Someone asked me the other day why I hadn’t blogged about DC v Heller, the Supreme Court Gun Control case that was decided a few days ago.
I replied – “Because it’s the outcome that I had always hoped for – and the one that I expected to see…”
I’ve been an advocate of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms since the day that I read the Bill of Rights and truly felt as if I understood what it meant – I feel just as strongly about the other amendments and the rest of the Constitution as well.
Prior to 9/11, I was nearly a single issue voter – that issue was gun control. A candidate’s stance on this issue tended to embody for me what I perceived to be that candidate’s view on most of the Constitution – even though that wasn’t quite true in most of the cases.
Now that the core issue is decided, I’m looking forward to the next 20 years of court decisions dealing with individual and specific issues related to this ruling.
Oh, and to all of you who I’ve argued this issue with who were on the other side of the issue – I told you so.
