Supreme Court Deal Gun Nuts a Blow


The US Supreme Court has refused to hear a challenge to a Chcicago law barring the sale or possession of semi-automatic weapons that carry more then 10 rounds of ammunition. A law similiar to those in at least 8 other states.

The decision to not hear the case was 7-2, with only Thomas and Scalia dissenting.

It is also interesting to note- as conservative as this Supreme Court often is- they have routinely avoided cases that seek to protect or expand rights to carry weapons in public.

A small victory for sensibility maybe, but I’ll take it.

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
