Breaking News!--The U.S. Supreme Court’s Parting Shot In The Heller Case Was A Bull’s Eye!
Washington D.C. -- With a historic ruling this morning, the nation’s highest court shot down the 30 year-old District of Columbia handgun ban. Justice Scalia wrote the opinion. Justice Breyer dissented, joined by Justices Stevens, Souter and Ginsburg.
The decision is still being studied at this hour by legal scholars but it’s generally accepted that similar bans on guns in Illinois, New York, and possibly a few other jurisdictions have been voided by this morning’s high court’s ruling in District of Columbia vs. Heller.
The questions are does this new ruling affect other bans on so-called assault weapons? Can government charge fees for permits and registrations and require proficiency tests as a condition of keeping firearms.
One thing for sure this ruling is a severe setback to the gun control zealots of the Brady Campaign and Violence Policy Center. Their lawyers will be looking for new avenues to ban firearms. Only an overthrow of the government or a Constitutional Amendment will return gun bans to America. Go ahead all you gun- hating Bolsheviks, “Make my day!”
Heller is here!
