Firearms Industry Hails Victory in Supreme Court Second Amendment Case

NEWTOWN, Conn -- The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) - the trade association for the firearms industry - hailed today's United States Supreme Court 5-4 decision written by Justice Alito that ruled the individual right to keep and bear arms protected by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution applies to the states and local government.

"Today's ruling is a victory for freedom and liberty," said NSSF President Stephen L. Sanetti. "All law-abiding Americans, no matter whether they live in a big city like Chicago or in rural Wyoming, have the same Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Constitutional rights don't stop at state or city borders. Cities like Chicago and New York and states like California must now respect the Second Amendment."

The case before the Court, McDonald v. City of Chicago, was filed in 2008 a day after the Supreme Court's landmark decision in District of Columbia v. Heller -- in which the high court reaffirmed that the Second Amendment protects an "individual" right to keep and bear arms. The Heller decision, however, did not reach the question of whether the Second Amendment also applied to the states.

Immediately after Heller, several Chicago residents including retired maintenance worker Otis McDonald filed a federal lawsuit challenging the city's long-standing gun ban. The Chicago-based federal courts ruled that the Second Amendment did not apply to the states and local governments, setting the stage for the Supreme Court to decide the question it left unanswered in its Heller decision.

"Today's decision marks the beginning of a new era of civil rights litigation as laws and regulations that infringe upon and violate the individual right of law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms, protected by the Second Amendment, are challenged," said NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lawrence G. Keane. "As the trade association for America's firearms industry, our members make the products through which our Second Amendment rights are realized. Just as the First Amendment protects and shields newspapers and media, the Second Amendment secures constitutional protections for our industry."

NSSF filed an amicus curiae brief on behalf of McDonald.

Like you said before. With the financial crisis, and now BP. Obama dosn't need to attack an American industry...and jobs. But this is good new indeed ! I am very happy.

Default Re: Still thiking that the Obama presidency will be a nuisance for gun rights?

Ahhh yea, because no one can afford the fucking things now..
he's just fallowing the plan:
WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: Obama's agenda: Overwhelm the system

Barack Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos 末 thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.

Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University , class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University . They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

末 Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

末 Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around."

末 Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.

末 Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America . But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.

末 Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions 末 including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America . The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.

末 Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.

With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme 末 all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama using the Cloward and Piven Plan.

"There is a time for peace, and talk, and reason. And then at long last, and with weariness of heart and admission that all your words have been for nothing, you must go kill you some motherfuckers and set some of their shit on fire."

"America is at that awkward stage where it's too late to change things from within and too early to shoot the bastards."

"I am not the means to any end others may wish to accomplish. I am not a tool for their use. I do not surrender my treasures to be flung to the winds as alms for the poor."

Yeah, it's only now that people are claiming the president is working to destroy the government and country, coincidentally enough because he's a black Democrat.

Shit, I don't even think he and the Democrats are doing that great of a job (not that I really expected them to), but to place all of our woes on his back is disingenuous - if he's at all adding to the pathetic shitpile that this nation is crumbling down to, it's certainly not his administration that started building the damn thing in the first place. Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, and Bush II all shoveled it nicely.

Let's see: Decades of outrageous and useless military spending, pointless and expensive wars (all paid for with deficits), NAFTA, unrealistic tax cuts for the rich who don't need them while transferring the burden to the middle and lower classes, the encouragement of layoffs in and the gutting of the American industrial economy for the sake of short term profits, not maintaining our infrastructure, bowing down to corporate interests whose plans are not aligned with those of regular citizens, and introducing a police state mentality to our law enforcement services. Oh, and running our financial system on fairy tale notions and pixie dust promises instead of solid regulation and conservative fiscal practices.

God damn, the sad part is, there's probably even more fucked up crap that has happened and is happening in this nation.

We've thrown the country to the wolves, kicked the lower classes to the curb, and replaced realistic political discourse and policy with conspiracy theories, brainless cheerleading, and insidious and manipulative fearmongering. "OH BUT THE LIBERALS DO IT TOO SO IT'S OK!". It's not, when they do, and it doesn't justify a right response (especially when that response is just more fearmongering). And the bigger issue is, who the hell is in charge of the media that pumps out worthless garbage every hour of the day? Right wing or corporatist business interests - but oh no, don't make the mistake of thinking that they're on your side because you lean right. They'd more than likely hire someone to spit and piss on you for their amusement, than they would shake your hand and call you a brother in political arms.

Same for any shithole elected official you might cheerlead for - he doesn't care about you or your family or your city, state, OR country. He just wants your vote (and maybe he doesn't even need that, if electronic voting machines aren't accountable for the results), so that he can be elected and either try to implement shitty social engineering legislation, or get a hookup to the corporate money machine, or god forbid, do both.

And both will gladly distract you with petty issues of immigration, and welfare (god forbig poor people get a shithole to live in and peanut butter and crackers to eat), and national healthcare (which you can't fuck up in this country any more than it already is, and which shouldn't be such a flim-flam problem), threats and promises of war, and pointless issues like gay marriage. Because keeping us all angry and at each other's throats keeps up from going after theirs, the self-serving, self-righteous political fuckheads who really deserve to be strung up, burned alive, cut into bits, and then force-fed to their cronies for being the corrupt avatars of worthless cynicism, graft, and jellyfish ineffectualness that they are.

You think Obama and the Democrats are going to fuck this nation? You really think so? Pull the political dick out of your mouth man, open your eyes, and look the hell around. This country has already gone to shit. S-H-I-T. Shit, pure and utter. The rose colored glasses and soothing whispers of political horseplay aren't going to disguise this mess for much longer.

After all that as you say, you might as well just blow your brains out.

People will finally wake up when they are ALL jobless, starving, and sleeping under bridges. Obama didn't wreck this country. This country got it's free ticket to the shitter when Jimmy Carter took office. Americans are too fucking stupid and cowardly to actually stand the fuck up and even TRY to make a difference. I've been all over the world and believe me when I say, Americans are lazy fucking cowards !! We want change...blah blah blah, change change change. God forbid we stand the fuck up and work...or heaven forbid fight for it. Won't happen. We're a nation of cowards and prostitutes.

Well I own two (2) I'd say they are micro businesses because I have 1.5 employees one of them being me for both. I work my ass off to keep them going. One is a construction business which is absolutely sh't right now, I've lost to many jobs since housing has been devalued so much and my customers can't get a equity loan to improve the house that they live in and own (well sort of) If banks do not lend we are doomed, they hold our asses in a sling.

actual problem is money

wish we could get back to simple trade system,
but we got to drastically reduce population before applying it

no money = no corruption = no bad politicians

even my dog knows it

No we need to start prosecuting these corrupt politicians and making examples of them. Let them see what it feels like to live in fear and wonder where your next meal will come from.
