Justice Scalia Promotes Gun Sales

He didn’t mean to do it (at least I don’t think he did), but Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is the best thing that ever happened to gun ownership in America. In an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox, Justice Scalia said that “the Second Amendment leaves open the possibility of gun-control legislation, adding to what has become a slow-boiling debate on the issue since the Colorado movie theater massacre earlier this month.”

You know what everybody is thinking. If the Supreme Court might rule to limit gun ownership sometime in the future, gun sales are going to go through the roof. In fact, after posting this article, I’m going to purchase a 4”-barrel .357 Mag revolver to add to my collection. I’ve got my conceal carry permit. I refuse to be left defenseless.

Stories are coming out about mobs attacking people and businesses. While the economy is lukewarm, what will happen when we enter into depression territory? The media are propping up the economy in order to get Obama a second term. If Romney wins, the media will turn sour on the economy and talk it down like they did when George H. W. Bush was president.

A story out of Chicago (naturally) describes the actions of a flash mob:

After posting surveillance video of a flash mob robbery online and sharing the video with CBS 2 News, a Wicker Park store owner said he and police have received several tips about the group of about 20 teens responsible for stealing more than $3,000 worth of jeans over the weekend.

Teenagers with nothing to lose and the cover of accomplices are growing bolder:

[T]hese crimes are being organized by young teenagers through various social media outlets, most notably Twitter. Police say the suspects select a time and place and enter the store in droves taking what they want and leaving before security or police can catch them.

Some of the most brazen robberies take place in the light of day and on busy streets despite all the security cameras and the watchful eyes of workers. . . .

The pack mentality emboldens the thieves to strike fast, so fast that the store clerks don’t have time to react. “Over 90 percent of crimes committed by young people are done so in a group,” Scott Decker a professor of criminology at Arizona State University, told FoxNews.com

The police can't be everywhere. Thugs don't go where the cops are. They go where there are victims . . . where the pickings are easy.  We know that self-defense with guns works, and so do the criminals. “No one knows how often guns are used for self defense. The Cato Institute says anywhere from 100,000 to one million times a year.”

If the court rules that gun ownership can be limited, these young criminals will be even bolder. It’s time that we prepare for what could be. Never say, “It can’t happen here.” It is happening here

If criminals get the idea that at any given time 10 percent of the population is armed, they’ll think twice about committing a crime.

We should thank Justice Scalia for the heads up.

    Maybe he was giving a heads up, to what he sees as possibly happening if God forbid something happens to the few Conservatives left on the bench..After all looks like the rest have no concern for the Constitution after what they did to Healthcare.

          This country does not ask God to intervene in tragedy. They spit in his face and tell Him to go away. Then evil moves in to fill the void.

        • RescueKyron

          WOW! HH you summarized the facts very well. Christians know enough about the fighting for freedom and establishment of our country to know He was with us. We enabled people to worship God in their own choice of religion. Originally people came here to escape religious persecution and through the years up to the War of Independence and through the Constitution and other documents, worship of God was protected, Freedom OF religion, not intended as Freedom FROM religion. There's the rub. Christians let the reins slack too much. Cults weren't happy living their lives and worshiping as they preferred, oh no, they had to bite the hand that fed them and pushed themselves into positions of power and control in our government and society. Cults that hate Jesus Christ and teach our kids that like our Constitution, Christianity is old and useless... while THEIR religion is the right one but membership is restricted. We have turned the country over to people who hate Jesus Christ, who hate the pledge, who hate morality, marriage, innocence, education, and everything of character or good. So, waddaya expect to happen in the woild other than the filth in our society and destruction of our children? Evil is rampant and infested Eve's seed in the Garden with various dings that are pronounced in each race. Christians reform all races that join. Christians have been fooled and did not resist Satan who slipped in and destroyed American family, children, society, education, and climbed through government to perch with authority of evil. American Christians better not vote to turn this country over to non-Christians. The consequences will be realized quickly. We have a chance to beg for forgiveness and to change, for mothers to return to their homes and take care of their children, for fathers to protect their families, to return responsibility for education to the States where the parents, grandparents, have control of what is taught and by whom. That is the cornerstone of a civilized society that has the strength to face anything and not be destroyed. Speak out for Ron Paul and ignore the devils who hate what he is promising to do as President. Vote for him, he is a Christian American, an OBGYN who delivered 4000 new Americans into this country, a USA Air Force Veteran, a respected Congressman, loyal husband, good father and grandfather, reliable friend, relative, and the list goes on.

