If anyone was still under the impression that – at least – since Marbury v Madison that any and all judges were “impartial” and selected to simply rule on cases where there was an honest difference of opinion on a matter of law, this should put it to rest.
This isn’t how the founders wanted the courts to be, but this is how it got twisted when people understood the political power that the courts had grabbed unto themselves. Kinda like it was a plan.
So, this is the game and the rules are what you can do to your political enemy and what you can keep him from doing to you.
The courts are simply to try and keep things from disintegrating to open warfare.
Democrat presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg is pledging to appoint pro-gun control judges if elected to the White House.
Bloomberg revealed this promise in a December 1, 2019, Chicago Tribune op-ed.
He wrote, “As president, I will appoint judges who understand that the Second Amendment allows for common sense limits on gun ownership.”
On November 11, 2019, Breitbart News reported some of the “common sense” gun controls Bloomberg and his gun control groups, Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action, support. They include criminalizing private gun sales via universal background checks, banning “assault weapons,” banning “high capacity” magazines, expanding the prohibited purchasers’ list for firearm purchases, putting more anti-straw purchase laws in place, and launching a war on gun shows.
He also wants laws that empower judges to issue orders for the confiscation of firearms, and his gun control groups actively oppose national reciprocity for concealed carry and the passage of campus carry for self-defense.
