So the Supreme court acknowledged what our founding fathers clearly defined for us quite a long time ago, the citizens right to bear arms cannot be taken away. The reason it made it to the Supreme Court is due to Washington D.C. denying it's citizens the right to bear arms. You would think the courts ruling would carry some weight but apparently DC is going to stir it up. Here are a few quotes and links that should really concern every law abiding gun owner:

Washington mayor Adrian Fenty's disappointment was palpable. "More handguns in the District of Columbia will only lead to more handgun violence," he said.
Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley, bracing for an attack on his city's gun law. He said the Court's decision in District of Columbia v. Heller is "very frightening" for America.
"Why don't we do away with the court system?" Daley said. "The old West - you have a gun and I have a gun and we'll settle on the street."
My response to this: Chicago and DC are full of ruthless thugs preying on the unarmed citizenry. Arming the innocent will only deter crime. Hey Chicago mayor, how about this stat about how safe your city is:
Chicago, which passed a gun ban similar to D.C.'s 25 years ago, had 325 gun homicides last year!
Not to good huh mayor? Sounds like Iraq is a safer place than Chicago.
Hey mayor. Guess what? If you let your citizens own and carry guns that statistic could have been reduced, if even by one and that would be SUBSTANTIAL! But instead you insist that the citizens should leave the crime deterring to the cops who, due to the law of reality, can't be everywhere all the time!
