In its second major ruling on gun rights in three years, the Supreme Court Monday extended the federally protected right to keep and bear arms to all 50 states. The decision will be hailed by gun rights advocates and comes over the opposition of gun control groups, the city of Chicago and four justices.

I think this is GREAT because gun laws only work for those that FOLLOW laws. You take the guns away from those that follow the law the ones that DONT will be the only ones with them and they will KNOW you dont have one! What do you think?

  • Unfortunately, the City of Chicago already had a contingency plan for losing - they're changing all their gun laws to make it nearly impossible for anyone to afford to get a permit and make them wait as long as they can (even if it's years). I wonder how long it will be before their little game costs someone their life and they find themselves back in court again. They've been DC'd. Now they need to be Denver'd.

  • Reloading is still cheaper but you have to have the equipment (and lets be honest - the brains to handle gunpowder safely, which I would consider common sense, but look how many people can't even figure out you shouldn't text and drive).

  • This is so a slap in the face to the Libs. It's not going to help the middle class in Chicago though because Obama has alreaady made it almost impossible to affor or even find ammunition. IF they can afford the gun and all the red tape they may have to go south for bullets.

  • What about reloading? Do they have rules against that in Chicago too? I know here in NY even with the up front cost of the equipment it's still cheaper for us in the long run.
