    Default SCOTUS affirms Heller decision!

    Per the US Supreme court, in a ruling announced this morning (Thursday, 6/26/08), the Second Amemdment of the US Constitution upholds an individual right to bear arms, and the DC handgun ban is unconstitutional. Scalia wrote the decision for the majority.

    W00t! Let the repealing of bans roll! I really want to be able to bring my currently-illegal firearm to California one day...

    Nice to see the Supreme Court can read. LOL Anyway, they've been on a roll recently: Gitmo prisoners have a right to challenge their detention, there are unfair punitive damages in lawsuits, and now we have a right to bear arms. Maybe we can get them to revisit Kelo while they are in such a Constitution-friendly mood.

    This is about the only clear immediate effect of Shrub's administration...

    Clear, immediate positive effect? I can think of a few clear, immediate negatives off the top of my head.

    Of course.

    In the short and long term, justice nomination is possibly more important than anything else an administration does while in office.

    Were it possible to produce fully grown, memory-imprinted and licensed Antonin Scalias, I would support cloning.
