We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Being reported as 5-4, same as Heller - have not yet seen much on the four (OK, Thomas wrpte a concurrence, not a disagreement?) but womder if like Heller it was actually unanimous in most respects? Then again, there is Justice Stevens, who seems to think that even having an individual right governments can override it at whim...
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented in Heller and wondered why the right to bear arms was necessary to extend to the states. "[I]f the notion is that these are principles that any free society would adopt, well, a lot of free societies have rejected the right to keep and bear arms."
Justice Ginsburg needs to recognize that we don't need to adopt the right to keep and bear arms. The founders already adopted it, and the rest of us plan to keep it.
If you think the 2nd Amendment is out-of-date, you campaign for a new amendment to alter it. Good luck with that -- but that's the Constitutional route.
