    Not only states but local governments too. That should help with the convoluted mishmash of laws that exists throughout the US.

    Great news! A big thanks to G.W. Bush for nominating John Roberts and Sam Alito to the SCOTUS. I shudder to think who Gore or Kerry would have nominated.

    Amen to that. We need to all pray for the good health and long life of the 5 in the majority. We need to get Obama out of office before he can appoint any more judges.

    While the Supreme Court ruled that the 2nd Amendment constrains the states (and lower governments) under the 14th Amendment, they did not rule on McDonald per se. Rather, they simply returned this case to the lower courts to "re-think" the lower courts ruling (which supported the Chicago anti-gun law) in light of the fact of the 2nd Amendment which now applies to all states and local governments. The Supreme Court also acknowledged the right of the State and the states to impose "some limitations" on firearms, but did not define (again, just as in Heller) what those limitations could be. The issue will not be settled for some time yet. Nevertheless, this is a significant victory for gun rights throughout the nation and shows gun owners just how vital it is that we get rid of the dems in Congress this November, before Obumbles has another chance to put more liberal judges on the court.

    Daley will be like a worm in hot ashes. Can't wait for the next news conference.

    Reading Scalia's concurrent opinion is a scathing response to Stevens' dissent...

    Who was the schmuck who nominated Breyer?! Maybe I missed it, but did Ginsberg or Sotamayor offer any comments - or did they just glom onto Breyer's concurring dissent?!

    Thanks MK for the link!

    We should all log onto the NRA website and make a donation to help fight for the cause.
