Bearing Arms...

...it ain't just for Florida anymore! Washington D.C., welcome to the United States of America!

Congratulations to the Supreme Court for managing to find four highly-educated people who still have no grasp on the US Constitution. No one puts it any better than Ted Nugent -- one of the most colorful and eloquent Second Amendment activists -- in his piece, "DC Gun Ban Blown Away," on Human Events.
[...] "Just as we wouldn't need confirmation that our choice of religion is indeed an individual right, or that we could possibly need a government permit to express our individual thoughts in speech, good Americans will continue to fight for the return of our sacred 2nd Amendment rights where someday soon we will not need a government issued license to keep and bear arms. After all, from the supreme court of common sense on the not so mean streets of America, everybody I know understands clearly that 'keep' means one thing and one thing only: 'It's mine and you can't have it.' We know without question that 'bear' can only mean, 'Yes, I have it right here in my hands or within instant grasp,' nothing more and nothing less. And dare I explain 'shall not be infringed?' I hope not." [...]
As always, well said, Ted!

I think armed bears is a HORRIBLE idea. They already have claws, large fangs, and can run 30mph. Bad idea.

Hmmm... you may be right about that, Anonymous. The good news? We couldn't arm the bears even if we wanted to -- they couldn't pass the background check. ;o)
