Supreme Court Justice and Gun Advocate Antonin Scalia Dies

It is a sad day for all conservatives and gun rights supporters. On February 13th, 2016 Antonin Scalia was found dead at the Cibolo Creek ranch in Texas after a hunting trip.

Antonin was a long time advocate for the second amendment and wrote the decision in the D.C. V. Heller case in 2008. The most significant ruling on guns in the last decade, the supreme court ruled, in a 5/4 vote, that the constitution protects an individual's rights to own a firearm for personal use. The decision struck down a decades old handgun ban on handgun possession and storage in Washington D.C.

Some of the justices felt that the 2nd amendment only was created to ensure states could form militias to combat an overly powerful government if necessary. Scalia disagreed saying, “Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.”

The POTUS maintains the ability to appoint new justices to the Supreme Court with congress's approval. President Obama has already appointed two members to the Supreme Court. If permitted to place a third this could be devastating for gun owners. The next president very well could appoint 2-4 new members to the Supreme Court considering the current ages of it's members. This year's election is more important than ever.

      My guess IF it isn’t HIM who he views as perfection in all things worldly [hate to see what his afterlife is comprised of] He will chose a far left LBGT minority Muslim/hHndu woan or TRANSEXUAL or whatever new designation they have for perverted freakenzoids ANYTHING but a NORMAL Conservative person be they white or black.

      Sure he will, just to show upthe Senate when then ignore his nominee—that is, if McConnell doesn’t cave.

    Who said that Justice Scalia went to the Texas Ranch voluntarily? If he flew there on a jet owned by Poindexter, landed on air strip owned by Poindexter, was murdered, then left after immediately being embalmed, after being pronounced dead by natural causes over the phone, by a judge never seeing the body, this is as obvious as it gets! Scalia was murdered! Somebody had better not let this murder go unsettled! As a citizen, and a taxpayer, I demand this entire mess be investigated by an impartial team of investigators! It is blatantly obvious that this good man was murdered by a pal of obamas! They had everything to gain, and it is a sickening chain of events! What is wrong with our system of justice, when a murder so obvious is hushed up so fast?

      A chopper with Seal Team 6 members, shot from the sky by a well placed RPG? Convenient?
      The clerk from Hawaii? Involved in the phony birth certificate? The one person left in a sunken plane when all others survived?? Coincidence?
      And now – A pro 2nd Amendment Supreme Court Justice, suddenly dead, away from home, and witnesses? No investigation, No autopsy, No questions, “Boxed up and buried??? Too bizarre!!!
      Kinda reminds one of the “Magic Bullet” from the Kennedy assassination doesn’t it?
      Now, should the new appointee be an anti gun, progressive, questions should be asked and answers DEMANDED!!!

    The disgusting thing about the whole Justice Scalia death mystery to me, is the fact that we have this man, who worked his way up through the system legally, and honestly, and he was a brilliant man, deserving of everything he accomplished! Then you have this fraudulent foreign born liar, and cheater, this pathetic con artist that was placed in the White House by seedy global elitists, and domestic radical terrorist like Bill Ayers, and Bernadine Dohrn! Obama was planted to destroy America! He applied for and received foreign student financial aid for college, a very heavily scrutinized application, when back then people of integrity were doing that job. So my question is, was Obama a fraud then, or when he was inaugurated? You remember, when he swore an oath to uphold, and defend the constitution? Every POTUS that swears that same oath, should never vilify a Supreme Court Justice that is a strict Constitutionalist! Obama goes further when he not only publicly expressed sustain for Justice Scalia, but had him murdered!

    I quit worrying about gun control years ago, along with gun removal. As soon as this sort of thing starts, it would spread like wild fire and the next civil war would began. I not worried about the military or the police concidering their ability to fight. The police are out numbered and aren’t really very good against an army of shooters. One shooter and 10 cops, they might have a chance, but remember North Hollywood a few years back and that only 2 shooters. The last thing the police what are uneven odds and gorilla warfare. They just aren’t trained for that kind of a fight. So relax, and if it comes to that, so be it

      Rob, Thanks for bringing this up because I have been thinking of the same thing. I heard, but can’t confirm it, that the Half Breed had a “secret meeting” with Justice Scalia the night before he died. I heard it on one of the news channels but there’s been no mention of it since. If he did have the meeting, what was it about? Why was it kept secret? Scalia was a big thorn in the Half Breed’s side so any meeting they may or may not have had certainly needs to be investigated since he died of “natural causes” during the night after this meeting.

      I can’t that there would not be any more investigation of his death since he was capable of hunting the day before and didn’t complain of any health conditions. What were the causes of his death? Was an autopsy done? If not why?

      There are just too many questions going unanswered for be to believe that that foul play was not involved. I have never trusted that POS sitting in OUR White House.
