Gun rights - Upheld - by supreme Court ...announced today

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court said on Thursday that Americans have a right to own guns for self-defense and hunting, the justices' first major pronouncement on gun rights in U.S. history.

The court's 5-4 ruling strikes down the District of Columbia's 32-year-old ban on handguns as incompatible with gun rights under the Second Amendment. The decision goes further than even the Bush administration wanted, but probably leaves most firearms laws intact.

The court had not conclusively interpreted the Second Amendment since its ratification in 1791. The amendment reads: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

Like it or not...death takes its tax...always!

And what fine job at it do you do...

This is a very important decision for gun owners. I am glad to see the Supreme Court take the initiative to protect the Bill of Rights.

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.

As soon as I read this on the news I felt like going outside and shooting something!! Finally, I get the feeling that there just might be some wise people left in the government.

You must have read my mind. I am really losing faith in my government, but this rekindled a little faith. Hopefully it will be a more common thing.

As good as this was it is unbelievable (at least to me) that it was a 5 to 4 vote. 4 'judges' almost rewrote our constitution!!!! How in the HELL can this be?? :evil:
