The Armed American

The Supreme Court of the United States has another chance to willfully misinterpret the 18th century prose of the 2nd Amendment this session. The Court will hear McDonald v. Chicago in January, to determine “Whether the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is incorporated as against the States by the Fourteenth Amendment’s Privileges or Immunities or Due Process Clauses.” In other words, if the plaintiff prevails, forget your “well regulated Militia” and your state and local gun laws.

Some Americans can’t wait, and are already exercising their God-given gun rights:
