    They don't want to hear from us. .
    How is that different from your local state court or the federal circuit court?

    I wasn't aware of any court that has a "post a comment to the judge" section.

    You want to make your voice heard?

    Go serve on a jury. Instead of saying "How do I get off a jury" go inquire about how you can volunteer to serve on one.

    People want everything simple. Well, tough *****. It's not.

    How about instead of looking for a link to post a comment to a judge you go down to a courthouse library and ask a librarian for a form book on Amicus Briefs and spend some time reading or making copies so you can read it at home.

    You want a template for a brief?

    Their are 3 amicus briefs posted in PDF form online for this case. They have been posted online for at least a month.

    They have a lifetime appointment to the court.

    They are supposed to be independent of the shifting currents of the people's fancy.

    You want to make you voice heard? Vote in the Senate elections.

    Ever hear the term "advice and consent of the senate" in terms of a judicial appointment to the federal bench? Eh?

    The president appoints and the senate confirms the federal judiciary.

    Once that happens, neither the executive or the legislature controls what happens. That is why the judicial appointments are so viciously fought over.

    Also see the DOJ's template for an amicus brief.

    (If anyone knows how to write one, and write one well, they do...)

    I think we represent over 80 million (or is it more?) legal gun owners though. And within their supposed 25 million (of which well over half probably disagree with them) they are not representing any of us! Who gave them the authority to represent in this matter? They don't. They are individuals with opinions taking advantage of their positions to make their opinions have more weight than their constituents. They have no right to do so. I take them with as much weight as some Movie star.

    I'd say they represent the interests of 5 million criminals.
    That sure is one way to take it - as ever the legitimate citizen is left out of the equation.

    They exist entirely it seems on that broad ''guns are bad'' sweeping assumption.

    MitchellCT - Good informational post but, somewhat misdirected.
    I do fully understand why the Supreme Court judges have a lifetime appointment.
    I also never miss an opportunity to cast my vote.
    I really love living in Pennsylvania where the President of the U.S. is already elected before my one precious vote is even counted.
    That always really motivates me to do my homework and pick the candidate that I think would make the best prez.
    BTW - I also am not the sort of person that attempts to duck out of jury duty.
    Maybe I will file a brief.

    "We would like for the court to reverse the D.C. circuit," Dwyer said, "for them to say there is no individual right to possess a gun, that it (the Second Amendment) enables states to arm militias."

    "We hope they don't say anyone can have a gun anytime he wants," Dwyer said.
    Are you kidding me? Have these morons NOT learned the history of this country? Were they absent the day they taught the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights?
