Good News from the Supremes

I haven't read the actual decision yet, but Newsmax is reporting that the Supreme Court of the United States, in a 5-4 decision, ruled that the Second Amendment applies equally to the federal government and to the states. I expect the usual legal bullshit allowing exceptions for certain safety and public interest issues, and as expected Justice Sotomayor is anti-Second Amendment, but overall this is good news. The Second Amendment is the last Constitutional Amendment to be recognized as applicable to the states through the 14th Amendment.

The breaking news story is here at Newsmax.
