23. Look, buddy, YOU DELIBERATELY CHOSE TO CITE SCALIA AS YOUR "EXPERT"... your own freakin' words and weep:

"But ... in the decision itself Scalia said that the laws forbidding guns for the felon or mentally unstable were clearly constitutional." Okay, will you explain to us all just how the criminal, Scalia, is an expert on constitutional law, or will you once again evade the issue????? I'm guessing the latter.

Only a complete fool would ever cite the criminal, Scalia, as an expert in constitutional law, agreed???? Game. Set. Match. You lose.

This last time, though, you finally realized that Scalia alone wasn't nearly enough. So you trot out some other names designed to impress people. Well, I'm not impressed by any of them (especially not by Dershowitz), and you might want to use a spell-check next time, to save us from having to deal with "everythign" and "Desrhowitz."

And I haven't lost the gun control argument, not as long as THE UNITED STATES EASILY HAS A HIGHER MURDER RATE THAN ALL WESTERN, INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES (MOST HAVING GUN CONTROL TO SOME NOTABLE DEGREE). I'll say it once: If anyone's lost, it's you. Even with regards to the U.S. Supreme Court, the decision was 5 to 4, your fellow gunlover, Bush, appointing two of the five, and we both know that future Supreme Courts can overturn previous Supreme Court decisions. Funny, I sort of see Obama appointing justices in the mode of Breyer and Ginsburg rather than Roberts and "Machine-Gun Sammy" Alito, what do you think, DonP?? I'll say it a second time: if anyone's lost, it's you.
