Supreme Court Rules In Favor of Second Amendment

On June 26th, 2009 the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment gives Americans the right to keep a loaded gun at their home for self defense and hunting. This was the first major pronouncement on gun rights in U.S. history. Specifically, it overturned District of Columbia's 32-year-old ban on handguns as incompatible with gun rights under the Second Amendment. This is great news for all Americans, as this was the first time the court conclusively interpreted the Second Amendment since its ratification in 1791. Again, great news for all of us as the highest court in the land agrees with our Founding Fathers and agrees that self defense in a right we all have to protect our families. Some state laws still restrict our rights. I encourage the citizens in MA, NY, NJ, MI, RI, and WI to apply as much pressure as possible to your state representatives. Ask them if they are aware of the recent Supreme Court ruling. Tell them the state laws restricting guns and non-lethal self defense weapons are unconstitutional. Laws in these states make it a crime to process a stun gun or TASER device? You'd have an easier time staging a robber, than you would attempting to purchase a firearm. With the backing of the Supreme Court this is our call to action. Time to take back our right to bear arms. It is my fundamental right to be able to protect my home and to provide self defense for friends and family. You should have the ability to choose what self defense product or weapon to purchase. If you choose a handgun or rifle that should be your right and the government should not be able to stand in the way of that. I do own a handgun, a .40 caliber Beretta to be specific. I also have numerous non-lethal self defense weapons such as pepper spray, stun batons, and TASER devices. When it comes down to protecting my self or my family the first choice will always be non-lethal. Why? It's simple, the legal implications and possible consequences to shooting someone are far greater than going the non-lethal route. If I can use something like pepper spray or tear gas to stop an attacker and get to safety then for me that is the way to go. If on the other hand I shoot an attacker, I would have to attend numerous court precedings and prove my innocence to a jury. There are just to may unknowns with associated with the use of handguns or firearms. I support the right to bear arms, both lethal and non lethal versions 100%. My personal preference is to choose the non-lethal version. If we can help you please visit us on at http://www.guardian-self-defense.com/
