OKLAHOMA SENATOR TOM COBURN SAYS

SCOTUS gun ruling a prelude to bigger fights on individual rights

Briefly quoting the Daily Caller item linked above:

“The Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision striking down Chicago’s gun law in the McDonald v. Chicago case was a significant victory for Second Amendment rights but it also exposed how tenuous our fundamental constitutional rights have become, and the extent to which our freedoms have eroded.”

“The Chicago gun ban was so obviously unconstitutional it begs the question of why the vote was even close. The American people, unlike many in Washington, understand that the Second Amendment, like the First Amendment, recognizes an individual right no matter if you live in a federal territory or a state. Our founders emphasized the importance of this right to protect ourselves, which is why they listed second in the Bill of Rights.”

There is a lot more there, and all of it worth chewing on.
