"'It was inevitable that the administration would turn to what they called 'private contractors' after the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and subordinate military commanders informed the President that the Army and Marines would be unreliable to carry out Operation Clean Sweep. Even the wholesale replacement of senior officers in the Pentagon could not induce the majority of U.S. soldiers to enforce the draconian laws passed after the Battle of Sipsey Street. The administration came to realize that the most they could count on was that the military would stay on the sidelines and not turn on THEM as 'domestic enemies' of the Constitution. ...'" ...

"My best friend is a Public Defender in Phoenix. ... he and I went to college together, and he is a big 2nd Amendment supporter ... We talked about Heller yesterday and here is what he has written ..." ...

"The most important things about Heller, other than the mere fact that it squarely addresses the Second Amendment, are that it is far more comprehensive than the national media are explaining. This is no mere overturning of the District of Columbia's pervasive gun ban, it absolutely establishes that the Second Amendment does indeed protect an individuals right to own and use firearms, as separate and distinct from any government controlled military organization. ..." ...

"In parts one and two, we looked in detail at the ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States. In this third part, we will examine the dissenting opinions. Dissenting opinions hold no rule of law, but are oftentimes cited as persuasive authority by those who wish to change laws or file additional lawsuits. They can even be used by a future court to overturn a previous decision."

"While we won in this case and SCOTUS affirmed that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is indeed an individual right and that the DC gun ban is unconstitutional, we came within one justice of losing on both counts. The Dissenting Opinions will help us understand why." ...

"Wilmette has suspended enforcement of its 19-year-old ordinance banning handgun possession in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that appears to invalidate such bans."

"In a 5-4 decision, the court struck down Washington, D.C.'s ban on handguns, a prohibition similar to those used in several major cities, including Chicago, and a handful of suburbs including Wilmette, Evanston, Winnetka and Oak Park."

"The U.S. Supreme Court D.C. v. Heller decision now makes it clear to all — the Second Amendment affirms an individual right to own firearms for the purpose of self-defense. Even though the Court’s opinion leaves room for laws regulating guns in schools and government buildings, as well as restricting “dangerous and unusual weapons,” these exceptions should be considered just that — exceptions. The opinion devotes only three pages to them, toward the end of a lengthy discourse on the historical basis for the individual right interpretation." ...

"When the case of District of Columbia v. Heller was before the Supreme Court, Mayor Bloomberg filed a brief in support of the District's handgun ban, arguing that a militia-only interpretation of the Second Amendment was necessary to keep New York City's gun laws intact. On Thursday, when the Supreme Court ruled against Mr. Bloomberg's position, the mayor claimed that the ruling was a "benefit" and would not affect any New York City laws. His claim was half-right. It is a benefit, but it's unlikely that it will not affect any New York City laws. In most of America, Heller will have little effect on state and local laws, because the vast majority of states already have an individual right to arms in their state constitutions. ..." ...

"Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign, recently acknowledged to ABC News that 'we've lost the battle on what the Second Amendment means.' His statement contradicts years of rhetoric from the organization about how it does not oppose gun ownership."

"Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled the Second Amendment means what it says ... Helmke and crew undoubtedly are feverishly trying to rework their strategies on how best to disarm as many citizens as possible."

"That Helmke virtually admitted his group has never embraced the 'right' to keep and bear arms ... was astonishing. The fact that he viewed this as a battle against his fellow citizens demonstrates just how far afield the anti-gun movement has strayed from mainstream America." ...

"Like the inhabitants of other formerly free societies, Americans are content to define 'freedom' in terms of those liberties we are permitted to exercise. Yesterday's Supreme Court ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller ... is perfectly in harmony with this self-defeating concept of 'freedom.'"

"... With an air of regal condescension, Scalia allows that the Second Amendment acknowledges and protects an individual right to armed self-defense. He then explicitly limits the extent to which that 'right' can be exercised, thereby redefining it as a State-conferred privilege." ...

"So, how does one lawfully get guns into DC? Even after Heller takes effect, it's a tough issue due to zoning:"

"Washington has no federally licensed gun stores, so nowhere in the city can residents buy a handgun legally."

"Not true, really. There is one licensed firearms dealer in the city. One Josh Sugarmann of the anti-gun shill group the Violence Policy Center." ...

"Ask them what they're charging for transfers. If they say they don't do them, remind them that, thanks in part to their kind's lobbying efforts, it is typically viewed a violation of federal law to hold an FFL and not be in the business of dealing firearms."

"It didn't take many calls over the weekend to leave us with the impression that Mayor Bloomberg is mistaken in his assertion that the Supreme Court's decision on the right to keep a gun is not going to have an impact on New York's regulation of guns. It is true that the Supreme Court ruled on only one case, ordering the District of Columbia to issue a permit to Dick Heller to enable him to keep his pistol in his home. But the interpretation that the court gave to the Second Amendment — that it is an individual, civil right — was so ringing that it immediately was greeted with lawsuits against the most restrictive jurisdictions in the country. These started with Chicago and San Francisco. It is hard to imagine that New York is not going to be the target of suits as well." ...

"For the first time ever, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the Second Amendment conveys an individual right to keep and bear arms." ...

"The ruling came just days before Georgia House Bill 89 goes into effect. HB 89 allows Georgia firearms license holders to carry guns in state parks, on public transportation, and in restaurants that serve alcohol, as long as the permit holder does not drink."

"'I'm excited about it. I think it's a wonderful thing,' said Andy Briggs, a 20-year veteran of law enforcement, about District of Columbia v. Heller."

"He expected the court to rule in favor of Dick Heller ..."

"The Supreme Court, in its 5-4 decision last week, effectively stood the plain language of the Constitution on its head when it ruled that the right to bear arms, guaranteed under the Second Amendment, was an individual rather than a collective one."

"This reversed the reading of the Constitution long established in American law." ...

"Presented with two historically plausible arguments about whether the Second Amendment secures an individual right to keep and bear arms, the Supreme Court on Thursday opted for the interpretation less suited to a 21st century America bedeviled by gun crime. That's the disappointing part of the court's long-awaited ruling striking down the District of Columbia's strict gun-control ordinance. Fortunately, even though the decision endorses the individual-right explanation, it may have limited influence."

"Gun-rights advocates will focus on what they will see as the magic words ... 'There seems to us no doubt ... that the Second Amendment conferred an individual right to keep and bear arms.' ..."

"THE gun lobby has finally won its dream ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court, but could it be that this is just the breakthrough which can finally lead to sensible gun control?" ...

"Scalia also wrote, 'Nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of firearms.'"

"The way, then, seems to lie open to what many gun-control advocates have argued all along are regulations that most people would consider common-sense safety precautions." ...
