The 2nd Amendment's Day In Court

by Oliver North - February 15th, 2008 -

WASHINGTON -- When the Council of the District of Columbia enacted the toughest gun control law in the nation in 1976, the city fathers -- according to what they said at the time -- believed they were making our nation's capital a safer place. The measure failed miserably. Since passage, the murder rate in the District has skyrocketed by more than 200 percent. Now, the U.S. Supreme Court has a chance both to make our capital safer and to ensure that the Second Amendment to our Constitution is enshrined as an individual right for every law-abiding American.

After Kelo, I am not holding my breath. As this article notes, our own Department of Justice is ambivalent about protecting the rights guaranteed in our Constitution. This is while a Republican is President. With the tyrannical position of Democrats, that our Constitution guaratees rights to government militias against the people, there is little likelihood that the DOJ would not come out in favor of the Washinton DC law pre-empting the Constitution if a Democrat was currently President. Banning guns is the official position of the Democrat Party.

We still have a majority of 5 liberals on the court. Whether the 4 conservatives can find one liberal who cares about our Constitution to side with them is the entire question. I pray they can find one. If not, we are headed down a road to tyranny that will only end in our second civil war.

The Justices are starting to understand how angry the people are becoming. Whatever the decision is, the court will try to waffle the wording and get their way without angering the American people who believe in the Constitution or the liberals who want to throw it out.
