Huge case before the Supreme Court concerning the 2nd Amendment will be decided tomorrow. It will have lasting effects on everyone in America one way or the other. The case involves Washington DC’s extreme restrictions on firearms and who’s outcome has been eagerly awaited.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Our constitution already guarantees our right to keep and bear arms. However, there’s controversy about the “right of the people” and a “well regulated militia”. Which does the 2nd Amendment refer to and protect? Sounds like both to me.

Most would agree to keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. It seems what’s being decided is whether or not ONLY criminals will be the ones having guns after this decision. If guns become illegal for everyone, then only criminals will have them. Law abiding persons will not have the means to protect themselves against armed criminals.

Anyway, as a person involved everyday in self defense, I am very anxiously awaiting this decision as I’m sure millions of you are as well.

  1. This is very interesting. I didn’t realize this issue was before the Supreme Court. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

  2. Supreme Court has ruled that individuals do have the right to have guns. This is a major victory for the people of Washington DC and the rest of America. Good job Supreme Court!

  3. Thank You for the great information. Most of these laws do not keep the guns out of the criminals hands, most criminals purchase guns illegally anyway, so the only ones left with guns will be the criminals.

  4. I guess I missed that one! I need to look into this more…
