This is one of the most important SCOTUS decisions this liberal-heavy court has made. The ruling stays true to America and the constitution.
ABC is reporting: SUPREME COURT OVERTURNS STRICT WASHINGTON, D.C. GUN BAN; IN A 5-4 DECISION
COURT AFFIRMS RIGHT TO OWN GUNS. INDIVIDUAL GUNOWNERSHIP!
Now, more than ever, when our political elites and elected leaders are failing to protect this citizenry of this great nation, we can at least take comfort in that fact that we will not be sheeps led to slaughter.
Should it come down to the streets, we will be able to defend ourselves, our families, our homes, our way of life. The jihad won't like this one bit.
Europe take notes.
UPDATE: The NRA has announced they will file myriad lawsuits in various cities against draconinan gun laws. Hope springs eternal!
UPDATE: From Patriot Post:
In the most important Supreme Court decision of the decade, District of Columbia v. Heller, a majority of justices ruled today that the Second Amendment is indeed constitutional. Not only that, but they reaffirmed that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right, and that the District of Columbia's ban on handguns is unconstitutional. The Court was split 5-4, with Justice Antonin Scalia writing the majority opinion.
"Logic demands that there be a link between the stated purpose and the command," Justice Scalia wrote. "We start therefore with a strong presumption that the Second Amendment right is exercised individually and belongs to all Americans." Justice Scalia was joined on the majority opinion by Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Justice Clarence Thomas and Justice Samuel Alito.
We at The Patriot Post applaud the Court's majority in deciding that the Second Amendment means what it actually says, but we need to continue to urge our legislators to do the same. To that end, we invite you to sign The Patriot's petition affirming the Second Amendment's individual "right of the People to keep and bear arms."
If you have not already done so, I urge you to sign this petition today -- right now, please. We need more than 100,000 signatures in order for this petition to be given the attention it deserves from national leaders.
