No More Gun Ban

Finally, an Appeals Court interpretation of the Constitution that I can agree with. In a landmark ruling, a Federal Appeals Court struck down the District of Columbia’s ban on handgun ownership. Gun control advocates are livid and now are shouting “judicial activism at its worst”. The Court’s opinion was that the wording of the Second Amendment guaranteed a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms, and not just a militia’s right.

Of course the liberals have their panties in a bunch. The mayor of D.C., Adrian Fently, vowed to pursue the decision all the way to the Supreme Court. Members of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Handgun Violence are appalled. The cities of Chicago and San Francisco are watching the case fervently. And strangely enough, the mainstream media has not reported the story nationally.

Naturally it’s gone unreported. The liberals don’t want us to be able to protect ourselves. They don’t think a criminal who breaks into your home is bad, just a little miss-guided. Never mind if he’s high on crack, it’s not his fault and we shouldn’t blame him. Remember, when you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.

The Court went on to say that despite their ruling, the amendment was still subject to “reasonable restrictions” such as gun registrations or ownership limits. But D.C. cannot ban ALL handguns for ALL citizens.

The Supreme Court hasn’t ruled on a second amendment case in decades, and law experts feel this case stands a good chance of making it to the court.

Back to the example of the gay muslim crack head who breaks into my home, I’m locked and loaded buster. So are my two neighbors. We all agree to shoot first and sort out the second amendment issues later, after your funeral.

Remember; in Alaska you can still conceal carry without any permit.
