[My views were 6-0 identical to Stevens and 0-6 different from Thomas.]
Stevens 5 of 6 and Thomas 1 in 6.
Interesting quiz BUT like a justice, I wold make a decision based on the specifics of the case. For example, I favor the right of the state to ban late-term ELECTIVE abortion - but believe that it's a decision for the doctor and patient when he healh of the mother is at stake or there is a VERY high probability of a child with disabilites so severe a normal life for the mother and child would be impossible.
In other words I respect Palins decision to deliver a child with Downs. But a single mother working at Taco Bell can't get 100K for a speaking gig or multi-millions for a book deal where a ghost writer did the real work. For a real person, the situation is a potential nightmare with no end.
The quiz didn't allow me to consider those specifics.
i took the quiz, it was fun - thanks for the good thing (even though we disagree on everything and you think i'm a religious nut)
but the problem with the questions is that they don't explain if the "bans" are FEDERAL bans or STATE bans. I suppose that the answer is FEDERAL, because it's all about agreeing with the supreme court... but this is the same argument that judges use to usurp their powers.
unfortunately, this is the core problem of most supreme court decisions.
HOwever, applying the argument "if not mentioned, it must mean 'the federal government can/can't'", i ended up agreeing with them 5/6 times (although, i'm sure my reasoning was different). The one I got different was the last one about a State being able to execute a minor - no where in the Federal Constitution is it prohibited.
I got to the first question and could see the game being played.
"In general, do you agree or disagree that an individual should have a right to have a registered handgun at home?"
I have the right to keep a fire-arm in my home, and carry it on my property, even if i do not register it, and I am not licensed.
It is none of the Govts. business.... period.
Gotta love the format of the questions.
I looked at the questions and they are really to vague to give an honest answer.
