U.S. Department of Justice: Second Amendment protects an individual right "The U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel of the United States was charged by the attorney general with addressing 'the question whether the right secured by the Second Amendment belongs only to the states, only to persons serving in state-organized militia units like the National Guard, or to individuals generally.' The answer was definitive: 'The Second Amendment secures a right of individuals generally, not a right of states or a right restricted to persons serving in militias.'"
Well, that's good. Can we start locking up little tin fascists like "the San Francisco Board of Supervisors . . . [who] are trying to curb the rights of all city residents to keep handguns in their homes."? Or how about "Pizza Hut and AOL [who] forbid employees to bring even legally owned and transported guns onto company property or to carry them on the job. Pizza Hut recently fired an employee for carrying a gun while delivering pizzas; the company learned of the violation when the employee used the gun on the job to defend himself during a robbery attempt." Actually, while I disagree with AOL and Pizza Hut's policy, here -- and I might actually stop eating at Pizza Hut over this one -- it is their right to have these requirements. I mean, no one would think it was a violation of your first amendment rights if the company forbade discussion of politics or religion on the job. I would think the 2nd Amendment works the same way.

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
