Machine Gun Sammy

As yet more evidence of the polarization of political groups in this country, we will see both sides point to Judge Alito’s machine gun opinion as a positive, but for very different reasons (you can guess which reason is crazy):

In a lone dissenting opinion as a federal appeals court judge in 1996, Alito argued that the federal ban on possessing machine guns was unconstitutional — a stand described by both admirers and detractors Tuesday as one of the most revealing cases in the lengthy judicial record of President Bush’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Concentration is important!