          I know there are Christians on this board that are vigilant, prepared and courageous.
          Sadly, there are others that use their religious garb to cloak cowardice and apathy.
          Their pastors use Romans 13 to demand unquestioning obedience to all governmental decrees and imperial edicts. Often they do not get involved in the arts or politics. They have been expecting a Rapture for their own small group for decades (google Harold Camping and 2011)!!
          If you want to introduce the invading crackhead to God, well, there is a quicker way to reach their hearts. At about 950 FPS!
          If you want to have an unarmed prayer meeting with the attacking flash mob at the county fair, or if a want to practice peaceful interfaith dialogue with the home invader in your waning moments of consciousness, knock yourself out!

    • winki

      I haven't seen pictures of the flash mobs doing this and it may be all black kids, but it's NOT just the black kids who have no disciplline and no morals. There are a lot of white kids out there just as out of control and disrespectful as any others. Parents have got to start teaching their kids right from wrong.
      This all started when both parents had to work to make a living leaving their children alone to entertain themselves. And the children raised up this way are doing the same with their children because they don't know any other way.
      I don't see an end to this until we get inflation under control and quit being a "ME" society. We try to give our kids everything we never had as kids and there's no end in sight. We have to have more and more. Used to be called "Keeping up with the Jones's ".

      • jb

        "...both parents had to work..." Wrong, when it all started in the 70's, it wasn't because both HAD to work, it was the Fems who said women SHOULD work and let the State mother their offspring!

        • AlbertstheMan

          Why do you think the government has taxation and the middle class has lost so much? Both parents are forced to work and the gubmint schools educate and indoctrinate your children. Single mother households don't offer much discipline either. Another gubmint democRAT plan.

          How is that working out for America?

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bill-Strickland/1603658279 Bill Strickland

          my mother worked all my life since i was 5. I stayed home after school alone. Im not running around robbing, or even thinking of doing so. Never have. i had assigned projects to do after school on most days. Didnt have much extra time. And In the summers, cut yards, washed windows, and cars around the neighborhood for spending cash. One acre yard got me $5. Car was was $1 Windows on house got 85-95 cents per hour. WAshing your dog was 75 cents, and cleaning your old nasty swimming pool of trash and critters living in it, washing the whole thing and gettin in there in my blue jeans to do so, cost you 8-10 dollars and took most of a day. I thought I was rich!!!

      • jimshaw54

        In many instances both parents didn't HAVE to go to work. Many of them chose to go to work so that they could live in bigger houses and have the "things" they want. In other words, they weren't willing to sacrifice so that their children could come home to a home, rather than to a house where neither parent was there, or to a baby-sitter.
        I sacrificed so that I could stay home so that my children could come running into the house from school and have mom there to greet them, and be there to see all of the wonderful things they accomplished that day in school. With children you can't schedule teaching them about life. You have to be there when those teaching moments come up, usually at the most unexpected times and in the most unexpected places. Too many kids today don't have that. As a result they gather in packs, and with no adult leadership they act like savages.

        correction: women who CHOSE to work outside the home to get more trinkets, or ti live in more house than they really needed. Priorities got twisted, the whole "keeping up with the Jones' " was substitutied for raising your children godly amd moral. Direct result of the "feminism" craze we "welcomed" as a culture. THIS is the fruit of it. Hope it tastes good....

        Its not just the parents, its society in general.

Its awful. Hell, I'm only 30 & I never dreamed of acting in such a way. Its not cool at all, its just disgusting

        its not just black kids its white as well the majorty of both races are from dead beat parents that are on welfare an food stamps or ssi because they are to lazy to work and they teach their kids to follow their footsteps i know numerous people like thati know several that has raisedseveral famlies that way and taught their kids that and their dam grandkids to follow their path several went to jail for dope and still drew ssi while in lockup plus the deadbeats get 100 percent free medical care at the working folks expense and there isnt a dam thing wrong with them

      you mean, Obama sez: if I had a son, he would look a lot like the Chicago flash mob critters".

