DemocRATs are the worst enemies of freedom!!! They are much worse communists and NAZI. They are not only destroying freedom but at the same time promoting misery and despair and trying to drive everything into stone age. Look at Massachusetts with shrinking population - direct result of democRATic rule for half a century. But people here loves it and keep voting for these destructive creatures. So it serves them right. They deserve it. Where is the "change" they screaming screaming about? Hard to imagine more reactionary and brain dead people than here!

Now that everyone is allowed to carry a gun, the taxpayers should be off the hook from protecting the Supreme Court Judges, U.S. Senators, and the president, just to name a few VIPs that are well protected compliments of the taxpayer.

Since they can carry a firearm, there is no need to pay for extra protection.

The next time a Supreme Court Judge visits the inner city projects, they can feel safe. Oh that's right they never go to those places in the country.

Right on Jim, and come next January when the country goes down the drain with the smooth-talker and Reid and Pelosi, those Justices will be the only bulwark between us and a total socialist nightmare.

The seditious four Injustices that tried to strip or rights should be impeached and thrown to the wolves.

BTW, still no mention of the Scotus decision in the online Berkshire Bird, I guess it goes against their biased socialist agenda. Note that I did no say liberal because they have crossed that line some time ago. The editor shoud be ashamed of himself.

The Left hates the Constitution.

Not only do they hate the 2nd Ammendment (as shown by the opinions of Souter, Ginsberg, Stevens and Breyer), but they hate the First and Fifth Ammendments if they are applied to people or organizations that disagree with them.

Mr. Bashour and other conservatives might want to temper their enthusaim for this verdict.

The Court was one Justice away from shredding the Second Ammendment, and opening the door to a police state, simply by judicial fiat.

In Massachusetts and California, courts have already told their people that they must accept gay 'marriage', and special interest groups have moved to keep those states' citizens from voting on the issue.

It's tyranny, but the Left hates the Constitution.

The Democrats worry so much about their rights being taken away from efforts to protect us from terrorism, but they are okay with people not being allowed to own guns which would effectively render the public helpless in the event of a police state or just in simple self defense. A police state is not farfetched at all. Look at history. Yes, take guns from the people because they are too stupid to be trusted with them. That's just another example of making people totally helpless and dependent. Many people may not like the decision and I can understand their fears, but gun ownership is not a right that should be taken away.

And Mr. Bashour, When you go to mass tomorrow with all the other right wingers make sure you have your gun where everyone can see it...maybe God will pour his blessings on it....or...eeegads....some Democrat who is against guns might attack you...then you'll have to shoot!! The only time we should have formed a militia and needed guns is when King Georgie "The Shrub" was appointed president..Shame on You!!!

What do you think "going to mass" entails? Is believing in God a bad thing Sharon? "Thou Shalt Not Kill" and "Thou Shall Not Steal" are keeping you alive. Get a clue. You are burned-out, living off the younger working people in this world. We all love your spirit but you can't hack it in this world anymore. Leave us alone and let us figure it out by ourselves. You are in no postion to hand out advive. Your IP address never floats.

Leslie, Leslie...you poor deluded right winger....No one said believing in God was a bad thing...believing in Guns is a bad thing!! And remember one of God's commandments is "Thou shalt not Kill"...and that's exactly what guns do....if you don't like the truth then that's YOUR problem...not mine! The only thing "burned out" is your attitude...Typical right wing blather...just like Jim Bashour's!! So maybe you need to "Get A Clue"...why don't you "Float" away with your opinion!!

Guns do not kill people.I know of many people with guns and none have killed anyone.Only a stupid democRAT like you who fosters the scum that does kill people will never understand that will you ? Look what the prisons are full of and then look at the base of the disgusting democRAT party. Keep them poor so you can contol them is the democRAT game.

Oh, so they should interpret the Constitution based on the inner city projects?

Shame on you! It was a law abiding gun owner that stopped the shooting at a Colorado church last December.

Gee, only a tool would try to equate a gangbanger shooting another over turf with a law abiding citizen having to shoot a 3AM intruder hellbent on a violent confrontation with the homeowner.
