John Roberts to replace Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor

OK. OK. So, it looks like Bush has chosen John Roberts to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Why can't I find a word about where he stands on the following to issues:
1) Does he understand that the 2nd Amendment guarantees individuals the right to bear arms?
2) Does he understand that the consititution was not meant to be a "Living Document"?
3) Does he understand that the 9th ammendment has to give individuals certain "unenumerated rights" or they wouldn't have written it?
4) Does he understand that the Constitution is "in Exile", because the Supreme Court Justices have eviscerated our Bill of Rights and stained the jurisprudence by treating the Constitution as a "Living Document" and legislating from the bench?

Anyone with information on John Robert's views on these three issues please post comments ASAP!

Update. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit has lots of links on John Robert's nomination. Michelle Malkin has a roundup of links on the nomination as well.

Roberts also displayed what some viewed as insouciance toward arroyo toads in a 2003 case, Rancho Viejo v. Norton. Roberts wanted the full D.C. Circuit to reconsider a panel's decision that upheld a Fish and Wildlife Service regulation protecting the toads under the Endangered Species Act. Roberts said there could be no interstate commerce rationale for protecting the toad, which, he said, "for reasons of its own lives its entire life in California."

The Truth Laid Bear is also all over it.

SCOTUS Nomination Blog has a post about Robert's position on the 4th Amendment. I take it to mean Robert's doesn't give a flip about the 4th Amendment.
