We're a shoot-to-kill society, and the fact that 7 idiots can uphold that decision shows how wasteful and depleted of reasoning our country and justice system are.
The only thing the Supreme Court did was to affirm a right granted to us under the Second Amendment. Criminals are going to acquire and carry guns regardless of the law; we law-abiding citizens should at least have the ability to legally protect ourselves from those criminals who seek to hurt or otherwise take advantage of us. The law as it currently stands applies only to handguns (rifles and pistols) and not to semi-automatic weapons, although this will surely be an issue of litigation in the future. If we are to allow the possession of handguns for self-protection, then rifles and pistols should be considered ample and semi-automatic and similar weapons should not be permitted.
Well said Corey.
Corey and B, I'm sorry to say this, but you guys are both law-abiding lunatics for even thinking that guns should be legal other than for military defense warfare use. But hey, why bother saying anything more, this could've all been prevented 300 years ago if those law-abiding citizens sought to it that guns will remain within the parameter of warfare and defense from other nations.
