On Tuesday (11/20/07) the U. S. Supreme Court agreed to hear the 2nd Amendment case concerning the D.C. ban on handguns and assembled rifles/shotguns in one's home. There's plenty of coverage on the Internet on this case (search on "District of Columbia v. Heller, 07-290), but I thought one quote from an article on Comcast.net said it all:
"Supreme Court Will Hear Guns Cases"
. . . "Washington banned handguns in 1976, saying it was designed to reduce violent crime in the nation's capital . . ."
Yeah. And we've seen how well THAT worked.
Whatever your party, don't let the candidates duck this issue in '08. If the Supreme Court sides with the District, it will set off a rash of copy-cat bans nationwide--make sure you don't elect anyone who would support those. Vote to defend your rights, your safety, and your liberty.
