U.S. Supreme Court ---- Individuals Have The Right To Bear Arms

The United States Supreme Court made the historical decision today that the right to bear arms belongs to the individual American. When the founders of this nation wrote ---"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed"--- the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision said, (what I have said along with many others), that the comma in the 2nd amendment between "a free state" and "the right of the people" literally meant that this right was granted to the individual in addition to a "well regulated militia" to provide the security of a free state. This is one of the most monumental decisions ever made by today's Supreme Court that recognizes the individual right to possess a gun. Gun owners can thank George W. Bush (in part) for appointing two conservative justices that certainly made the difference in this decision.