      Funny thing, Chicago seems to be the headquarters of these flash mobs, but has anyone made any connnexionn between this and Chicago's insane gun laws? If ten percent of the residents of Chicago were armed lawfully, and began to take action against these dangerous assaults, they'd end in a hurry. Fact is, so far, no consequences, so they continue. Maybe, time to serialise those bluejeans, eash store owner has a record of what HE has in inventory, mob cleans him out, those numbers go out.. anyone caught wearing any of those jeans later gets a possession of stolen property bust, and a real up close and personal comparison with the security video from the raid.... and if identified, a bigger bust for the raid. Oh, but Chicago don't have the guts to do that..... we can't prosecute those poor lil angels, that'd be RACISM, right? Sho 'nuff... and good on em, I say.

      Of course, there is no prohibition agains the ownership of long guns.... a twelve bore with number four in a three inch shell, improved cylinder choke, would be the best solution for such raids....... a raid like that, taking three thousand bucks' worth of property would be in the felony crime category, for sure.

        Chicago is the Poster Child for Liberal mindset pushed on reality.
        They have accepted every liberal program to come down the line since 61, and have paid dearly for it.
        Union Laws made the businesses go under, and the Handouts have kept the city alive (if you call it that) ever since. We're talking about a major US city (or formerly Major) that has a problem with Bears! The infrastructure is rusting apart, and the only thing you hear out of the media there is how they need MORE Democrats in office to provide More Handouts to keep things on a downward spiral.(or how evil all the other cities around are, for not Sharing with them ROFL)

    • alio

      It's more because too many kids have only one parent. Kids need a mom and a dad to teach and love them. Kids seem to be an inconvenience to some, but they keep going out spreading their legs to anything, knowing what could happen.

      Children from a stable family are less likely to be in gangs and cause problems. That's why, they need a mom & dad, not two moms or two dads. ' This is not Gods design.'

    Disconcerting
    as many Americans may find the erosion of the Second Amendment guarantee, what
    is even more disturbing is that five people have the power to decide whether
    United States citizens have the right to protect themselves and their families,
    to what degree, and with what weapons. The Supreme Court has ruled that
    Americans have the right to bear arms, but only until they say otherwise.... If
    you look to the Second Amendment for your authority to bear arms, that
    authority is contingent upon the fickle nature of nine fallible human
    beings. For
    more, see "Amendment 2: Self-Defense: Constitutional or Biblical?" at
    http://www.missiontoisrael.org/biblelaw-constitutionalism-pt12.php.

    We
    are at the very beginning of what perhaps is the most significant paradigm
    shift in America's history (besides perhaps the 17th-century Puritans
    establishing their Colonial governments upon God's law). America is
    beginning to recognize her national idol that like Gideon of old must be
    repented of before we can regain Christian dominion of our nation. Our darkest
    hour will prove to be our brightest moment. I offer as proof a radio interview
    Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America conducted with me on
    December 31, 2011. You can listen to or download it from Gun Owner's of

      I was sorely disappointed with that interview. I certainly do not think that Scalia did us any favors. It seems even Scalia is scared of obama's regime. He was telling us what we all know is coming, the liberal shutdown of our the Second Amendment rights, and at the same time provided justification for it. I am sick of conservatives in government and corporations bowing down to the liberal agenda. Not one of them has any guts. We all saw how justice Roberts cowered down. I will do everything in my power to replace every single liberal, progressive that I can. I suggest we all send obama and his ilk a message in November and fire them all. Time to take back our country and rid ourselves of the perverts and liberal leeches.

      Then we rid ourselves of the RINOs once and for all that do more harm than good.

    That is one of basic rights to protect ourselves against all comers.
    NO new laws will prevent mass shooting no way no how and sadly that is a fact.
    As I have said if NOBODY picks up a gun nothing will happen so the gun doesn't do the killing the humans do so what we have to do is pass laws (lol) to demand people that are not well balanced to go and seek help and once they are told what they have to do to stay balanced do it or else another (lol).
    The same as anything else like cigarette smoking if nobody smokes nobody will die from doing so but if the stupid human picks up the cigarette and smokes and kills a lot of innocent people all around them there are no laws to stop them because there is Freedom of Choice to do so. except in buildings and Thank God there is law to stop that from happening.

