We’re Going to the Supreme Court

SCOTUSBlog has it.  Great news, but I’m going to be crapping thumbtacks over this until we get a positive ruling.

 After a hiatus of 68 years, the Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to rule on the meaning of the Second Amendment — the hotly contested part of the Constitution that guarantees “a right to keep and bear arms.”  Not since 1939 has the Court heard a case directly testing the Amendment’s scope — and there is a debate about whether it actually decided anything in that earlier ruling. In a sense, the Court may well be writing on a clean slate if it, in the end, decides the ultimate question: does the Second Amendment guarantee an individual right to have a gun for private use, or does it only guarantee a collective right to have guns in an organized military force such as a state National Guard unit?

    No – it’s “You just won at the Supreme Court – where are you going next” – “I’m going to Daleyland”.

    After all, the guy bankrollign this already lives in FL :)

  5. Alcibiades McZombie says:

    Well, Florida technically has Disney World, not Disneyland.

    I suppose he could also choose to go to Euro or Tokyo Disneyland

  6. Ian Argent says:

    Yeah – but wasn’t someone canvassing for plaintiffs in Daleyland?
