A Great Day for Washingtonians

Politics Comments Off

Thursday marked a great day for every Washingtonian - whether they realize it or not (most likely not) - as the Supreme Court finally overturned D.C.’s handgun ban. Liberals have already decried the 5-4 ruling as a “controversial,” “fractured,” and “splintered” from a biased ”conservative” court (not surprisingly, the same hypocrites labeled this month’s 5-4 Boumediene v. Bush ruling as “landmark” and “historic” because it rebukeMan of the Yeard President Bush).

The Second Amendment is quite clear (”the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed“), so it’s hard to imagine how such an unalienable right can take 33 years to restore and with such a relatively split, though not unexpected, 5-4 opinion at that. Nonetheless, our nation must be thankful to have justices like Scalia, Roberts, Thomas, and Alito on the bench.

Perhaps the rest of our courts can learn from this example and take some time away from inventing rights out of thin air to start recognizing our longstanding unalienable rights.
