Posted on 06/26/2008 8:22:18 AM PDT by TSchmereL

AND NOW . . . amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke. . . it is time for . . . that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-the-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, with talent on loan from G-d, at the cutting-edge of societal evolution, with half his brain tied behind his back — just to make it fair, the all-knowing, all-caring, all-sensing, all-feeling, Maha-Rushie! America's Anchorman, Truth Detector, Doctor of Democracy, and Chief of the Patriotism Police. He is the man who runs America. He knows the Democrats like every square inch of his glorious naked body. He is ready to do what he was born to do--That's host. Get ready to what you were born to do--That's listen (and post your comments on the Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Thread).

Second amendment upheld. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2036633/posts

I’ll just wipe a little sweat off my brow, celebrate (mildly) and stand by for the next power grab. Nice to know that somebody can still read, comprehend and express themselves with clarity.

MSM’s going to go bugnuts. ROFLMAO

Ruling has nothing to do with CCW. However, I believe that it will become important in future cases regarding CCW issues.

What part of "keep and bear" doesn't Merryland understand?

I had one when I lived in Indiana. I had one when I lived in Kentucky.

This ruling should support the prohibition here.

Thanks for the ping; Going to have to share Rush’s last hour with Tammy Bruce; Lt. Col. Allen West will be on Tammy’s show at 2:30 Yeah.

Reading through Scalia’s opinion on Heller right now. This is one of the most clear cut opinions I have read. Didn’t bother with the dissents, yet. (157 pages is a lot to read; especially for a blonde *LOL*)

Can’t wait to hear Rush.

I'm sure Rush will lay it out nicely. I've gotta work on my car, but I'll wait until I hear what Rush is going to say. Scalia destroyed Stevens and his minority opinion. This decision has thrown a huge roadblock in front of the gun grabbers. Down the line, it will help gain some of our rights back as suits are carried out against various gun control measures. This just puts to rest the “individual vs. militia” argument in favor of the individual. It also (IMO) disallows laws concerning the necessity to lock and/or disassemble guns in the home.

That’s what’s so frightening - that four “Supremes” (read supreme IDIOTS) actually think it’s okay to throw our rights out the window because... well, because they feel like it.

Leftists follow their own anti-American instincts first, and don’t give a damn about fairness, the law, or the Constitution. They’re not fit to serve in the Government, and they’re certainly not fit to be put in a position where they’re given the power to force anyone to do ANYTHING.

Should be a great few hours of Rush today. I’m looking forward to it :-).

The money quote from Scalia;

“But the enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table. These include the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home. Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.

We affirm the judgment of the Court of Appeals.

It is so ordered.”

Obama’s Efforts to Fund the Self-Described ‘Most Aggressive Group in the Gun Control Movement’

Yesterday I wrote that despite Barack Obama’s claims that he believes in the Second Amendment, is a friend to gun owners, never supported a complete ban on handguns (despite a questionnaire from early in his career stating he did), etc., those claims are hard to balance with his approval of Chicago’s effective ban on handguns. In Obama’s entire time in the city, there’s no record of him ever objecting to it.

Obama’s audacity on this issue goes even further.

Obama was named a director of the Joyce Foundation in late 1994, and remained in that position until late 2002.

During Obama’s tenure with the Joyce Foundation, donations to anti-gun groups increased dramatically. For example, in 1997 and 1998 the Violence Policy Center received $221,000 and $360,000 from the Foundation; those grants and donations increased to $1 million in 2000 and $800,000 in 2002. In all, during Obama’s tenure, the group received $15 million from the Joyce Foundation.

The Violence Policy Center, despite its name, never seems all that concerned with beatings, stabbings, immolations or explosions. No, they’re completely focused on gun violence, and they can effectively be called an anti-gun or pro-gun control organization.

Lest anyone think I’m mischaracterizing their objective analysis, note that their web site touts themselves as “the most aggressive group in the gun control movement.” Also note studies like their one from 2000 entitled, “Unsafe in Any Hands: Why America Needs to Ban Handguns,” which declared the idea that the Constitution would forbid a national handgun ban a “pure myth.” Also note the organization’s subtly-titled book, Every Handgun is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns.)

It’s not just the VPC. The Joyce Foundation also provided several large grants to the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, which can also be safely described as an anti-gun or pro-gun control organization. Besides their role in “litigation designed to change the way guns are designed, marketed, distributed, and sold,” the center perpetually argued that guns in the home were more dangerous than protective.

In 1996, the foundation Obama directed approved $662,525 in grants to the Johns Hopkins Center, and by 2001, they gave another $600,000.

In the wake of today’s ruling, you’re going to hear Barack Obama claim passionately that he believes in the Second Amendment and that he is a friend to gun owners. It will be interesting to see how he can rectify that with his efforts to fund books like Every Handgun is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns.

McCain applauded the SCOTUS decision:

"Today's decision is a landmark victory for Second Amendment freedom in the United States. For this first time in the history of our Republic, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms was and is an individual right as intended by our Founding Fathers. I applaud this decision as well as the overturning of the District of Columbia's ban on handguns and limitations on the ability to use firearms..."
