Bye-Bye Ban!

Filed under Adventures with Maryn, Current Events, Politics

Yesterday the Supreme Court agreed to hear the Appeal by Washington D.C, to try and overturn the decision ruling their unconstitutional gun ban was, well unconstitutional (Parker vs D.C was the orignal case, being heard by SCOTUS as D.C, vs Heller).

This is a good thing, as it should finalize once and for all that the 2nd amendment means exactly what it says, and is the only gun control we need.

U.S. Supreme Court to Hear First Second Amendment Case Since 1939
Tuesday, November 20, 2007

Fairfax, Va. – The United States Supreme Court today announced its decision to take up District of Columbia v. Heller-a case in which plaintiffs challenge the unconstitutional gun ban in the nation’s capital. The District of Columbia appealed a lower court’s ruling earlier this year affirming that the Second Amendment of the Constitution protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, and that the District’s bans on handguns, carrying firearms within the home, and possession of loaded or operable firearms for self-defense violate that right.

The NRA will participate in this case through briefs as a friend of the court. Oral arguments are likely to take place in early 2008.

In March, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that “[T]he phrase ‘the right of the people,’ when read intratextually and in light of Supreme Court precedent, leads us to conclude that the right in question is individual.” The D.C. Circuit also rejected the claim that the Second Amendment does not apply to the District of Columbia because D.C. is not a state.

The decision marks the first time a Second Amendment challenge to a firearm law has reached the Supreme Court since 1939.

And really, that says it all.. no need to make fun of it more then that…

Edit: after looking around on the site for a bit. it looks like its actually a fake, none of the pictures go to any profiles or anything like that. But still, even the idea of a dating site targeted at WoW players is still pathetic enough to be humorous
