    It happened outside the USA. Therefore even if he had a license it would likely have done him no good.

    I do think we need to provide Secret Service protection for quite a few high officials who don't now have it. Assassination of a Justice or murder by a common criminal, would severely upset our political system. I'd endorse protection for them and for about half a dozen members of both The House and The Senate. It is necessary, sadly.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    He was at his vacation home outside the US. I don't think that security should be provided for that type of activity. His choice to own property and vacation there. His responsibility.

    The court can work without one or two members. So can the house and senate.

    I do not think it will change his views on 2A however.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    They need more machete-control laws. Obviously.

    Now Justice Breyer knows why we have the second amendment - So we can teach BGs not to bring Machetes to a gun fight........

    We can only hope that this robbery may sway his opinion towards gun rights.

    Well, at least he knows what it feels like to be a victim. Hope he didn't enjoy it.

    Justices of the Supreme Court are already provided protective details by the US Supreme Court Police.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    My point was that it was a home invasion style of robery. Yes it hapened outside the US but that does not mean that ones experance of going through it stopes when they return the the court to hear cases. I hope this sways hime a bit more tward the freadome side and not the control everything direction.

    Nope, if anything he'll push for a ban on those vicious "black assault" machetes.

    It is the opinion of this court that machetes do not fall under the protection of the Second Amendment and therefore are outlawed...

    I doubt it will impact his poistion on 2A. Ginsburg was mugged in DC in 1996, didn't change her opinion. Suter was assaulted in 2004 in DC, I know he is now gone, but it did not change his outlook. I have no reason to believe that it will change Breyer's either.

    Sadly, I must agree with you. It only seem to be common sense. We are stupidly awaiting a serious upset to our system without such protection in place.

    You don't think a couple of these guys could pony up the cash for a body guard? Secret service eats a lot of resources... I don't know if they are that detrimental to the system - or if they are a high enough priority to warrant that kind of protection.
