Response to A HERETIC I AM (Reply #9)

44. Wow! I guess demagogue-ing the issue raises more money

Sen. Murphy is certainly smart enough to know that none of the restrictions he has proposed would have prevented this tragedy.

He is also smart enough to know that once the SC has spoken, it takes an Amendment to fix things. Laws can't override the Constitution on the 2nd any more than they can on the 1st or any other. Reasonable restrictions are in place. People need to accept the court's interpretation on this, LBGT rights , same-sex marriage, etc. There just seem to be people, no matter their political bent, that seem to just refuse to accept inconvenient truths.

The Senator knows this because he understands it'll take a Constitutional Amendment to overcome corporate personhood as the SC has furthered with the Citizen United decision. He is a co-sponsor of just such an amendment. So he surely understands the significance of the SC 2nd Amendment decisions. Oh well...
