Let freedom ring. Let the white Dove sing!

po. Curt. You must be poopin your pants!

In these end of the term decisions, individual freedom over the prerogative of Big Brother has been the big winner.

The Supreme Court Thursday ruled that New Yorkís regulations that made it difficult to obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun were unconstitutionally restrictive, and that it should be easier to obtain such a license.

The existing standard required an applicant to show "proper cause" for seeking a license, and allowed New York officials to exercise discretion in determining whether a person has shown a good enough reason for needing to carry a firearm. Stating that one wished to protect themselves or their property was not enough.

The justicesí 6-3 decision is expected to ultimately allow more people to legally carry guns on the streets of the nationís largest cities ó including New York, Los Angeles and Boston ó and elsewhere. About a quarter of the U.S. population lives in states expected to be affected by the ruling, the high courtís first major gun decision in more than a decade.

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for the majority that the Constitution protects ďan individualís right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home.Ē

    Yeah, I was watching the left. It wasn't quite as funny as when Trump won, but it provided humor. Of course, it's a constitutional crisis, and because of this we'll turn in to the wild west (hot a horrible thing where I live). Of course, if you live in a gang infested ghetto, this could create a problem. I guess the flip side is that we wouldn't have to worry about the likes of Charlie m and his gang.
