"The right just doesn't exist. Clearly, the states no longer need protection from the federal government disarming their "well-regulated" militia. The Second Amendment no longer speaks to us. The Second Amendment has no modern day application. The Second Amendment is dead."
Judge Ron Greenburg
Retired judge of the former Berkeley-Albany Municipal Court, California, free-lance writer
"Second Amendment Doesn't Apply To Late 20th Century," May 13, 1995, by Ron Greenberg, San Francisco Examiner

Judge Ron Greenburg needs to be impeached. It is people like him that proves we need the 2nd Amendment even more today.

    I tend to agree with Greenburg. The Second Amendment has been taken out of context.

    Greenburgs attempt at Lenin politics If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. (Lenin

    Ron Greenburg doesn't exist. Ever hear of Lexis-Nexis. This is the post 9/11 USA PATRIOT programme and the laws will be written by phantom judges. Doth ye protest, X-rayed & frisked weak-kneed air travelers?

    Sounds like something Obama,Reid, and Pelosi would say.

    Now this site is putting up faked quotes by non-existent people... and the deeply in need of medications crazies are buying into this faked up hype... its true, this site has long since jumped the shark

    If Greenburg actually exists he should be impeached. Someone this intellectually challenged should not even be allowed to breed, never mind hold any kind of public office. The Second Amendment was not designed to protect our right to shoot Bambi. It was to protect us from people like Harry Reed, Nancy Pelosi and Barry Obama....

    Gun Control works. Worked for Stalin. Worked for Mao. Worked for Castro. Worked for Kim. Worked for Lenin. Worked for Hitler.
     -- Abigail     
    He is right since all militias come under the President of the US. The indians are gone etc. People should be allowed to have guns for hunting and self defense. Not for shooting cops and legislators. Of course they we never had guns for the purpose of turning them on ourselves or our government. That philosophy is plain hogwash. We do however have a weapon against the state or government and it is called VOTING.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    Why show this quote when it was not made by a real Judge? The Second Amendment and it's supporters don't need this garbage posted anywhere!
     -- Al Bunger, Prescott Valley, AZ     
    Sometimes we post quotes to expose their lack of standing. This Judge Greenburg quote has been floating around the internet as proof of a concerted effort to discredit the 2nd Amendment. Thought we'd show it to be spurious.

    It is not spurious: Here is your proof.

    The 2nd Amendment was created to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government. History has shown us -that necessity & what happens when people are disarmed. Judge Ron Greenburg has not learned from history. Nor does he respect the Constitution.
