Well, our good friend and resident troll Barry is a happy man tonight, because today the Supreme Court overturned 230 years of precedent and decided that the entire U.S. ought to be just like the Wild, Wild Old West -- where everyone's packing heat, and everyone can just shoot whomever and whatever they want.

But the Bush Administration isn't going to be satisfied with just the overturning of Washington, DC's handgun ban. No, the pencil-dicks in the Bush Administration want everyone to be packing heat in the country's National Parks, so that everyone can hunt for bears -- or stray tourists:

The Bush Administration proposed a repeal of the current law governing firearms in national parks in favor of new regulations that would allow for people to carry loaded, concealed weapons into the parks. This move would increase poaching in the parks, according to the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).

PEER released a statement Thursday arguing against the proposed change for its failure to consider environmental concerns. The organization blamed the proposal on the influence of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

"The Bush administration proposed the rules in response to a National Rifle Association campaign that threatened congressional repeal of the park service rules," it said. "The NRA has made no secret of its desire to increase hunting within national parks."

The right sure does love its guns. Funny how the Second Amendment is the only one they really care about. Funny how they have they don't care about the government sweeping up all phone calls and internet activity, but take away a big stick that shoots with power and they get their....panties....in a twist.

I missed that part. What page of the opinion is it on?

The page where Chris matthews says that if you live in a tough town like DC you should pack a pistol to walk home...just in case you feel threatened...
This way the whole country can be like Florida. Its all relative perception from this point on.

oh yeah, and if you have a felony on your record? Its unconstitutional not to let you apply (until they overturn the constitutionality of applications.)

and you need a pistol so you can have a free hand...right?

congrats y'all...now we can all be rapture ready, set, and go, for the hell hoardes of armegeddon...
and if a few kids get killed and hurt in the meantime? Well, at least they have their rights...or really, just some of 'em....

I'm sorry but this is one subject where I diverge. I DO believe the 2nd Amendment gives individuals the right to bear arms. This is a dangerous country. Not because people like me have handguns at home, but because, well, it's a dangerous country. We've got nutball christians, nutball muslims and well, just plain nutballs running around. Also, if you research a little history, one of the main reasons for the right to keep and bear arms is to give American the right to defend and protect themselves from the GOVERNMENT. George Washington said it is our duty to rise up against a tyrannical government. A government lost in its own power. I keep guns at home and when I travel specifically to protect myself against so called law enforcement in this country than so called "bad guys."
