What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Saw this article linked to one of the email alerts this morning.

I'm just glad there is a modicum of "common sense" out there.

Of course, I've always known and believed the 2nd Amendment to include "all bearable arms"...but I distinctly remember a political science professor at Cal Poly vehemently asserting the 2nd Amendment applies only to things like the National Guard and reserve LEO and military units.

I'm very sure most of that class went along with his speel.  I barely got a "C" in that class.  Probably because I didn't agree with him.

Such is life.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

Wow!!  That was a ruling I never expected the liberal Supremes'  to uphold. Did the Ghost of Scalia come and visit them?
