The Constitution Is Still Valid

Here's some change I can live with: the Supreme Court declaring that the Constitution is still in fact in effect and that all 50 states have the right to bear arms. That being said, some of those places that took it upon themselves to say, "No, you can't have guns because they cause crime!" are finding themselves walking around like a dog with it's tail between it's legs as they scramble to find ways to control the citizens of their cities.

It will be interesting to see how this new ruling will affect the gun owning community and activist who take on the government to try and repeal some of the gun laws that have been placed in the past few years. It will be even more interesting to see how the recent economy and economic hardships will come into play with this as well. With more people out of work, crime rates have gone up and people feel the need to want to protect themselves. Maybe there will be some good coming out of Obama's presidency, that being, Americans will wake up and realize we've been making mistakes left and right for the past few years and it's time to clean house.

On a closing note, I have this to say about some of those silly gun laws that restrict gun ownership to one gun or one every so often: think of your wardrobe. Think of all the different things you have to wear for different seasons. Different occasions. Different activities. You don't just have one outfit and one pair of shoes and that's it. You have many. The same applies to guns. There is no "one in all" gun. Don't tell people they can only have one. Each gun has it's purpose. If they can afford multiples and are of good moral standing, don't limit them. Hopefully California can get some of their stupid laws repealed because I would be more inclined to visit if they did.
