Supreme Court Strikes Down 32-Year Old Ban

The Supreme Court struck down DC’s 32-year old ban on handguns.

Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the presumptive Republican presidential nominee quickly put out a statement endorsing the decision, calling it a “landmark victory” for Second Amendment rights. “Today’s ruling . . . makes clear that other municipalities like Chicago that have banned handguns have infringed on the constitutional rights of Americans,” McCain said.

Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.), the Democrats’ all but certain nominee, also issued a statement saying that “I have always believed that the Second Amendment protects the right of individuals to bear arms, but I also identify with the need for crime-ravaged communities to save their children from the violence that plagues our streets through common-sense, effective safety measures.

Added Scalia: “At the rate of the increasing gentrification of the area, handgun’s won’t be much more of an issue for too much longer.”

Keep the guns indoors Fenty. Gotta do something now.
