Monday Great News.

It seems that clinging to your guns is, indeed, protected by the Constitution. The Ninth Circuit opines in the case Nordyke v. King. More here, including pointing out this conclusion:
We therefore conclude that the right to keep and bear arms is “deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition.” Colonial revolutionaries, the Founders, and a host of commentators and lawmakers living during the first one hundred years of the Republic all insisted on the fundamental nature of the right. It has long been regarded as the “true palladium of liberty.” Colonists relied on it to assert and to win their independence, and the victorious Union sought to prevent a recalcitrant South from abridging it less than a century later. The crucial role this deeply rooted right has played in our birth and history compels us to recognize that it is indeed fundamental, that it is necessary to the Anglo-American conception of ordered liberty that we have inherited.
This is going to get interesting; especially the response from Team Hopenchange. We must think of another excuse to trash gun owners in the US, sorry, Mexico...

What team Obama can't do in the legistlature, they will try through the UN. Support the NRA efforts to slam the UN gun ban efforts.
