'A major victory for all Americans'

The Supreme Court's 5-4 decisions recognizing that the Second Amendment means exactly what it says is a significant victory for all Americans, regardless if they own guns.

But it also shows that determined liberals can undermine the U.S. Constitution. The four liberals on the court said the Constitution is subject to their interpretation and the Founding Fathers didn't know what they were doing.

If Barack Obama is elected president, he will stack the court with far left extremists who will shred the Constitution to further the liberal agenda.

We now have a right to own guns?? Well, isn’t that special?!?!

It seems to me that right has been in effect ever since the 2nd amendment was written. Many anti-gun lobbies have tried their best to interpret it otherwise, and constitutional scholars have been trying to tell them that the original intent of the Framers of the Constitution was exactly what is read, word for word, because when you get right down to it, we ARE a militia if this nation comes under attack.

In 1941, when Japan attacked the U.S. Naval forces at Pearl Harbor, there was a serious reason they attacked where they did, and not on the west coast of this nation. They didn’t fear our military, they feared the ARMED U.S. citizen and the insurgency that they were certain they would face.

We, The People are the very reason that no foreign power has even tried to invade this nation, we always have been, we always will be, by God, lets keep it that way.

All I can tell you fine folks is this, if you have em, secure em, if you don’t have em, you’d be well advised to buy a few, become highly proficient in their use and invest in precious metals, brass, copper, lead, things of that nature.

You never know when they might change their minds.

"More study is needed to determine just how sweeping the ruling might be. Does it affect other gun control efforts? Did the Justices leave a little room for regulators?

But that is small potatoes to the stunning nature of the ruling itself."

"Small potatoes," my eye. The devil, as has been said, is in the details.

The decision settles nothing except that it is an individual right. It would seem to rule out a rational basis test for laws burdening such a right. But without deciding the incorporation issue (whether this just affects federal laws or whether it is applied to the states through the 14th amendment) and the level of scrutiny to be applied to laws burdening such a right, we will need 100 years of litigation to sort it all out.

Thanks a lot, Nino.

The two Supreme Court decisions this week, where the liberal judges sides with child rapists and tried to rewrite the Constitution on the Second Amendment are all the reasons you need to vote for John McCain this Novemember.
