It's been a long time coming, but the Supreme Court actually got a major ruling right.

Imagine, these 5 justices have realized that the second amendments words actually have a particular meaning, and that by reading them, one can discover just what that meaning is.

Of course, I have nothing but contempt for the 4 sniveling wastes of a robe who blew their noses on the constitution, the federalist papers, and assorted other such documents and traditions.

In a dissent he summarized from the bench, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that the majority "would have us believe that over 200 years ago, the Framers made a choice to limit the tools available to elected officials wishing to regulate civilian uses of weapons."

Well, Mr. Justice, they did, in fact, do precisely that. The whole point of the constitution is the limiting of the government's ability to control and regulate the behavior of the citizenry. As noted in the Declaration of Independence, the rights which are enumerated in the constitution are not granted by it, but rather are there specifically to recognize the danger of allowing the government to abridge them.

As much shame and opprobrium as possible should be heaped upon the minority opinion holders in this case, who have shown themselves to hold their duties as far less important than their personal, political opinions. Despicable.

Still, "well done" and "good on you" to the majority.
