America: 1776-1984

The Supreme Court is going to rule Monday* on whether or not the Constitution counts anymore. Of course, we can make an educated guess on how they’re going to rule.

Interestingly enough, they chose to wait and rule at the last minute before the summer dismissal to rule. I would imagine that most of them will be out of the country. Smart move on their part.

We can expect quite a big response to this. Some will be whining about it, but I'm sure most will be defending the decision. The Brady Bun--…er…Campaign will probably be parading in the streets, but only if they get a permit to exercise their First Amendment Right.

Free Speech is a privilege, not a right. Otherwise, why would you have to get a permit?

Freedom against unreasonable searches and seizures is a privilege, not a right. Otherwise, why would the Strike Teams break into houses after natural disasters and take away any protection against looters or ask to see your papers at unlawful roadblocks, for no apparent or lawful reason.

Powers delegated to the States or to the people are privileges, not rights. Otherwise, why would the Federal Government -- among other things -- remove thousands of National Guard troops from border states, while the state legislatures beg them to allow the “National Guard” to “Guard the Nation”.

So, why should the Second Amendment be any different?

[UPDATE] 6/26: The Supreme Court has ruled against the D.C. Gun Ban. Huzzah!
