    After almost 10 years of silence on the bench, Justice Clarence Thomas actually spoke up in court today to address a question - specifically regarding 2nd Amendment rights. I wonder if he was spurned on by the loss of Justice Scalia, a friend of Thomas'? Was he attempting to step into the role often filled by his friend? To give a voice to Americans that cherish their rights?

    It's just a curiosity that he spoke up today, especially considering the subject matter. Will we be able to look to him to help fill his buddies' shoes?

    Just read and was getting ready to post also.... I like his timing. Great questions! We need another justice who can hold the line and ask important questions.

    Let's hope that Justice Thomas will hold the same thought provoking, Constitution understanding line that Justice Scalia was known for...

    Well worded.

    When I first read what was asked early this morning it didn't hit me It wasn't until a couple hours later that it rang like a bell with clarity.

    The point he made is clear. There are no others laws like this one, the brush stoke is broad and is not equal.
