The Supreme Court made a ruling today on the Heller versus DC case and
affirmed for the first time since 1791 when the second amendement
passed - the right to own guns is an INDIVIDUAL right of all
Americans. Of course, it wasn't super special, since it did make it
clear that some prohibition is acceptable. :(

The scary part... The ruling was 5-4. The second amendement, which
says pretty damn clearly "shall not be infringed" was interpreted by 5
people (who beat 4) as meaning "can be infringed, as long as it's not
totally infringed". Once more vote for "No" and the second amendment
would have been abolished.
