The patently illogical, incredibly ridiculous and generally false ideology behind gun control was, while not smote (as it should be,) dealt a blow via the Supreme Court ruling on Heller vs Lazy and Unimaginative Politicians who Lay Blame for Urban Decay on a Symbol so that They won't have to Delve into the more Complex Social Issues at Hand (Washington.)
The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling today upholding an individual right to bear arms is a clear victory for gun advocates. But the court's divided decision is unlikely to end debate over myriad other gun control proposals across the country.
In a 5-to-4 decision, the majority opinion, written by Justice Antonin Scalia, held for the first time that the Constitution provides an individual right to bear arms, such as for self-defense, rather than a right that applies only to a state militia.
The spirit of the Constitution was to maintain and enforce the right of the people as helmsmen of our republic not limit their means. Quite the contrary, the document was a thesis on the limitations of governance. Many, both right and left, would seem to have forgotten this. The gun control ideal is a lopsided debacle that allows empty headed legislators to hate-worship an idol (the evil gun) in lieu of getting their hands dirty in addressing the underlying, vastly complex causes of violence and crime.
