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!"

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.


“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
