The Supreme Court has recognized an individual right to keep and bear arms! The Second Amendment means what it says. The DC gun ban is struck down!
Expect many NYS and NYC gun laws to be struck down soon as well.
The money quote, so far, is from John Paul Stevens’ dissent. The majority, he wrote, “would have us believe that over 200 years ago, the Framers made a choice to limit the tools available to elected officials wishing to regulate civilian uses of weapons.”
Yes, imagine that, the Framers limiting the powers of elected officials over the citizens. Shocking, I know.
Everybody to the range. The first round of ammo is on me.
