#rsrh Joking aside, armed robbery is terrifying.

And while there may be some situational irony in the fact that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer – a guy who once wrote that “there simply is no untouchable constitutional right guaranteed by the Second Amendment to keep loaded handguns in the house in crime-ridden urban areas” – just got robbed at swordpoint*,  his wife and guests didn’t write that particular US Supreme Court dissent.  We should show some delicacy towards them, at least.

Yes, I’m a big meanie.

    Irony Can get you killed.

  • Bob Stovall says:

    Justice Breyer is one of those elite thinkers that believes that rights are ‘CONVEYED’ FROM the government TO the Governed.

    He hasn’t quite caught onto the concept embodied in the following bit of Jefferson’s prose from the Declaration of Independence: “all men are created equal, …they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, … among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ”

    In other words, when the governed can no longer count upon those charged with the duty to protect and preserve those rights, then their sorry asses can be replaced.

    Y’know, it’s stuff like this that make me wonder if I’m wrong about God.


  • BCochran1981 says:

    Acat, it’s stuff like this that confirms to me that I’m right about God, and that he has a seriously wicked sense of humor.

  • Darin H says:

    People were blessed with a sense of humor. Man is made in God’s image. Therefore, God has a perfect version of a sense of humor.

    And to quote Larry the Cable Guy, “I don’t care who ya are, that’s funny right there.”

  • DanB says:

    Well, if a Conservative is just a Liberal who’s been mugged, then we’ve just seen a substantial shift on the Supreme Court.

    (Yeah, I know, but I can wish)

  • Earlgrey says:

    DanB, I was wishing the same thing for about 15 seconds today, but if it is one thing liberals great at it is rationalizing awy evil.

    This from a man who most likely lives in either a gated community or a building with security guards. When reality intersects liberal hypocrisy…

  • Brian Swisher says:

    Huh. I notice in the article that other justices who have been crime victims are from the…left end of the court. Perhaps the baddies figure that Thomas and Scalia are packing heat…

    “Is that a Real Big Knife, or are Ya’ just glad to see me….??”
    YO!, Stevie,…Baby!!!, get a gun or a clue, but go get something!
    What was Steve’s opener? “Do YOU KNOW who the Hell I AM…”? {I’m Shakin’, Mon!}
