    Gun-Rights Bolstered by Supreme Court

    Gun rights extended by Supreme Court

    By MARK SHERMAN
    The Associated Press
    Monday, June 28, 2010; 11:54 AM



    WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court held Monday that Americans have the right to own a gun for self-defense anywhere they live, advancing a recent trend by the John Roberts-led bench to embrace gun rights.

    By a 5-4 vote, the justices cast doubt on handgun bans in the Chicago area, but signaled that some limitations on the Constitution's "right to keep and bear arms" could survive legal challenges.

    Justice Samuel Alito, writing for the court, said that the Second Amendment right "applies equally to the federal government and the states."

    (Photos from a Patriot's Day gun rights rally)

    The court was split along familiar ideological lines, with five conservative-moderate justices in favor of gun rights and four liberals opposed. Chief Justice Roberts voted with the majority.

    Two years ago, the court declared that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess guns, at least for purposes of self-defense in the home.

    That ruling applied only to federal laws. It struck down a ban on handguns and a trigger lock requirement for other guns in the District of Columbia, a federal city with unique legal standing. At the same time, the court was careful not to cast doubt on other regulations of firearms here.

    Gun rights proponents almost immediately filed a federal lawsuit challenging gun control laws in Chicago and its suburb of Oak Park, Ill, where handguns have been banned for nearly 30 years. The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence says those laws appear to be the last two remaining outright bans.

    Lower federal courts upheld the two laws, noting that judges on those benches were bound by Supreme Court precedent and that it would be up to the high court justices to ultimately rule on the true reach of the Second Amendment.

    The Supreme Court already has said that most of the guarantees in the Bill of Rights serve as a check on state and local, as well as federal, laws.

    Monday's decision did not explicitly strike down the Chicago area laws. Instead, it ordered a federal appeals court to reconsider its ruling. But it left little doubt that the statutes eventually would fall.

    Still, Alito noted that the declaration that the Second Amendment is fully binding on states and cities "limits (but by no means eliminates) their ability to devise solutions to social problems that suit local needs and values."

    Justices John Paul Stevens and Stephen Breyer, joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, each wrote a dissent. Stevens, in his final day on the bench after more than 34 years, said that unlike the Washington case, Monday's decision "could prove far more destructive - quite literally - to our nation's communities and to our constitutional structure."

    The ruling seemed unlikely to resolve questions and ongoing legal challenges about precisely what sort of gun control laws are permissible.

    The response of the District to the court's ruling in 2008 is illustrative of the uncertainty.

    Local lawmakers in Washington, D.C. imposed a series of regulations on handgun ownership, including requirements to register weapons and to submit to a multiple-choice test, fingerprinting and a ballistics test. Owners must also show they have gotten classroom instruction on handling a gun and have spent at least an hour on the firing range. Some 800 people have now registered handguns in the city.

    Anticipating a similar result in their case, Chicago lawmakers are looking at even more stringent regulations.

    But the new regulations themselves are likely to themselves be the subject of lawsuits, a fact noted by the dissenting justices Monday. Already in Washington, Dick Heller, the plaintiff in the original case before the Supreme Court, has sued the city over its new laws.

    Heller argues that the stringent restrictions violate the intent of the high court's decision. So far a federal judge has upheld the limitations, but the case has been appealed.

    Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, said his politically powerful group "will continue to work at every level to insure that defiant city councils and cynical politicians do not transform this constitutional victory into a practical defeat through Byzantine regulations and restrictions."

    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an ardent proponent of gun control, said the ruling allows cities "to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists while at the same time respecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens."

    I am amazed that 4 of the judges dare to mess with the 2nd amandment. It is really time to buy and get more stuff

    I wonder how long these 5-4 split opinion rulings on gun rights will hold up if/when Kagan ends up as a Supreme Court Justice???

    And in a case challenging the District of Columbia's handgun ban as unconstitutional, she said bluntly: "I am not sympathetic."

    On Monday, only hours before her nomination hearings are set to begin, the Supreme Court is expected to rule on another on handgun case.

    We are being attacked on all fronts. The leftist make their agenda clearer everday.

    The 4 to 5 split will stay after she is appointed, as she is just replacing a already liberal judge.

    The scary thing is they are appointed for life.

    Kagan Reeks of Bolshevism, gun rights are not the only issues with her, but she is probably the worst, and most Anti-American, Anti-Germanic piece of filth they could have put on the Court.

    And the fact is, had it not been for her greasy ancestors, who aided the Bolsheviks in their quest of murder and self promoting corruption, from the safety of America. It is likely that the Bolsheviks would have lost and Russia and the world would have been better for it.

    Now the infection, is continuing to fester and grow in the US because it has not been put down. The nomination of this slime bag, is bad news not just for those that want gun rights, bet every white person in America.

    That is exactly, why she was nominated by Obama.

    Besides, is anyone sure this is a Woman??

    The scum that controls the house,senate and presidency knows that their days are numbered. That is why they trying to push as much leftist crap down our throats as quickly as they can.

    I keep warning people that these leftist are transgenerational and that each 1/2 generation they get worse. Each generation becomes more accepting of their leftist ideas. We must brake the cycle and turn things around, not just stop them.

    On a positive note the counter culture people of the 60's and 70's is getting older. I think if we make our young people aware of what is going on we just might have a chance.

    Just think president Waschbär recently said fellow negro Clarence Thomas did not have enough experiance to sit on the bench.

    The most frightening thing is that this was 5-4 decision. Does anybody honestly believe that court balance will hold much longer? I know I don't.

    Well if/when Kagan's appointed (and I'm almost certain she will be just because she's a Liberal and Obama wants her in) she'll be replacing Stevens and Stevens was a moderate on some issues.

    The 2nd Amendment obviously wasn't one of them (since he voted on the Liberal side against this ruling that was in favor of the opinion that the Constitution gives the average American citizen firearms freedoms), but there were a few issues where he threw his lot in on the right side (not many, but a few). I doubt if Kagan will do the same thing.

    However I see what you're saying as far as the 5 to 4 glue goes, but Scalia's getting pretty old. I hope he can hold on for awhile longer, maybe Obama will be out of office by then.

    ......and EQ Fighter, no....I'm NOT sure that it's a woman.

    Once upon a time we used to call "things" of foreign folks just that: things, animals

    Now, these foreign folks lead our nations...


    Joke aside, you Americans really need to get rid off the Jewish filth and other anti-white racists (like C.Rice) in ruling positions. Soon.


    Good luck

    Velvet, most of Europe is controlled by the same race. Their center is the City of London.

    Look at Merkel, she is doing what the zionists want from her.

    Schroeder is advisor to the Rothschild bank.

    Schmidt is Halfjew and Bilderberger


    and so on and on.
