"YA'LL GET TO KEEP YER GUNZ! THE GUBMENT AINT GONNA TAKE YER GUNZ AWAY! YEEEEEHAW!!! HOORAY FER GUNZ!"
That was the ruling handed down today by the most extreme right-wing SCOTUS in recent history. It's hard to believe this is the same court that just two days ago brilliantly declared it "cruel and unusual" to execute someone who rapes little kids. Yet all but the most enlightened progressives on the bench agreed that ordinary citizens somehow have a "Constitutional Right" to possess handguns.
The fascist court's frightening decision struck down a Washington, DC law that totally prohibited the possession of handguns by those who, for some reason, weren't discouraged by all the permits, licenses, background checks, and fees. Despite all the bureaucratic roadblocks, guns were somehow still falling into the hands of law-abiding citizens.
When the new ban was put into effect, the amount of people murdered by law-abiding citizens dropped dramatically. Now, law enforcement agencies in high-crime areas will have no choice but to focus their efforts on confiscating weapons only from those who acquire them illegally - leaving such individuals totally defenseless and at the mercy of their enemies.
So in effect, Bush's Supreme Court declared it "open season" on inner-city Latino militias today, the same militias that the so-called "Second Amendment" was written to protect.
If Tony Scalia would stop listening to Rush Limbaugh and go to college, he would've known that.
