: YOU do have the right to bear arms

06-28-10, 12:15 PM
This morning the Supreme Court handed down the decision that every legally qualified American citizen in all 50 States has the right to keep and bear arms. The right is not given over to individual State control.

I assume that Sarah Brady and Bloomberg are having heart attacks and Boss Daley and Hussein O. will call out the onerous regulation writers.............(there are provisions for 'reasonable' controls in places which already have such in place.)

Considering that only 10% of young Americans are reportedly qualified to be members of the armed forces due to the majority's substandard intelligence, education, physical fitness or criminal record status .... this presents a bit of a bit of a quandary!

Virginia just passed a law that makes it now legal to carry a concealed weapon into a bar so long as you don't consume alchohol. Apparently the state's experience with "Don't Drink and Drive" laws as deterrents vehicular manslaughter, not to mention the number of drunken assaults and murders committed, in and out of bars, in Richmond every year, could be overlooked for the sake of those who want to go to a bar while packin'. I have to admit this may increase the survival rate of those leaving bars, in sober conditon, in the wee hours!

It was good day for the citizens as they applied the ruling of Heller vs. DC to the rest of the states as well. The next battle will be in how much paperwork can a city or other governing body force on the citizen in order to obtain the ability to purchase said firearm. Residents of DC are spending several hundred dollars and lots of red tape and run around before getting the appropriate permits, but its a heck of a lot better then what they had before.

This is great news. :) For once our freedoms are actually being respected. I want to get a firearm after college too (it's a pain in the ass to do it now, can't carry on or near campus, and since I live there....)

Though I own no guns nor have the remotest desire to do so, this was the right decision. Good for the Supremes.

Hizzonor "Boss" Daley is already working on as many loopholes as he can to make it hard, costly or impossible to "legally" own a gun in Chicago, because as we all have seen, Chicago is much safer after the 28 year hand gun ban. :rolleyes:

You have the right to these bear arms anytime.

It appears that Jesda's weight loss program is showing signs of success!

That picture is from 2004, but don't tell anyone :)

Good news there. In alabama you cannot carry concealed weapon without permit, but can open carry any weapon. Pistols out tonight folks.

It's a righteous victory indeed. I've said before that owning (let alone carrying) a firearm is a tremendous responsibility and liability. I realize it's not for everyone. I personally know hoplophobes that go into rigors when I even say the word GUN. :hide: I would never suggest forcing those people (by law) to own and carry a firearm. In the same respect I've always felt that they have no right to insist the law prevent me from doing so.

My first rifle a Marlin gold trigger 30-30, bought when I was 13 years old with money earned mowing lawns:

Yeah Jesda, you look great. Nice job

We've always had that right. The fact that the Supreme Court even had to rule that we have such a right is a sad commentary on the state of liberty in this country.

You have the right to these bear arms anytime.

Well thank goodness. I was starting to get worried.

For once the Supreme Court upholds the Constitution.
What next?
