Answering a 217-year old constitutional question, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to have a gun, at least in one’s home. The Court, splitting 5-4, struck down a District of Columbia ban on handgun possession. Although times have changed since 1791, Justice Antonin Scalia said for the majority, “it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.”They're still out of control--the courts, that is. The fact that the Second Amendment is even in question and that this decision declaring the DC law unconstitutional carried by so narrow a margin demonstrates that.
And do conservatives and lovers of the not-living Constitution heart Mr. Justice Scalia or what?
UPDATE: I think Iowahawk has had an overdose on Supreme Court decisions. Just a hunch (tiny language alert). Best phrase: "The sweet, elusive penumbra of our ever-mutating Constitution."
