Stanford law prof: Second Amendment is about restricting gun rights

“It’s fanciful to think that guns in the hands of citizens acts as a realistic check,” said Donohue. “They’re not really trained to do so. And it’s fanciful to think that the military would ever turn on U.S. citizens.”

A Stanford University law professor took the view that the Second Amendment permits strong gun control, telling the crowd that “restriction has to be at the core” of the right to carry a gun.

John J. Donohue, a member of the Stanford Law School faculty, made his remarks during a debate with attorney Donald Kilmer, an adjunct professor at Lincoln Law School of San Jose.

“I support the right to self-defense,” said Donohue during the debate, according to The Stanford Review. “But that doesn’t mean that you have a right to high-capacity magazines.”

yes you do not have the right to high capacity magazines to defend your self, but your attackers do...

so you loose,,, grate thought for a idiot, but any one with a single functioning brain cell will disagree.

the only ones that need to have gun limits are the ones in Big Government if we the people are limited then those limits must also apply to all Government,,,

  how about that as a correction to the constitution , any limit put on we the people must be also the same on all government agencies police and military,,,

That's a really great thought, Denis,,,, anything to weaken the people down to the gov level. That encourages foreign communist countries to push or attack and take over our great country. Why would I want to lower me self to the lower grade level of the US gov. No thank you, I'll pick another to provide solutions, suggestions for my countries future, thank you!

Herbert,,,, Denis,,,, guys how long are "We the People" going to PLAY these word games while socialism and communism work effectively to overthrow our Capitalistic, freedom way of life?

What's wrong with adding a little spice to your life's? Why not join me in the battle to recover our great country,,,, before we completely loose it. Think that will never happen? Just look. Around! Rather than uttering those cute, clever "apples" and becoming part of the idle do-nothing sit on their ass bunch while our great country gets flushed down the commie tube.
Get up,,,, let's GO!

I have a constitutional battle going. Why not support it? Just check out the latest UPDATES on my blog. If I can get up to the Washington State Supreme Court, it will have to break out into the media. Then we can get our government employees back into abiding by our Supreme Law of the Land. Scroll down to the January 24, UPDATE:

I fully endorse this suggestion! Write, write write emails and letters to your respective Congressmen and Senators! Inundate them with so much input that to deviate from their oak of office

Let them know we are coming to DC on 16 May and if that does not get their attention, we will be back in DC, but we will not be nice.

Mr. Elliot. I have thought deeply about the gathering in DC...I believe it is the right position to take,however.I have come to the conclusion that it may turn into more than expected, before expected. We will be unarmed, they won't!! They may very well have a "plan" to make it look like WE THE PEOPLE started an armed conflict.

I believe those in power will go "beyond" to keep their positions. This gathering of patriotic Americans may very well be the act that brings martial law and our second revolution.

I stand firm in my liberty as afforded by our constitution and will go "beyond" to defend that right

I feel a bloody conflict is coming!!
Isn't May, 17 armed forces day?

You just might be right.  You might want to plan on coming on 17 May.   What a difference a day will make.

Willing and ready..... from 2000 yards, dial and drop

Like music to my  ears.

that is OK I think we need to add a few more to the constitution like

taxes may be collected on increase and sales taxes only no other tax allowed. 

all taxes are to be a percentage with a single deduction for every person , no additional deductions,

IE Taxes are on your increase, flat percentage a deduction ( the same for every one that will cover the cost of living, )

simplify tax code and eliminate further taxes.

return big Federal Government to the roll of defending our rights from States and Counties and Cities not taking them away.

Prof. Donohue has a reading comprehension problem.  "Shall NOT" means, "Of course we can".  Typical "professor non-think!"

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
