Regarding Judge Sam Alito:

While he is probably best known for his dissenting argument in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, in which he argued that women should be required to inform their spouses before having an abortion, he has also argued against Congress regulating private machine gun possession. Alito's dissent to a 1996 ruling that upheld the constitutionality of a federal law banning the possession of machine guns suggested that was no proof that private intrastate possession of machine guns caused more crime to the point that it impacted interstate commerce.

Jonathan Turley, professor of law at George Washington University Law School, said that the dissension in that case should indicate his narrow view on interpreting the constitution and his favoring of commerce

He didn't really come out in favor of machinegun ownership, just against using the commerce clause to try and regulate it. But it gets the Left all bent out of shape so that's something. Of course it is sad to see the weak knee'd guys on the right pointing out "nobody is in favor of private machinegun ownership, that's not what were saying" BUt at least maybe he can read the consititution.
