Urgent: Supreme Court to Hear Appeal of D.C. Ban on Handguns
In what is expected to be a decision that will have significant political impact in an election year, the Supreme Court announced on November 20th
that it would hear an appeal by the District of Columbia
on the striking down of its ban on handguns.
The announcement represents the potential, given that there are four Federalist Society pro-NRA justices on the Court (Alito, Scalia, Roberts, and Thomas), that for the first time in United States history the Supreme Court may declare an individual - as distinct from a collective right - to own firearms.
The decision that the Supreme Court will render will affect the entire country. As the most heavily armed nation in the world--with 90 guns for every 100 citizens--and consequentially the most violent industrialized nation on earth, the last thing the USA needs is for the Supreme Court to open the flood gates of anarchy on this issue.
300,000 Americans have been killed by guns in the past decade on US soil. Let's hope the Supreme Court does right in their honor by upholding the collective right to bear arms interpretation to stem the deadly toll from guns in this country.
