    Fox POLL : Time to Put the Gun Issue to Rest?

    HIT THIS ONE ......

    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2010/...un-issue-rest/

    The Supreme Court on Monday extended the federally protected right to keep and bear arms to all 50 states, effectively invalidating Chicago's handgun ban. It's just the latest in a long line of challenges to America's right to bear arms. Is it time to put the issue to rest?

    I thought this poll was oddly worded. This case wasn't a challenge to America's RKBA; it was a challenge to the handgun laws violating the RKBA. The issue isn't settled. Even in states where the state-level constitution has a 2A analogue (some pre-dating the Bill of Rights), we have to fight for our RKBA all the time, precisely because the issue is never at rest.

    The first choice in the poll, that this issue should be reserved to the states and municipalities, and should not have been incorporated against the states, is a completely separate issue from whether or not the "gun issue" and RKBA are settled law.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
