Second Amendment supporters – you have something to hang your gun rack on. Monday, the United States Supreme Court ruled that all 50 states have federal protection for the right to keep and bear arms. Chicago and Washington D.C., were in favor of handgun bans, despite an obvious conflict with our Second Amendment which guarantees all citizens the right to keep and bear arms.
The NRA stated its opposition to Elena Kagan’s nomination, as well as Sonia Sotomayor’s during her confirmation process. Both women favor gun control. Predictably, Sotomayor was one of 4 dissenters in Monday’s decision.
