BEST NEWS OF THE DECADE
So the bearded commies at the BBC must have choked on their environmentally friendly tofu at the news that The US Supreme Court has ruled that the Washington DC handgun ban is unconstitutional
Currently in Washington DC only the cops, politically connected insiders, and gang members carry firearms, just like in Chicago under Marshal Daley.
Now, law-abiding citizens in our nation's capital will once again be able legally to defend themselves.
After all, if self defense is banned forcing people to rely on the police for protection, it turns out they're no damn good at it. But they do use the violence as an excuse to implement road blocks and checkpoints
How good it feels to live in a land with a simple constitution anybody can understand.
THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
What's shocking is the court was split 5-4 on the interpretation of this. I'd like to ask the 4: "I'm no legal scholar, but what makes _you_ think the second amendment is a collective right, when the other nine are individual rights?"
So now, like dominoes falling, all the petty restrictions on gun ownership (don't forget, the politicians who enact these laws are all protected round the clock by armed police at your expense, and make sure they themselves are exempt anyway) will start to be challenged. And will fall.
The only reason FOID cards cost $5 and not $50,000 is because the freedom-hating politicos did not want such fees challenged in the Supreme court, because they knew they'd lose.
And they have.
LET FREEDOM RING. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
