This is a story that cropped up as I have been changing my news gathering techniques to take advantage of a program I found called rss2email that allows me to convert RSS feeds to email messages, and thus to obtain feeds from sources I have not succeeded in getting email bulletins from.
The Supreme Court appears inclined to accept a constitutional right to keep and bear arms. I might not like a conservative Supreme Court for a bunch of reasons, but as my favorite professor points out, police are–to put it mildly–more respectful in places where people may have weapons, and the ability of the people to take up arms is a final bulwark against tyranny and the police state.
In this era, that’s important. Even if I’m nearly two months late on the story.
