‘A call to arms!’ Citizens, We’re 1 vote away from losing our right to bear arms

Here is the real headline…and it’s a frightening one: Supreme Court (barely) affirms fundamental right to bear arms or:

Supreme Court almost overturns fundamental right to bear arms!

Supreme Court (barely) affirms fundamental right to bear arms

The Second Amendment provides Americans a fundamental right to bear arms that cannot be violated by state and local governments, the Supreme Court ruled Monday in a long-sought victory for gun rights advocates.

The 5 to 4 decision does not strike down any gun-control laws, nor does it elaborate on what kind of laws would offend the Constitution. One justice predicted that an "avalanche" of lawsuits would be filed across the country asking federal judges to define the boundaries of gun ownership and government regulation.

But Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who wrote the opinion for the court's dominant conservatives, said: "It is clear that the Framers . . . counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty."
