THE DISAPPOINTINGLY PREDICTABLE Stephen Breyer. Well, okay, not really disappointing because it was so predictable . . . .
WALLACE: I understand. But it certainly didn’t provide for a ban, at least that’s what the court’s decision was, your court’s — it didn’t provide for a ban on all handguns as they have here in Washington, D.C.
BREYER: Are you a sportsman? Do you like to shoot pistols at targets? Well, get on the subway and go to Maryland.
Wow, that solves all sorts of problems. You want an abortion, or a school without government sponsored prayer? Get on the subway! Desegregated schools? Same thing! (Why didn’t the Supreme Court think of that in Bolling v. Sharpe? — Oh, right, no subway back then. See, this is why people oppose mass transit. It’s an end-run around the Bill Of Rights . . . .)
