The regret of pro-second amendment Senators who support Sotomayor coming to an election booth near you.

Traditionally, once a Justice to the Supreme Court is confirmed and takes the oath of office, the second guessing ends. That will not be the case with Justice Sonia Sotomayor.The Supreme Court will be hearing numerous important cases when the Court returns into session, including a large second amendment case, a crucial freedom of speech case, and a do or die economics case.

While the freedom of speech & economic cases are very intriguing, the important second amendment case could shape America for decades to come. Perhaps even more important then the Heller case which confirmed the Individual right to keep & to bear arms.

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.

While Conservatives attempt to preserve the second amendment, liberals are always developing a new talking point to combat the second amendment, the latest one is dubious at best, that the states & local communities can ban guns because the Constitution applies only to the federal levels.

Considering all Americans, no matter which state they reside in, have the right to bear arms, which shall not be infringed, any highschool drop can understand that - All Americans have the right to bear arms, which shall not be infringed by anyone, whether at the federal, state, or local government level, that right to bear arms still remains, it can no more be banned then the freedom of speech.

If the Supreme Court ruled on the side of second amendment in this crucial case, it would declare all gun bans illegal, as no-one has the authority or right to tell an American citizen anything in regards to owning arms. Some might claim the tenth amendment, let me refresh your memory - "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the state respectively, or to the people" = second amendment is a delegated right to the American people, to be protected by the federal government, no-one can touch it.

That's the way it was intended, that's the way it should be.

The said Constitution shall be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms - Samuel Adams.

Sotomayor has ruled the second amendment means nothing to the states, when all states that join the Union - enter into a contract with the Constitution, can we expect any better from Sotomayor on the mentioned above second amendment case? No.

I also wanted to offer my deepest condemnation of Republicans Senators Voinovich & Lugar, who both voted against the right to carry amendment which was brought up in the United States Senate, which would have allowed legal law-abiding Americans to defend themselves with their arms, following local laws in 48 states across America. The second amendment applies to all states, the people have the right to bear arms & defend themselves in all states as well.

This is an American right, not a state-by-sate right.

Those who dare call themselves pro-second amendment, then voted for Sotomayor, Republican or Democrat, watch out for the backlash.

First, allow me to commend you blog post for getting right an important point that so many people fail to understand.

As you say, States rights are NOT infringed when the Federal government upholds its responsibility to guarantee the rights of American citizens.

These are NOT pure States rights vs. Federal power issues, but rather reflect a tri-partite hierarchy of: Individual rights, then States rights, and finally Federal powers except where delegated specifically. This last includes the responsibility to protect individual rights from state abuse.
