    Re: Justices extend gun owner rights nationwide

    Here is where the court 'leaves the door open' for state and local regulations:

    It is important to keep in mind that Heller, while striking down a law that prohibited the possession of handguns in the home, recognized that the right to keep and bear arms is not “a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” We made it clear in Heller that our holding did not cast doubt on such longstanding regulator ymeasures as “prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill,” “laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.” We repeat those assurances here. Despite municipal respondents’ doomsday proclamations, incorporation does not imperil every law regulating firearms.
    This is no different than the court's statement in Heller, and in no way supports the idea that registration, licensing, gun-a-month limits, etc, will pass constitutional muster.

    Silence from the anti-gun side. Hmm.

    What is there to say? There's finally a majority on the court that can read plain English words and decipher their meanings.

    Yes, unless you are a convicted felon you have the right to own guns. I believe Chicago and DC are the only areas that have mandated restrictions to the 2nd amendment. Those restrictions need to be abolished.

    The big problem is that alot of people want to interpret plain english to mean what it clearly doesn't because they do not like the outcome.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Specifically noted is the repeated statement that the RKBA is a "fundamentral" right to our society.

    More to follow as the decision is posted.
    I don't like how that article is written. The SCOTUS once again recognized the right of the individual to keep and bear arms making it illegal State laws which infringe upon such a right. But I bet ol' Mayor McBribe-and-steal isn't too happy about this. ****ing twit. If the elections weren't rigged, maybe someone other than Daley could be mayor
