Justice Breyer: "Get On A Subway And Go To Maryland"

Justice Stephen Breyer was on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. They discussed the history and intent of the Second Amendment (and Breyer's interpretation of it).

The money quote was when he said to Chris Wallace, "Are you a sportsman? Do you like to shoot pistols at targets? Well then get on the subway and go to Maryland. There is no problem!" This was in reference to Wallace noting that there is still an effective ban on handguns in the District of Columbia.

I just love how cavalier Justice Breyer appears in his discussion of the Second Amendment. There is no problem except that it is a fundamental right enshrined in the Bill of Rights. To have a sitting Associate Justice of the Supreme Court utterly dismissing my rights as an American just galls me to no end.

Lest we forget, Justice Breyer was Bill Clinton's gift to American jurisprudence. While we don't have to worry about any more Clinton appointments, we still must worry about Obama and any future appointments by him.

H/T Gateway Pundit

Update: Fox has posted a story on this interview. You can read it here. It will still make you mad. Cam Edwards says he intends to rebut it point by point on his show tomorrow.

Update II: Fox has posted the full interview. I have embedded it if you want to view it.


  1. Wow. What a douche bag.

    Can't get an abortion in Texas? Well just get on an airplane and fly to Maryland! No problem there right?

    He makes absolutely no effort in defending his position other than "too bad, I don't like it"

  2. Doesn't the DC law prohibit firearms (even cased) on the metro?

    He's just FOS.

  3. Just more reason why the power of the House to Impeach these corrupt and Constitution Loathing bastards, should be at the forefront of the 112th congress.
