Nobody needs a gun that fires 31 rounds.” Seems like it might come in handy if your attacker has one.
    I recall that before Maher gave Ron the “fair shake” you refer to, he first attacked and ridiculed him.
    Maher simply does not understand the nature of the state. He hates the state when it’s killing foreigners in our name or busting people who ingest unapproved substances. I suspect that’s why he had second thoughts and invited Dr. Paul back. But he loves the state the rest of the time, and of course when it comes to economics, he’s clueless.
    Maher is a typical leftie in that he thinks that the stupid, self-interested criminals who dictate wars on drugs and foreigners suddenly become geniuses when they turn their attention to gun control, education, the minimum wage, etc.
    I wish the Judge had let Tom DiLorenzo talk more. Wouldn’t it be great if he had him back to discuss Lincoln?

    "I wish the Judge had let Tom DiLorenzo talk more. Wouldn’t it be great if he had him back to discuss Lincoln? "

    Amen Roland!

    I'd love to hear what DiLorenzo had to say on a number of topics with the Judge. He is probably the foremost economic historian in our country.

    Your straight talk at the end of every show, Judge, is one of pure logic and articulation. I'm going to find a clip of just that and show it to all the people who are ranting about how the Arizona shooting shows that we need gun control. Sheesh, even the FBI Agent on your show (can't remember his name) admitted that where there are more guns there is less crime! Yes, it would be good if people who had arms on them knew how to use them. Doesn't mean we should outright ban guns. We need the opposite.

    I have a question.

    Where in the Second Amendment does it say that only 'law abiding citizens' have the right to keep and bear arms?

    This whole 'law abiding' thing is just PC speech that confirms that the government may have the authority to enact laws that decide who and who does not have the right.

    Thats not the governments decision to make.

    Thats a juries decision,when they sentence someone to prison or commit someone to a mental health facility (where Jared Loughner obviously belonged after his blatant display of mental illness in that community college classroom).

    The Second Amendment is a recognition of the pre-existing right to self defense of all human beings,which is an inalienable right that we all have because of our humanity,and all the 'law abiding only' and the CCW permission slip permits from government deny that fact by allowing government to regulate an inalienable human right into the position of a government administered privilege.

    The Second Amendment applies to all free people,it clearly says that it "shall not be infringed",it is the law; and inalienable rights cannot be "taken away" by any act of government,only restrained when someone is placed in the custody of a mental health facility or jail,where 'custody' denotes a custodial relationship where the custodian must provide for the safety of his charges.

    Otherwise,it is the nature of life that it is up to the individual to defend themselves,and any act or law that attempts to circumvent this natural law is in fact tyrannical and in America-void of lawful authority.

    “The people… shall have the right to keep and bear arms; and they need no permission or regulation of law for the purpose.” -Thomas Cooley,Treatise on Constitutional Limitations,1868

    "There exists a law, not written down anywhere, but in our hearts; a law which comes to us not by training or custom or reading; a law which has come to us not from theory but from practice; not by instruction but by natural intuition: I refer to the law which lays it down that, if our lives are endangered by plots or violence or armed robbers or enemies, any and every method of protecting ourselves is morally right."
    -Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC-43 BC) Roman Orator and Statesman at the trial of T. Annius Milo in 52 BC

    "Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law', because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."
    -Thomas Jefferson

    "within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.". Felons have demonstrated, to the extent that fallable humans can achieve, that they have a high disregard for the rights of others. That is depending, of course, on having just laws and a fair legal system. We certainly need to put more emphasis on the "just" part of justice system, but arming serious criminals is not the way to do it.

    It has always been for market control. Like so many things.

    Your the man, Judge.
    …Although, I would argue that the 14th amendment was clearly intended to force the South include black votes–As well, citizenship IS conditional on being free of allegiance to foreign powers.
    Mexico, and other countries, grant citizenship to babies born of their nationals regardless of the birth country. We, thereby grant dual citizenship AND violate the 14th amendment.
