Court rules in favor of Second Amendment gun right

By MARK SHERMAN, Associated Press Writer 6 minutes ago


WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court says Americans have a right to own guns for self-defense and hunting, the justices' first major pronouncement on gun rights in U.S. history.

The court's 5-4 ruling strikes down the District of Columbia's 32-year-old ban on handguns as incompatible with gun rights under the Second Amendment. The decision goes further than even the Bush administration wanted, but probably leaves most firearms laws intact..."

"Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security and where gun violence is a serious problem," Scalia wrote. "That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct."

The timimng could'nt be better either.

Proving Obama is once again on the wrong side of the issue, and in an election campian time. If Mccain or his staff have any smarts, he will capitalize on this NOW.

Listening to one of the talk shows discussing this, they were talking about 4 justices' who will be leaving their postions over the next 4 years and how important it is to ensure the right person gets into the presidential office. One of them has stated that in crime ridden cities to have a gun in the home is inviting trouble. sheeeshhhh !

Yep. That was my first thought also. Can't believe it was that close. Who are the 4 idiots? Let me guess...

Despite the ruling, we are in trouble folks.

I should probably ad a Whew and thank God to my post above. bounce

lets see.......67,456,435 private gun owners......

didnt kill anyone last night....

and free men , do not need to ask permission to own a gun...


and...the second amendment was put in place ...to insure the congress was held in check, so as not to take advantage of the common man...like in england ...B4 1700 's

calling an illegal alien, an " undocumented immigrant " ......

I personally am outraged that we require the opinion of nine people to tell me what is plainly stated in black and white in the Constitution. It is my opinion that we need to hold these people and all government servants to the standard of that sovereign document. If we did there would be many politicians and judges in jail, where they belong, in my opinion.
