In spite of secular progressive pressure on the courts of this country to disarm American citizens, the Supreme Court ruled today that individual citizens do have the right to own guns. This is the first major ruling on gun rights in the Supreme Court’s history. The five to four decision struck down the ban on handguns in the District of Columbia.
Justice Antonin Scalia said that an individual right to bear arms is supported by “the historical narrative” both before and after the Second Amendment was adopted. The Constitution does not permit “the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home.” Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas agreed with Scalia.
Justice John Paul Stevens wrote a meaningless dissent based on the argument that the Founding Fathers did not mean what they wrote in the Bill of Rights. Stevens’ fellow secular progressive, Justice Stephen Breyer wrote there “is no constitutional right guaranteed by the Second Amendment to keep loaded handguns. . . .” Secular progressives have repeated this so much that many actually believe it. This is, of course, only one mantra of the radicals who want the courts to change the original meaning of words they don’t like.
Thank you Senator John McCain for supporting security guard Dick Anthony Heller who brought this case to the Supreme Court to secure his Second Amendment rights under the Constitution.
