1. I call it the Stewart philosophy.

Stewart, commenting on pornography, said "I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description, and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that."

IMHO, the law must serve as the criterion to determine guilt in a criminal trial. For that purpose, an impartial jury representative of the accused as being of his or her peers, must understand the law. Laws must not be vague but rather must be deterministic.

It is a sad thing that the idea of gun-control has led so many freedom minded Democrats to this point as expressed by Republican Justice Potter Stewart.
