Supreme Court Strikes Down Washington, D.C. Gun Ban; Confirms 2nd Amendment is an Individual Right

The U.S. Supreme Court, in an historic decision, has ruled today that the Washington, D.C. gun ban is unconstitutional. Today's ruling went even further, confirming once and for all that the 2nd Amendment does in fact guarantee the RIGHT of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms for personal protection and hunting... just as the Founding Fathers had intended!

For those not familiar with the D.C. gun ban, the district enacted a law in 1976 that banned its citizens from possessing any functional firearms. This fascist gun ban even outlawed gun ownership in an individual's home. Similar gun bans exist in New York City and Chicago, though their legality is now effectively null and void. In fact, the National Rifle Association has already announced that it will file similar lawsuits in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs and New York City.

Oddly enough, statistics prove that such bans on private firearms ownership do nothing to curb violent crime. If anyone doubts this fact, do a search on the crime statistics for the cities mentioned above. Washington, D.C. routinely ranks as the most dangerous city in the nation. Chicago and New York are not much better!

Naturally, liberal politicians in Washington are outraged by today's Supreme Court decision. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) reacted by saying, "... I believe the people of this great country will be less safe because of it." Feinstein, who is a huge supporter of fascist gun-ban legislation, is also a professional hypocrite and elitist. You see, Sen. Feinstein is known to CARRY a .38 revolver on her person for personal protection! Chicago's fascist mayor, Richard Daley, called today's judgement, "A very frightening decision."

A frightening decision? Bad guys have guns. Bad guys have always had guns and will always have guns. That's the frightening part. Only the mentally incompetent and emotionally impotent would find something frightening about law-abiding citizens having the ability and means to protect themselves from evil.

Barack Obama, in a major hypocrite moment, is trying to jump on the bandwagon of the winning team by releasing a statement suggesting that he's a big supporter of 2nd Amendment rights. He's not fooling anyone! Let's not forget, he represented the city of Chicago in the Illlinois Senate and has consistently voted AGAINST gun-owner's rights. Obama has never seen a piece of anti-gun legislation he didn't like. In 1996, when Obama first ran for office, he answered a questionnaire citing that he not only supported banning private ownership of firearms, but even the sale and manufacture of firearms for private citizens!!

Today's ruling is a HUGE victory for all law-abiding Americans, not just gun owners. For today, at least in this case, the Supreme Court has managed to uphold the Constitution the way it was written and intended.

As a conservative and constitutionalist, I am so excited by today's ruling, that I cannot help but toss aside my writer's professionalism and close by saying this to the fascist gun grabbers like Barack Obama, Brady Gun Control Inc., Hillary Clinton and Dianne Feinstein...

I agree 100% with what you are saying here. I am in the process of writing an argumentative essay titled "Strict Gun Control is Dangerous", I would have gone with unconstitutional too but I wanted to focus mainly on the dangerous part. Is there anywhere that I could find the actual stats on the crime rate when the DC ban was implemented?

Good question. I would start with the NRA web site or perhaps do a google search on FBI crime statistics in Washington, D.C.
