The Dord of Darien

Musings from the Mayor of the Internet

The Right of the People

I’m sorry, but it’s been a whole week now, and I still can’t stop grinning about the Heller decision (Cato, Cato, Wiki, SCOTUSblog!). I love that they got this one done in time for tomorrow. Independence Day, motherfuckers.

In related news, does anyone know where I can get a big poster of Justice Scalia to hang on my bedroom wall? Dude’s my new hero.

Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.

We affirm the judgment of the Court of Appeals.

It is so ordered.
