Senator Ashcroft says he will defend the constitutionality of abortion
and gun control laws as Attorny General

This is actually a good thing, because we need US v. Emerson to make it
to the Supreme Court. If the government loses at the 5th circuit appeals
level, which it seems they might based on trial transcripts, they need
to appeal it to the Supreme Court for a win for the individual
interpretation for it to become the law of the land, rather than just
within the 5th circuit. So, while Ashcroft's words may mollify the
liberals, its actually playing into our hands. All he needs to do is
keep a prosecutor as dumb as Mateja on the case and we'll win all the
way. Then when we win, US v. Emerson becomes the 'law' he has pledged to
defend, which means he'll pursue removing all gun control laws that
conflict with US v. Emerson. End game, check and mate....hooo-ah.
