Heller Decision – Like Getting Hit in the Face With a Bat
In America? RIDICULOUS!
Yet, today many of us are celebrating that the Supreme Court of the United States has affirmed that we have an individual right to keep and bear arms – sort of. Keep thinking about that for a moment and you might become as distressed as I am.
Yesterday’s Heller decision was a 5-4 vote. THINK ABOUT IT! 5-4.
With the swing of a single vote, you could have lost one of your fundamental rights. It doesn’t matter whether you own a gun or not. Personally, I wouldn’t get in a twist about having to quarter troops, but I’m still glad that I have the right to refuse (Amendment III).
God forbid, what if Justice Scalia retires or passes? Do you honestly want Barack Obama picking his replacement. It’s more likely that the next retirements will be Justices Stevens and Ginsberg. Would you still prefer Obama to pick THEIR replacements? Or John McCain?
Four Justices of the Supreme Court just said that the 2nd Amendment DOES NOT mean what it says. We’ve been forced, for many years, to put up with Justices who add imaginary “rights” literally out of the seats of their pants. That’s bad enough. What happens when they start deciding that it’s OK to simply void rights that are WRITTEN in the constitution? That is what four sitting justices have basically said.
That’s when you wake up and find that you can no longer say what you want, or gather with some of your friends, or attend the church of your choice (or perhaps have to go).
