    24 seconds of a 10-15 minute interview? You so need to watch the rest. I'm guessing you'll be shocked.

    Just prior to his saying, "...so yes there are some limitations that can be imposed. What they are will depend on what the society understood were reasonable limitations at the time. There were certain location limitations..." he spoke of some sort of 18th century battle axe which had been found unlawful to carry around simply to intimidate and scare people.
    And just after the HuffPo cherry picked segment Scalia goes on to say that the decision will have to be made regarding things like hand held rocket launchers.

    Yes there were locational limitations to keep recently free black slaves disarmed. But the 14th amendment took care of that. I fear that medication is fucking with the mind of justice Scalia
    The second amendment is quite clear on the matter the right of the people shall not be infringed
    And yes the whole people are the militia.

    Shocked? Hardly. I read and watched his entire statements before posting.

    I think the first amendment should be limited to only Right wing people the left should just shut the fuck up.

    If Scalia believes there are limits, imagine what the other justices may be thinking.

    Of course there can be limits. Nuclear weapons anyone? Hell, the amendment itself can be rejected if there are enough votes. Of course a large number of politicians would be commiting career suicide in some states for doing so....

    Scalia probably believes in limits within his immediate vicinity.
