Today the Supreme Court ruled that it is impermissable for the District of Columbia to prohibit the possession or use of a handgun to defend the home. The decision is only 5-4. That means that the right of a citizen to defend his home with the most popular and useful weapon for this purpose is one vote away from extinction!
In fact this decision is a home run for Second Amendment fans. However, I write in the style one gets used to from the Left whenever a 5-4 decision goes their way. Fortunately, for them another 5-4 decision struck down a law allowing the death penalty for those who rape very y0ung children. So the ACLU can now say "The Right To Rape A Child Without Fear Of Death hangs by a thread!"
The deciding vote in these cases was Anthony Kennedy who thinks the Constitution protects anybody's right to kill somebody invading their home but does not allow the considered judgment of a legislature, after exhaustive due process, to end the life of a child rapist.
