My, that was close

The Supreme Court ruling on the Second Ammendment, that is. Five justices for and four against the ruling: that D.C.'s total ban on handguns is unConstitutional. The upholding of the Second Ammendment as specifiying an already existing individual right is a great victory. But the closeness of the decision causes me serious concern for the future. Especially since I expect McCain to tank as badly as Barry Goldwater ever did. And Obama is Mr Gun Control in the flesh.

I think you're right about McCain. Especially with choosing Sarah Palin. I mean, I like Palin, except she REMINDS ME of absolutely everything I dislike about McCain...

It's amazing that even when the bill of rights is so specifically spelled out it comes as close as 5-4 against gun control. It could very easily have gone the other way...
