    I'm assuming everyone has seen this?

    Yes it was a win, but with the 5-4 ruling it was way to close for comfort.
    I can not understand how the simple wording of the second amendment; "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bare arms, shall not be infringed", can in any way not be an individual right the same as in the 1st, 4th, 5th and 14th amendments?
    The simple answer is of course those 4 decenting members of the highest court in the land are following a political agenda instead of ruling on the wording and meaning of the Bill of Rights.

    On this 4th of July, our country's 234th birthday, I'm reminded of the wisdom of one of our founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, whom wrote on the original reason why the 2nd amendment was included in the Bill of Rights.

    "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
    Amen brother.
