    Vice President Richard Cheney, parting company with the official Bush Administration position on the test case before the Supreme Court on the Second Amendment, signed onto a brief Friday urging the Justices to strike down the District of Columbia handgun ban without ordering any further proceedings.

    The rest is here....

    The headline here is somewhat decieving. Dick Cheney along with a majority of congress actually hold a more conservative view of the bill of rights and want that to be known in court! See below.

    Texas GOP Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson, instrumental in the assembly of signers of the brief, said in a statement that “the reason the amicus brief, signed by a majority of the House and Senate, including Vice President Dick Cheney, is significant is because the legislative history should be part of the record in the case. The debate on the Bill of Rights and subsequent Congressional action makes clear that the Founders and elected Representatives since the adoption of the Bill of Rights have considered the Second Amendment a protection of individual rights

    I wish that they would get all of this stuff in place just in case we end up with a Dumborat in ofice. That way, the Rats will have more work to do in order to tear down our 2nd Amen. rights.
