    Default Individual Gun Rights Protected, Top U.S. Court Says

    (copied from Bloomberg terminal)

    By Greg Stohr
    June 26 (Bloomberg) -- A divided U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution protects individual gun rights, striking down the District of Columbia's handgun ban and raising election-year questions about weapons restrictions elsewhere.
    The 5-4 ruling resolves a constitutional question that had lurked for two centuries: whether the Second Amendment covers people who aren't affiliated with a state-run militia.
    Although the decision leaves governments with latitude to regulate firearm ownership and possession, it may make laws in Chicago, New York City and other cities more vulnerable to legal challenges.
    The case is District of Columbia v. Heller, 07-290.

    5-4 vote is not a vast majority but a win is a win, regardless! 'Bout time they got it right! We can at least thank Bush for nominating some common sense judges!

    I'd like to see NRA membership a requirement to participate in Hunt Tests. After all, hunt tests "allegedly" are tied to hunting; and to hunt requires a gun; and the foremost entity in this country fighting to maintain your Second Amendment rights is the NRA.

    OK, I've pulled the pin and tossed it...diving behind the sandbags now, regards!

    NRA is important, but the decider is the guy wearing the black robes. The next President of the United States will seat 2 Supreme Court Justices - FOR LIFE!!!

    Something to keep in mind in November regards

    It's amazing how quickly someone who demands his rights be protected will try to impose his will on the behavior and choices of others.

    And as soon as they get one or two more liberal revisionist judges on the high court they will push a case like this one up there and get them to rule (incorrectly) that it is not an individual right.
