Well the Supreme Court justices have really outdone themselves this time proving themselves to be the supreme asinines of the 21st Century. They have declared that everyone has the right to carry a handgun and to use it to "defend" themselves and their property, according to the Constitution of this great land.
For those ancient tenured bench potatoes who have nothing better to do in their lives than to sit and pour over the semantics of words and the intentions of the builders of our Constitution, these nearly senile old men have cornered every citizen of the United States of America into living by a Constitution that does not grow with the times and is stuck back in the age when we pulled out the big guns when someone we didn't like crossed out path.
We can now thank them for our paranoia as we eyeball everyone around us in fear that a gun-wielding freak may be stalking us or a trigger-happy nut on the highway slammers a battery of bullets into us with a 22-caliber. Thank you very much, old men with the Texas-ranger fetish, for declaring the possession of firearms to be legal and the "right" of every citizen and for making us all feel so safe. Exactly what kind of insanity is running rampant through our justice system? And, why are we tolerating it?
America is getting lost in semantics over a Constitution that is being interpreted by men as old as it is. It's time for more than just a change of men running the White House. It's time for us to bid the justices of the Supreme Court farewell after a short, sweet tenure where they cannot hold this country back from civilized progress just because they have outlived their sanity and interpret ancient words so very literally without regard to the passing of time.
We need new blood in our justice system -- people who are unafraid to kick ass and say "NO" to the NRA and to stand up for the REAL rights of the PEOPLE! It's time to really evaluate the Constitutional words so that those words have meaning for TODAY'S citizens. It's time we put the justices in their place -- out to pasture -- when they get too old to have the proper vision for progress. And, it's time we give the lobbying NRA factions their just due: a boot in the ass!
