Well there is more good news from Washington DC to go along with building a border fence. In District of Columbia vs Heller, by a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment does support private citizens owning handguns.
Naturally Sen. Diane Feinstein [D-CA] thinks private citizens owning handguns will make the streets more dangerous. I am sure she will use Moscone as proof on how dangerous handguns are while ignoring how mentally unbalanced the attacker was - we got exposed to the Twinkie Defense with this case. Which in today's ruling, Justice Scalia for the majority, acknowledges that the state does have certain responsibilities to keep weapons from criminals and the mentally ill.
And most interesting of all, the dissenting judges who tend to find inspiration in foreign law were claiming nowhere did the Constitution support the majority opinion. For once they are trying to be originalists. How nice.
