    Parker v. D.C. may be headed for the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Brady Campaign is worried. In the case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit declared that the right to arms is an individual right, not limited to active-duty members of the militia, and that D.C.’s bans on handguns, and on having guns assembled and loaded at home, violate the Second Amendment.

    The announcement by D.C. city officials that they are considering appealing to the Court has sent the Brady Campaign into panic mode. Brady president, Paul Helmke, blurted out that "The D.C. law is an easy one to shoot at. Factually, it’s a tougher one to get behind and defend. Why is this the one we’re going to be taking up to the Supremes?"

    It does my heart good to see the Brady Bunch fearful of a court case for a change :)

    The wording in the DC circuit's opinion does give hope, because they carefully looked at the wording of other documents and writings contemporary to that of the Constitution. There was a liberal lawyer/activist who commented that deciding against the intent of the 2A (individual vs corporate) would create that 'slippery slope' that could send what's left of the rest of the Bill of Rights down the toilet.

    But that's the intent. I keep asking the Brady Bunch why they are afraid for me to have a weapon for self-defense and why they think they know more than Jefferson, Madison, Henry et al...

    But this is going to be a nail biter! :eek:

    Naw, not really. If the SCOTUS decides 2A pertains to states and not individuals, the S will HTF sooner than later, black markets for firearms, ammo and related material will blossom. If they do the right thing and agree it pertains to the individual and not the state as a whole, then hopefully a bunch of draconian gun control laws will go away.

    Either way, I'm keeping my stuff and probably getting more.
