Shall not be infringed

Justices Agree on Right to Own Guns
Americans have a right to own guns, Supreme Court justices declared Tuesday in a historic and lively debate that could lead to the most significant interpretation of the Second Amendment since its ratification two centuries ago.

Governments have a right to regulate those firearms, a majority of justices seemed to agree. But there was less apparent agreement on the case they were arguing: whether Washington's ban on handguns goes too far.

This was not a ruling, the story is merely speculating based on statements/questions made during oral arguments.

You can't make any time, place or manner restrictions on abortion. They might as well be done in the proverbial back alley. A pregnant 13 year old girl, which is prima facie evidence of rape, can kill a baby with no questions asked and no interference from government.

There should be no restrictions on firearm ownership, possession or carry.

Daniel: If your wish came true and there were no restrictions on fire arms you would be dead in a month.

I somehow doubt that, anon 8:06.

I agree with Daniel. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go to Amazon and order my own personal aircraft carrier.

While the Supreme Court debates whether individuals have the constitutional right to own a gun in their own home a woman is gunned down talking to 911.
