The Second Amendment

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The Supreme Court held yesterday that Washington D.C.'s ban on handguns served as an unconstitutional infringement on the right to keep and bear arms. There are those who laud the decision, thinking it is essential to helping us defend ourselves from our government and/or those who may enter our homes. There are others who think this is absolutely the wrong decision, and that the Framers could have never intended that there would be an absolute ban on regulating firearm ownership.

I think this is the right decision. More on why at a later time.
