All I can say is I hope they make them eat it! It will be a pleasure to see these people crying in front of the cameras. Mr. Jackson, if you read this, you can go first!
The ISRA has filed suit in Federal Court in Chicago and the mayor was the first to cry.
in my opinion, this was not a very good thing. OK, it passed to our liking, but it only went through with a 5-4 decision. the supreme court has become an untouchable entity. they're supposed to interpret the law, not make it up. 4 of these ******** voted against this and it should have been a 9-0 as is spelled out very clearly in the constitution. this just scares the bejevees out of me. Ol Barry gets in there with a majority in congress and our guns are on the way out.

I agree with the statement above. 5-4 is not a good deal even if it went our way. In the future it will be a struggle at best.
There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man. Sir Winston Churchill.
Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom. Einstein
It will always be a battle to keep our rights in general but, a victory is a victory. The scary part is that 4 Judges interpreted the constitution to fit the polictical views.
Make no mistake the decision was a great victory for individual rights as well as for firearm ownership.
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
In a vacuum, a lawyer could easily argue both sides!
This CLEARLY NOT a vacuum! Our Founding Fathers used words judiciously. When they wrote The State, that meant that it was the Government ( or the States ), but not an individual right or duty. When they wrote The People, it meant just that!!!!!!
They also meant that this was not a right granted by the Constitution, but a Right that pre-dated the Constitution!
The 12 Original Amendments were offered all at once, the First, had no more force than the twelfth. Ten were adopted, NOT the First, and NOT the Second, but the Third thru the Twelve!
When some SOB want to tell you that the First is the First, tell him it is really the Third!
Unless I missed something, the decission was 5 to 4 in favor that the 2nd ammendment was ruled a right of an indiviual to keep and bear without being a member of a military group. This is a landmark decission that will make it impossible for the government to disarm the ordinary citizen. If the ruleing went the other way, the process would have begun to disarm all not authorized by the government to keep and bear as has happened in other nations in the last 80 years. This truly was a victory for the gun owners of America.
