Supreme Court Backs Gun Rights

Looks like the Supreme Court came out in favor of the individual's right to own firearms today. I and a number of other people were on edge awaiting the outcome. On edge for good reason, obviously, since it was a 5 to 4 decision. In cases like that it probably wouldn't take much to have gotten one of the justices in the majority to change their mind and thus the ruling.

I've always said that just because a court rules one way or another on some issue doesn't make it right, it just makes it law. Still, I think they made the right decision this time around.

They did make the right decision.

The only reason that I feel I can stay in this community with a corrupt DA that lets druggies and thieves go free on a daily basis is that I am fully armed and can protect myself.

hooray, having been around the world a few times, it's been my obseration that when people lose the right to fire arms the next thing they lose is their rights to freedom and we've aready lost too many of those since 9/11.

So this means that cities like San Fransisco's ban have been overturned as well?

I agree with you both. I carry a permitted concealed weapon and am ready to take responsibility for my own security and if need be come to the assistance of others. San Francisco bans concealed weapons and if you read the chronicle, you'll see lots of murders committed by well armed felons.

GREAT! NEWS! this court has been a bit confused in it rulings but this one ricks. Finally following the intent of the farmers. What a novel idea this era of non-accountability. Good for America,good for local communities, good for the individual. For those nuts among you who think this is a bad thing just look at the current fed drug raids. The right to bear arms is the ONLY reason these guys are getting warrents at all.

No. All the gun bans are still in place. If the cities like Chicago and San Francisco refuse to repeal them it will take lower court action to nullify them. The NRA is presently preparing to file suits in against those cities.
