Greetings, loyal minions. Your Maximum Leader sees that a majority of the Supreme Court of the United States agrees with his long-held belief that the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution does guarantee an individual’s right to keep and bear arms. In the long anticipated ruling in Heller v. District of Columbia the majority has apparently found that individuals may keep firearms (including handguns) for personal defence. Your Maximum Leader says apparently in this case because he’s not read the opinion yet. He is relying on the interpretation of others. (Those others being the good bloggers over at Volohk and SCOTUSblog. And in case you haven’t seen it elsewhere, clicky this linky for the majority and dissenting opinions.)

Your Maximum Leader plans on snuggling up with a nice Scotch, the Nats on TV, and a copy of the Heller decision tonight and read away.

Then he might go out and buy another gun… It’s his right afterall…

Carry on.

Yep! It is a good day for Liberty.

This is another example of why citizens need to be VERY careful of whom they vote into office. This SCOTUS ruling was by a razor-thin margin.
You get Obama in there, and *he* has a chance to nominate a Supreme Ct. judge? Wave bye-bye to the Constitution.

Indeed. Obama has said his appointment(s) to the Supreme Court would likely be of the same stripe as Kennedy, Stevens, Ginsburg, Souter, and Breyer. In other words, a non-originalist.

I also see (thanks to Volokh) that Justice Scalia is affirming an individual interpretation of the 9th amendement.

I shot a mag through the .45 yesterday to celebrate. After all, it is my right…
