Hi, First post! I'm a long time shooter and CCW holder. I have been lurking for years and figured it was time to join the discussion.
The supreme court voted 5-4 in favor of citizens rights to bear arms. Until today the supreme court had never ruled one way or the other regarding the "state and local militia" confusion. Today they clearly ruled that the citizens do have the right even if a state or local militia exists. Washington DC is lifting its unconstitutional gun ban because of this landmark ruling. It's a great day to be a law abiding citizen, ccw holder, and an American. Now all we need is a universal ccw. I won't hold my breath though. Tim
