Scalia: Limitations to right to bear arms


Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. (UPI/Roger L. Wollenberg)

WASHINGTON (UPI) -- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Sunday the Constitution allows for limitations to a person's right to bear arms.

In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Scalia said future cases will have to determine whether the Constitution permits citizens to "keep and bear" semiautomatic weapons or magazines carrying 100 rounds, like those used in the theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., last week.

"Some [limits] undoubtedly are [permissible], because there were some that were acknowledged at the time" the Constitution was written, he said.

He pointed to a law at the time against what was called afrighting, "which, if you carried around a really horrible weapon just to scare people, like a head ax or something, that was, I believe, a misdemeanor," Scalia said.

"So yes, there are some limitations that can be imposed. What they are will depend on what the society understood was reasonable limitation," he added.

Teens' chief job is to reveal something about themselves in a well-composed piece of writing. What an applicant writes about isn't nearly as important as how it's presented. The son of a friend of mine, for instance, wrote about his love of pickles in his essay, and he ended up at Yale. custom essay

And there is a younger group, born arnoud 1960, who feel way out of touch with the Baby Boomer meme but are not quite sure if they are Gen-X either. What do we call them?Matt Groening coined the term "wedgie" generation. Several friends and I have adopted that. If you were born from 1958 to 1968, you are a wedgie--for being wedged between Boomers and X-ers.One guy calls it Generation Jones for some dumb ass reason (and he moves it too far forward-from 1955 to 1965.)Whatever you call us, we hate being lumped in with boomers or with X-ers. We are, as a group, disproportionately libertarian and tend to be very cynical of both boomer idealism and X-er angst.We remember the last gasp of the non-nanny state in the late 70s and early 80s. We were, by and large, left to our own devices. (I'll never forget how uncontrolling my high school was--that isn't to say kids didn't do dumb things, but there was none of the zero tolerance over reaction crap.)You could also buy Playboy off the magazine rack and buy smokes for your parents. The drinking age was still 18 in many places and it was acceptable for parents to let their kids have parties at their house so they wouldn't get into trouble elsewhere. It was, to me, the last gasp of a healthy society.We've also observed that most people who fit the wedgie profile have parents who weren't boomers (i.e. parents were born before 1945.)
