    FACE OFF: Supreme Court gun ruling protects law-abiding citizens' rights
    BY BARBARA HOWARD

    In June, when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Washington, D.C.’s 32-year-old gun ban, gun enthusiasts hailed the historic ruling as, “a great moment in American history” as Wayne La Pierre, vice president of the NRA, said.

    At the same time, liberals like D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty, lamented that the ruling would “lead to more handgun violence.”

    While I sympathize with the D.C. mayor, I fail to see what impact the tough ban has had on gun violence. In fact, statistics show that the only effect the ban had was that law-abiding citizens could not defend themselves in their own homes.

    Slowly, the mindset is changing, perhaps. I liked this:

    Unfortunately, many communities refuse to even acknowledge their gang problem, even though many citizens express fear of continual violence in their neighborhoods and fear for their children.

    Funny, I can’t find one reference to people being afraid of the NRA or law-abiding citizens having guns.

    Really? Must not read much. Pick up a copy of the DC or NY newspaper some time.

    Nice to see that some of the anti's are becoming less so. It's a trend that I hope to see continue for many years!
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    It has to be a very small newspaper... never heard of it before.
    Still, a refreshing change of attitude.
