The eighth amendment protects us from those $25,000 speeding tickets. If the enemy of your enemy is you friend, than the NRA would be your best friend, even if you don't agree with everything they do or say.

Winning the Heller decision in the Supreme court in scary in a way that it was won by a 5 to 4 vote. A win is a win, as they say in football, but one more liberal vote would have devestating consequences here.
