Gun control opponents are wise to fear Obama


In the important 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller case, four members of the court actually said that the Second Amendment recognizes a right to keep and bear arms   but only as part of an organized state militia, such as the National Guard. Five justices said that people have an individual right to keep and bear arms, striking down the D.C. law that outlawed handgun ownership even in the home. This draconian D.C. law was similar to one in Chicago, Obama’s adopted hometown. Obama supported that law, which the Supreme Court, in McDonald v. Chicago, struck down as well. Case closed? Hardly. If voters give Obama four more years, he will likely have two or more Supreme Court vacancies. One or two more left wing justices, like Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, can flip a 5 4 Heller case the other way.

    Absolute BS! The govt needed an Amendment to allow them to have an Army?! No, it was for the people to keep govt in check just like they had with the British.

      Far too many people actually believe the Second Amendment is the cause for people shooting each other in the streets. What a crock.

      “The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small
      person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great
      equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the
      equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a
      Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were
      determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that
      Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance
      that we will lose it all.”<
      em> –Ronald Reagan

    Heard that a Bill has passed inthe Senate–by Reid and Boxer–that will authorize the IRS to decide who may own firearms, if anyone is ” delinquent ” in backtaxes. WHAT is up with that??? And why has no one heard of it???
