    Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago might just be on to something here. Commenting on the hypocrisy of the SCOTUS ruling against D.C., the mayor said this: (quoted from msnbc)

    “You can’t carry a gun into the Supreme Court,” Daley said. “You can’t carry a gun in and around the Capitol building. You can’t get into a capital building without being searched,” Daley said. “So why should the streets of our American cities be open to someone carrying a gun? “Why can’t you stand outside the Supreme Court with a gun and say, ‘This is my constitutional right?’” he asked.

    I think he poses a good question. Why can't we carry in the SCOTUS chambers eh? :P

    Indeed. If the government has nothing to hide, then they shouldn't feel uncomfortable letting armed citizens into courthouses, offices, and other buildings.

    Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn from time to time.
    Bob Owens @ Bearing Arms (paraphrased): "These people aren't against violence; they're very much in favor of violence. They're against armed resistance."
