Faced With Plummeting Approval Ratings; Supreme Court Finally Issues Coherent Decision

How's this for coincidence? On the morning they awoke to a 26% approval rating, the Supreme Court finally issued a decision that doesn't fly in the face of all logic and decency.
For the first time in U.S. history, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that individual Americans have the right to own guns for personal use, and struck down a strict gun control law in the U.S. capital.

The landmark 5-4 ruling marked the first time in nearly 70 years the country's high court has addressed whether the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, rather than a right tied to service in a state militia.

In the majority opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia said the Second Amendment protected an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.
You suppose them giving rights to terrorists had anything to do with their 26% approval? Of course it does. I surmise if you poll them again after yesterday's decision on the child rapists it would be even lower.

Curiously, after today's ruling on the Second Amendment, the country's leading proponent of gun control--the unctuous Charles Schumer--is unavailable for comment for the first time in his life.


Still, what's disturbing is there are still four idiots on the high court who don't believe in the Second Amendment. They should be thankful five of their brethren saved them from facing an armed insurrection in this country.
