    Answering a 127-year old constitutional question, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to have a gun, at least in one’s home. The Court, splitting 5-4, struck down a District of Columbia ban on handgun possession.
    Justice Antonin Scalia’s opinion for the majority stressed that the Court was not casting doubt on long-standing bans on gun possession by felons or the mentally retarded, or laws barring guns from schools or government buildings, or laws putting conditions on gun sales.
    In District of Columbia v. Heller (07-290), the Court nullified two provisions of the city of Washington’s strict 1976 gun control law: a flat ban on possessing a gun in one’s home, and a requirement that any gun — except one kept at a business — must be unloaded and disassembled or have a trigger lock in place. The Court said it was not passing on a part of the law requiring that guns be licensed.

    Clear to me is the fact we must have a president who selects conservative supreme court judges.

    From one old guy to another.....

    It would be nice to believe that a psuedo, faux, conservative candidate, like we now have running for president, will be able to install conservative justices with a majority of liberals in the House and Senate. Realistically the dem witts will block all conservative nominees for the Supreme Court. It is of supreme importance to NEVER vote a liberal into any position of importance!
    The pendulum is still swinging to the left, I just hope I live long enough to see it swing back to the right, as it certainly will someday. What scares me is, what kind of catastrophe do we have to endure, to wake people up, before that happens.:(

    I agree as an old timer I have never seen a time like this highly unpredictable but it appears we are on the road to socialism, a rich/poor society, GOD only knows why anyone would want that but we have many leaders that seem to work in that direction.:(

    However you interpret it, it's a wonderful day to be a gun owner in the U.S. This isn't the cure for the Brady Bunch and their ilk, but it sure is a start ... See the NRA says it will be filing suit in Chicago and elsewhere to have similar Draconian gun laws overturned. hear hear!!

    Hooorah!

    I like it. The Second Amendment means exactly what it means, "no infringement"!
