***Now the fight over gun rights really begins. ***
How true! I can read any newspaper in the US, order it through the mail, cross state lines to buy one.
Such should now apply for guns.
But I can’t buy a handgun out of state.
I can’t buy one through the mails.
I can’t own certain handguns or rifles in some areas.
I can’t own more than one in some cities and then the city may dictate what I am allowed to own.
Yes, the fight is now really on.
bahaha! I get it...
Now, when will somebody file a lawsuit that forces DoD to allow us to carry weapons (on which we’re trained and which we carry everywhere else) on DoD installations?
Well duh, did anyone ever read the 10th Amendment?
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Right now it's a bit fuzzy as to what that protection really is. I guess it will take many court cases and much time to sort that out.
Like a Dog: The Origins of Barack Obamas Petulance Excellent VDH
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
excellent. a nation without the right to own firearms is a nation without defense from tyranny.
Guras second victory before the Supreme Court, McDonald v. Chicago
That lawsuit never should have been necessary.
After Heller, Morton Grove, IL, the first city to pass a Handgun Ban, and which Chicago modeled, repealed their ban at the next Town Council meeting. Knowing their Handgun Ban law was doomed and all lawyer fees would be a waste of the peoples money. As such Mayor Daley should have gotten the hint.
But nooooooooo, not King Richie. HIS laws superseded everything. And in IL they did as HIS CITY had 'Home Rule' dammit. No stinking constitution or SCOTUS decision was gonna stop HIM. He was MAYOR DALEY you morons. He doesn't like guns so that was that. Deal with it peons!
If you have trouble says the mayor, just dial 911 and the police will be right there to save you. Except the mayor hates HIS police almost as much as guns. So they're underfunded, have equipment that doesn't work, and are only about 3,000 Cops short. But not to worry says Richie, the police will be 'right there'.
In the meantime he's spending $10 Mill the city doesn't have to chase the Olympics he'll never get and spend more of the peoples money that isn't there fighting for a Law that anyone with an IQ above freezing knows is going to be struck down. So it's no wonder he decided not to run for reelection. The people have finally seen the King doesn't have any clothes.
Oh. And last I looked the streets of Chicago are not running red with blood. At least not from people who now have 'legal guns'. It seems that all the killings are from those two 'protected voting blocks' he so depended on for votes.
The Amish and Norwegian Grannies.
The truth is that Slaughterhouse has to be overturned. Scalia, for all his conservatism is completely wrong.
That we had a half dozen Thomases on the court. You can see why he was attacked with such visceral fury.
Thomas would return to us our Constitution, our Rights and our country.
