    This is a great day in American History

    Justice is served

    Woohoo!!! That's awesome news.

    It's sort of scary though, that it was a 5-4 decision. That means there are 4 Supreme Court Justices who aren't fulfilling their duties to the American people.

    I've got to go research the whole decision.

    That has been the typical vote on major cases for a long time.

    3. The handgun ban and the trigger-lock requirement (as applied to
    self-defense) violate the Second Amendment. The District’s total ban
    on handgun possession in the home amounts to a prohibition on an
    entire class of “arms” that Americans overwhelmingly choose for the
    lawful purpose of self-defense. Under any of the standards of scrutiny
    the Court has applied to enumerated constitutional rights, this
    Cite as: 554 U. S. ____ (2008) 3
    Syllabus
    prohibition—in the place where the importance of the lawful defense
    of self, family, and property is most acute—would fail constitutional
    muster. Similarly, the requirement that any lawful firearm in the
    home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible
    for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and
    is hence unconstitutional. Because Heller conceded at oral argument
    that the D. C. licensing law is permissible if it is not enforced arbitrarily
    and capriciously, the Court assumes that a license will satisfy
    his prayer for relief and does not address the licensing requirement.
    Assuming he is not disqualified from exercising Second Amendment
    rights, the District must permit Heller to register his handgun and
    must issue him a license to carry it in the home. Pp. 56–64.

    Fantastic.

    Of course now we get to hear all about King George's Puppet NeoCon Court - you know, the one that gave him the election in 2000.

    Funny how this same "ultraconservative" court just upheld the rights of rapists and delivered Bush a "crushing defeat" (according to CNN) with the terrorist trial ruling.

    5-4 just goes to show how critical the next Presidential election will be.

    We win!

    Very Cool!

    Ban Of Entire class of firearms = Unconstitutional

    Saying Good by to the 1986 Class III Ban is a matter of time...

    Like I said on another post, sometimes they get it right.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7
