"Warning Shot to Liberals: Supreme Court Affirms Gun Rights" - Patriot Update Not!! The author states that the recent Supreme Court decision should be a sign unto liberals that the second amendment still stands. I beg to differ, and here's why. Yes the second amendment was upheld 5-4 and it is a no brainer as to who the dissenters were. But this should have been a unanimous decision if our justices truly understood the Constitution. The lack of consensus should be a warning sign for gun owners that the fight is not over. We are close to putting another liberal on the bench who has little regard for the Constitution and there may be yet another in the near future. Our Secretary of State is in talks with the UN over a small arms treaty that, if ratified, would ban small arms in the US as well as world wide. So while this decision is a victory, it doesn't mean we have entirely won the war. What the libs are really hoping for is that gun ownership will no longer be a critical issue in the upcoming elections. We need to show them that nothing could be further from the truth, that we will be ever vigilant as to our constitutional rights.
