'Scuse me. I don't quite get the point of anything odd about "...conservatives are all of a sudden in favor of the courts stepping in to protect personal liberties."
Well, the "all of a sudden" part, is odd. That is, I always thought courts have an obligation to protect personal liberties. How is that a liberal or conservative premise?
SFAIK, it is more a liberal view than a conservative view as to the Constitution being a "living document" and favoring judicial activism. Okay, that's just political philosopy. Different strokes for different folks. But, aren't personal liberties supposed to NOT be a function of one's political views?
Thread already started:
Let's try to keep it all in one place.
Fine, but is this thread about the gun ban decision, per se, or about the doings of the judiciary?
Do we really need two threads on the same subject?
