I really like this Supreme Court! And Justice Kennedy may well be my favorite judge.
Not only did the Supreme Court get the Death Penalty case right yesterday in limiting the application of the Death Penalty, they nailed the 2nd Amendment Case today. Read the CNN Report: High Court Strikes Down Gun Ban.
Washington D.C.'s handgun ban not only failed to reduce gun deaths (they have actually increased since the ban), it seriously infringed on the 2nd Amendment and our rights as American citizens.
And, once again, the Court interpreted the Constitution and the law rather than legislate from the bench. They left intact the ability of states to REGULATE gun ownership, but prohibited an outright ban.
And those who wish to outlaw gun ownership will be forced to travel the legislative path toward a Constitutional Amendment and that is exactly as it should be.
By the way, Justice Scalia's majority decision is absolutely brilliant. Read it here.
