Court puts silencer on gun arguments

The media group Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) expressed disappointment today that the Supreme Court refused to release same day audio tapes in the key Second Amendment case before the court yesterday.

“The Supreme Court is the ultimate people’s court, and people have the right to hear and see what goes on there. It’s disappointing that the news media are not allowed to use their best tools to deliver this important story to their audiences,” said RTDNA Chairman Stacey Woelfel in a news release.

    The transcript is available. I suggest a You-tube video “re-enactment” of the oral arguments using appropriate stand-ins for the justices and lawyers.

    Larry, Moe, Curly and Shemp could do the acting and voices for the liberal wing of the court.

    Huh. Wonder when that “right” to transcripts came into being?

    I mean, it’d be nice and all, but I can’t see how it’s a “right”.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
