NRA’s next target: Re-arming Chicago

The National Rifle Association, with today’s U.S. Supreme Court opinion rejecting the District of Columbia’s handgun ban, has launched plans for further legal challenges in cities like Chicago and San Francisco where other bans now exist.

In its first conclusive interpretation of the Second Amendment, the high court affirmed it includes an individual right to own firearms, not merely a right for states to form armed militias.

The Constitution does not permit “the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home,” Justice Antonin Scalia said in the majority opinion. More from WorldNetDaily

Good for the NRA!  We must support them in their efforts.  It is usually not legally owned firearms that are used in the commission of a crime and these unconstitutional gun restrictions are not stopping the criminals.  If anything, they prevent the honest, responsible citizen from protecting themselves.
