Radical Judges Making Gun Ownership a Right!

My mind is racing, not only from the title of the piece but a lot of comments. Unfortunately I'm working on my taxes. Seeing the accountant on Friday.

Justices signal they're ready to make gun ownership a national right

I posted some of the comments below:

We have the silly:
Yippee!!!! Now the Country can be like Somalia. Why not? We're heading that direction anyway. Let the civil wars, crazy private armies, etc. begin.

I love reading the comments about peace loving gentle people who feel the presence of murderous weapons lead us to commit crimes. We will not become an enlightened society by banning everything that is bad for us. If that is the case, why isn't Mexico the safest most peaceful place on the earth?

I guess it's just not dangerous enough for them. What fairy tale land do these justices live in? Here in reality, we live in fear of armed men. And it's not the "hoods" either; The "law-abiding Americans" are just as dangerous and just as likely to shoot innocents.

We have the half-informed pseudo-intellectuals:
Does everyone ignore the first half of the 2nd Amendment?? "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, At the time the nation was founded there was no permanent standing Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, or well established State National Guards; the everyday citizen was the Militia. When the organized National Guards were established by Congress & the States, they became the Militia referred to in the 2nd Amendment. So by that Act, the 2nd Amendment should of become null & void to the regular citizen and would only apply to those enlisted in the National Guard.

We have the self-righteous who demean their philosophical opponents:

The passion of this issue isn't about the constitution. Many people just like guns and want them. The Constitution is meaningless to them since many of them probaly think the Bill of Rights is what Moses brought down from Mount Sinai.

The constitution says "Well-Regulated" when referring to guns, so it's pretty much an open and shut case. However, if youa re a Supreme Court Justice you can pretty much rule on anything without needing a legitimate reason.

All those people who get their seilf identity from gun ownership will probably think this is great. Now they can wear their insecurity in a holster for the rest of the world to see. If they can conceal it, then no one else needs to know about their low self-image.

At least everybody will have a gun handy to commit suicide as society degrades into chaos. Keep a health watch on Kennedy and Scalia. If either dies, all the liberal Justices (except Sotomayor) will retire before the end of Obama's term so that he can restore some faith to the American people, and to keep things from degrading into a corporatist, rightwing, survivalist mentality.

Then we have the ones that ask the only truely valid philosophical question: what is the limit of firepower allowed to an individual?

I want an M1A1 tank, an F-22 Raptor, and some Hawk missiles so I can defend myself against my neighbor who will probably get an F-16... does the Supreme Court think this would be okay? Just thought I'd ask...

Where this breaks down is that the 2nd amendment talks about arms, not rifles or pistols. If the Supreme Court thinks that this means that individuals have a right to own and possess arms then it isn't limited to guns, an individual has the right to own and possess anything up to and including a hydrogen bomb. I think the terrorists have won.

And finally we have the people who simply don't deserve citizenship in this great country:

How many innocent people will now die because of this dogmatic worship of the constitution? Let their bodies be delivered to the Supreme Court and show them the result of their Supreme stupidity.
Who knows best how to run a city? The people who live there or 9 pedants who have never lived there?
You live in a democracy if, and only if ,you and your peers and your neighbours are free to take the decisions which affect your life and your life only. This country is a dictatorship of 9 lawyers who dedicate their life to implementing unto eternity the ideas of a dozen Englishmen in the 18th century who knew nothing of 21st century life. The magnificent nine in their shining temple on the hill, regard as secondary, the views of everyday people alive today (until some nut shoots them) This country has more nuts per acre than any other country in the world.
The constitution has become a cross on which innocent people will be crucified.
Repeal the 2nd amendment in the name of common sense and sane men, women and children.
If you want a gun then join the damned militia
