Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens served nearly 35 years on the high court, and there is one decision that stands out for him.

“Unquestionably the most clearly incorrect decision” is District of Columbia v. Heller, the 2008 decision holding that the Second Amendment created an individual right to bear arms, Stevens writes in his new memoir. The Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Time, CNN and the New York Times have coverage.

Stevens’ new book, released Tuesday, is The Making of a Justice: Reflections on My First 94 Years.

In an interview with Time, Stevens, 99, said the Heller decision has contributed to countless gun tragedies that are “multiplying one after another.” The decision has had “disastrous practical effects,” Stevens told the Washington Post.

“I think there’s no need for all the guns we have in the country,” Stevens told the Post, “and if I could get rid of one thing it would be to get rid of that whole gun climate.”

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
