Michael Connelly is the Executive Director of the U.S. Justice Foundation, a non-profit, public interest, legal action organization dedicated to instruct, inform, and educate the public on, and to litigate, significant legal issues confronting America.

As described on yesterday's Crosstalk the Texas marriage amendment was struck down. This is not surprising when we have an attorney general in Washington (Eric Holder) who has instructed state AG's that they don't have to defend their constitutional amendments. This is a violation of Holder's oath of office and as such, a criminal offense under federal law.

Michael noted that judges are not making decisions on the basis of law or the Constitution but rather on the basis of their own political whims. He also stressed that there's nothing in the U.S. Constitution that authorizes a federal judge to declare an amendment to a state constitution that's unconstitutional.

Not only is the Constitution under attack but it seems our veterans are as well. This can be seen in what's happening to some who are being declared incompetent and being told they must turn over their guns. Michael admitted that some veterans, as they became elderly, might have suffered from dementia and became unable to handle their own finances. In those cases a family member was appointed to represent them. Now the federal government is expanding the incompetency diagnosis to include those having physical and mental disabilities, if they've had a bout of depression, minor post traumatic stress disorder or if their spouse is simply paying the family bills. After the incompetency declaration is made, the veteran is informed that they can no longer own, possess, purchase or transport firearms or ammunition and to do so places the person in violation of the Brady Bill which is a felony punishable by a jail sentence.
