Anti-Gun Justice Becomes Victim of Armed Robbery

by Michael Filozof

Ah, yes. There is such a thing as "poetic justice" after all! It seems that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, a 1994 Clinton appointee, was the victim of an armed home-invasion robbery in his vacation home on St. Kitts and Nevis. (Read the report at

Breyer voted against the majority in two recent landmark gun-rights cases: District of Columbia v. Heller in 2008 and McDonald v. Chicago in 2010, both 5-4 decisions. In Heller, the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment granted Americans the constitutional right to possess a handgun in the home for self-defense, and the Court applied (or "incorporated") that right to the states in McDonald. Breyer denied that the Constitution granted Americans the right to armed self-defense in his dissenting opinions.

Breyer also made a laughingstock of himself back in 1999 by citing the Supreme Court of Zimbabwe --- yes, Zimbabwe! -- in two death penalty cases, Moore v. Nebraska and Knight v. Florida.

So... a Supreme Court justice who voted to deny Americans the right to defend themselves with a handgun, and who cited the phony court of a notorious Third World dictatorship, finds himself defenseless against a machete-wielding robber in a Third World tourist trap.... Priceless!!!

(The tragedy of the whole thing is that Breyer probably still doesn't "get it"...)
