Victory in Heller!

The Supreme Court has ruled in the case of DC vs. Heller that DC’s ordinances are a violation of the Second Amendment.  This is a momentous occasion.  Let the celebrations begin.

While we may not follow our constitution to the letter, at the very least, the Bill of Rights means something, no matter how much the gun haters wish it didn’t.

Long Live the Bill of Rights! Long live the Second Amendment, the individual right of Americans to keep and bear arms.  The Brady Campaign, VPC, CeaseFire PA, and others, can get down and kiss our collective asses for ever trying to con Americans into believing it was only a collective right.

Mr. Gura, Mr. Levy, and many others who’s life’s work brought this to fruition, we don’t just owe you a drink, we owe you a whole damned liquor store.

  1. Good Lord. They should have been able to knock this one out of the park and they muddled to a 5-4 split.

    Well, thank god for the split.


    Congrats to us all and the guys who were gutsy enough to file the suit. Waiting for NRA to take credit.

  2. I’m not sure how this qualifies as a victory. It doesn’t seem to protect against anything but a complete ban and even so it only won by one measly vote.

  3. You have to be able to buy a handgun for use in defense of the home. That’s a very important first step.

  4. This year will go down in history. For the first time, the Supreme Court of the US has recognized the 2nd Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms for self defense! Our streets will be safer, our citizens more protected, and the world will follow our lead into the future!

    (Yes, I KNOW it’s a paraphrase of a mis-attibuted Hitler quote that was never even really said, but with a little re-wording, it fits, no?)


  5. This is why a written Constitution (US) is superior to an “unwritten” one (UK).

    That’s one small step for DC, one Giant Leap for Freedom for the whole US of A.

    A metaphorical “Lexington and Concorde 2.0″…
