But it's not over yet folks, the court may have ruled but make no mistake, there are many amongst you who will not get it, they don't want you to be free to look after yourself, they don't like that you can legally own and carry a firearm to protect yourself and your loved ones. They don't like that your home is your castle, they want to stick their noses into your home to ensure you are unarmed and defenseless. They'd rather you were shot and killed than see you with a gun on your person or in your home and they will never stop trying to take your freedom and liberty away from you because that threatens them. They will never stop until you are nothing but a nation of whining, servile cowards. Here is one example of what life is like under Gun Control, there are many, many more if you choose to open your eyes and look. So it is imperative that you remain eternally vigilant.FOX News - The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Americans have a constitutional right to keep guns in their homes for self-defense, the justices' first major pronouncement on gun control in U.S. history. The court's 5-4 ruling struck down the District of Columbia's 32-year-old ban on handguns as incompatible with gun rights under the Second Amendment. The decision went further than even the Bush administration wanted, but probably leaves most federal firearms restrictions intact. [snip]
The basic issue for the justices was whether the amendment protects an individual's right to own guns no matter what, or whether that right is somehow tied to service in a state militia. Writing for the majority, Justice Antonin Scalia said that an individual right to bear arms is supported by "the historical narrative" both before and after the Second Amendment was adopted. The Constitution does not permit "the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home," Scalia said. The court also struck down Washington's requirement that firearms be equipped with trigger locks or kept disassembled, but left intact the licensing of guns.
