The Constitutional Court is failing in its responsibilities to determine if the case presented, dealing with legislation as written, is constitutional and can be upheld or is not constitutional and must be withdrawn in spite of the consequences of the implementation of bad legislation.
Presented by Representative Carolyn Maloney of New York with four co-sponsors and deemed to have Constitutional Authority by Article 1, Section 8 Clause 3, the “Commerce Clause”.
This bill, presented May 21 in the 114th Congress (2015/2016), seeks to modify Section 922 of title 18 , United States Code by adding language requiring every purchaser of a firearm to have “qualified liability insurance”. Where “qualified” is defined as being authorized by the State insurance regulatory authority for the State in which the purchaser resides.
America’s 1st Freedom, a National Rifle Association magazine ran a story titled “A Show of Courage in Detroit”. The story is about a Police Chief in a major urban city with a reputation for violent crime. What make him news worthy is his support for law-abiding Citizens right to protect themselves with deadly force when their life is threatened. He distinguishes self-defense from vigilantism.
He acknowledges what law-abiding Citizens know, the Citizen is the first responders to violent crime in their homes and on their streets.
114th Congress: Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman introduced this on May 12, 2015. I’ll give you two guesses (but you only need one) which political party she affiliates with. Another three guesses for which state she represents (Democrat from New Jersey, the other two guesses would have been New York and California). She has 30 co-sponsors from 13 states. I am sorry to report three of them are from Florida (Reps. Castor, Frankel, and Hastings).