  • Robert Courtney

    1st off, i don't think Scalia meant firearms hat can be carried and used as self defense tools.
    He makes it very plain he meant regulations for WMDs.
    "But, we have laws of that already"!
    No, we don't.
    Although there re policies and such REGULATING heavy weapons, there aren't any laws that have been ruled Constitutional.
    Why does that matter?
    because in THIS day and age, we are being forced to litagate the Constitutionality of many "laws". I believe we are about to see the end of "Affirmative Action" laws and policies as SCOTUS has a couple of cases on the docket. Affirmative action and "hate crime" laws have never been litigated to SCOTUS.
    Constitution says "Equal Protection Under the Law". Affirmative action and Hate Crimes certainly are NOT equal Protection.
    But on the firearms issue, I think that SCOTUS may rule on that, soon. And I don't think the 2nd amendment is going to remain unscathed, but I do think self defense sidearms will survive it (although the 2nd amendment also says Militia, which means bigger weapons than sidearms. Militias protect a society, not your person.).
    Scalia is simple saying that there WILL be a SCOTUS ruling on it, NOT what it will be.
    Liberals are running wild on this, trying to further the meme that Scalia meant more regulations are Constitutional. Uh Uh, don't you believe that.
    Watch and see.

Perhaps some gun group needs to change their name to Well Regulated Militia, everyone volunteers for a test, not Gov't sponsored either, and walla we have met the Constitutional requirement and then we can tell them to shove it.

    Um,no,scalia is wrong. The second amendment does NOT leave open the possibility of gun control legislation. By its very working the 2nd amendment PROHIBITS gun control legislation. The problem is that legislators and judges are either to stupid to understand it or (more likely) to tyranical to follow it. Yes. I am saying that if a judge, legislator, or president wants to take away my guns just because, then they are a tyrant. Why am I saying that? Because I'm not the type to lie. The 2nd amendment is very clear and there is no need nor room for interpretation. Shall not be infringed means shall not freaking be infringed.

  • Reality Check

    Everybody -- even the smart ones, it would seem -- are reading FAR too much into what Scalia said. What the Gary DeMars and the like fail to realize, or remember, is that Scalia is a SITTING Supreme Court Associate Justice. A judge cannot proclaim how he/she will rule on future cases of say, abortion or, in this case, gun control. If he/she did proclaim loudly that any case before the court would receive this or that vote from the justice, then ethically, the justice would have to recuse him/herself from any said cases coming before the court in the future. I read Scalia's comments totally different. He very cleverly allowed the liberal argument some leeway, while not betraying how he might vote on such cases. The key is when he mentions going back to the beginning to determine "original intent" of the founders. A plain reaading of the founders' thoughts on gun possession shows the founders intended for the private citizen to be armed if they so chose. Finally, I challenge anyone to show me a vote by Scalia during his tenure as a SCOTUS justice which would show that he has ANY tendencies towards confiscatory gun conttol. We live in the Age of Paranoia, and rightfully so, but don't let your paranoia get in the way of your good sense. Scalia has been , along with Thomas, the most reliable vote on SCOTUS for the originialist conservative view. I see no reason to believe he won't continue to be.

    Sadly I think the comments by 'packing' are what is needed to stop this type of behavior . These mobs have been emboldened by this administration and our current DOJ . They feel they can do as they please when they please . Groups attack people o the street for no reason as well as mob stores . It would seem the inmates now control the asylum . Yes thin the herd , let God sort it out and let the Gang of Thugs in Washington live with it !

    explaining getting shot by an old white woman would not put you to high on the pecking order in jail. You would be one level up from a child molester

    We must fight and get those out of office that want more gun laws It will be like when they went after cigs and moved to to fats now. If they get the ammo we can still make our on but they want stop there. And roberts and be bribed it looks like and you know the libs will go for him. I guess he got his 30 peaces for his health vote and no telling what for his atti gun vote. The gop put romney up sp we would be stuck with obambo again. So we have to put as many conservative in as fast as we can the them. And i dont mean rep just in name

    "Justice Scalia said that “the Second Amendment leaves open the possibility of gun-control legislation,"

    Excuse me Scalia, but the Second Amendment to the Constitution very clearly states: A WELL REGULATED MILITIA, BEING NECESSARY TO THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

    So I ask you, what part of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" escapes your comprehension? Allow me to explain something to you.... ANY AND ALL GUN-CONTROL LEGISLATION is an INFRINGEMENT. Also, Mr. Justice, if you will note, no where in the Constitution does it limit we the people as to the number of guns, the type of guns or the amount of ammunition we may possess.

