Supreme Court Gun Decision-Vote For Obama Or Else!

The Supreme Court decided that individuals had the right to possess handguns in their home for self defense and over turned laws in Washington D.C. that attempted to control possession of weapons. Justice Scalia, speaking for the 5-4 majority said the Constitution did not allow “the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used in self defense in the home.” However, the majority did make clear “it is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” The decision opened the door for legislation to prohibit carrying concealed weapons or forbidding criminals and the mentally ill from having them. It also indicated weapons could be forbidden in sensitive areas like in the vicinity of schools.

The 5-4 decision makes abundantly clear that Barack Obama must be elected to prevent the Supreme Court from swinging even further to the right. A McCain election will most probably result in over-turning the right to an abortion.

    Whatever happened to the Constitution? Didn’t it state the a person has the right to keep and bear arms? The government thinks they have to legislate just be doing something. I would like to see the government start to try to eliminate poverty, stave off inflation and maybe get affordable health care in our own country. Take care of Americans first and let the rest of the world live as they see fit!
