The Importance of the Heller Decision
Contrary to what many of us may believe, the Constitution does not convey rights upon individuals. Our Founding Fathers had read John Locke and knew that we are endowed with certain rights. The purpose of the Constitution is to LIMIT government, not to bestow rights; just read the 9th and 10th Amendments.
Rarely does the U.S. Supreme Court deliver a ruling that confirms what our Constitution is all about. That is why the Heller decision will prove so important.