    I also strongly advise you and the rest of the nit wits on the SCOTUS to look up and read the DICK ACT of 1902. It will educate you.

    I recently gave up my job as a Lose prevention Officer for a major security company. I gave it up for two reasons, no three! First off it is not only teens working in groups but the professional Shoplifters. the y are well orchestrated and come in groves of 15 to 20 adults and kids. One is the distractor who makes a causes a commotion that draws everyone's attention while the rest, including their children stuff items into their bags and down their pants. Unless you actually see what they took you can not stop them. They know exactly how to block your view and pass things off to one another. The biggest thieves arrive here from Brazil for shop lifting sprees. They smile in your face as they leave.
    Second reason; I have worked Armed Security in mostly low income apartment complexes and I can tell you this if I did not have a gun and a night stick and a knife for back-up, plus the protection of God's Angels, I would not be writing this tonight. I have been threatened weekly and some times more. If it were not for the children who liked me and watched my back I would have been taken out numerous times. They respected me because I watched out for them, they have no choice in where they live. Crime is increasing very fast, and respect for authority is mostly none existent. My last 2 weeks as a Security Officer at one of these apartment units a Teen boy was shot in the face and died on the street by another teen boy who was supposed to be his friend. They were in drugs together. I know this, but the other tenants will not turn in the shooter. They all bragged about being able to get guns when ever they needed them. Outlaw guns and the Outlaws, Gang Leaders, Drug Lords, and Gangsters will always have them. Outlaw guns and you just started a whole new Black Market for guns. Citizens will not have a chance.
    Third reason; Having worked these places and been involved with breaking up drug gangs, and being a part what happens every week-end when I had to call in the Police and Sheriffs departments, I realized that it was a waste of time and effort to try to bring servility to a right here in Lakeland, FL

    WELL:: All I can say is if you have a gun LOCK AND LOAD if you do not have a gun go buy one buy ammo then LOCK AND LOAD.!!

    I don't believe they are organized by young teenagers through social media. I think they're getting their orders via social media. I believe they're being organized by someone who is trying to create fear in the general public. I believe that with all the mob thefts and beatings of white people across the country, it's suspicious that noone has been seriously harmed. Whoever is running this show has made it clear that the violence is only intended to scare people.

    It's sad that there wasn't someone armed at the Colorado movie,they could have ended a scum bag life,and save some people,and a lot of money.

    Exactly! Like if two or three legal concealed carry guys had carried ankle weapons into the theatre!? Like the guy who was going to become a SEAL? They could have nipped that ' joker' in the bud, as Barney says! No telling how many lives could have been saved!!

  • quipster

    I think I need more guns, still don't have enough!!!!!!

  • scratchman

    The Second Amendment explicitly CLOSES OFF the possibility of gun-control legislation - that's what "shall not be infringed" means. Justice Scalia apparently is not the conservative he poses as.

  • SallyE

    If Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama wins another term we can all kiss the Second Amendment good-bye. Vote as if your life depends on it. It does.

  • Law-abiding gun owner

    GUNS WILL BE CONFISCATED! Just like in Australia.

  • Law-abiding gun owner

    RE:Traphill25
    WRONG! Gun were confiscated last year in Austrailia and gun crimes are up by people who know almost everyone is disarmed. Gun criminals most likely have stolen illegal guns.

    There must be a way to acquire firearms out of the sight of the government. I don't trust them to abide by the constitution anyway. It may be the only hedge against tyranny. Licensing and paperwork means they know what you have.
    "When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” Thomas Jefferson"

    Haven't seen a flash mob here in Dallas yet. When folks try to rob stores or businesses down here, they generally make the news. As in: "Store Owner Shoots & Kills Suspect During Attempted Robbery" or "Customer Shoots & Kills Robbery Suspect." They want to try that flash mob crap down here, they can count on getting 45 caliber holes punched in their lazy, sorry behinds. The video from Chicago showed the mob was very diverse - blacks, whites, and others in the posse. Since I moved back to Texas from DC in 2007, lots of robbers have paid the ultimate price for being "un ladron tonto." Why waste all that money and time on a trial and give some silver-tongued ambulance-chaser a chance to get an obviously guilty person off on some technicality that only another ambulance-chaser understands? Especially when .45 rounds only cost about $0.30 apiece.
