A Dialogue for the September 12th World

Well, Do Ya…Punk?

Line ’em up!

Now that yesterday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision has lovingly pistol-whipped the city of Washington, DC….other gunowners are LINING UP to go after their respective cities. Uh…I have one word to say about that: Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

Emboldened by Thursday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling affirming the right of individuals to own handguns, advocates said they would immediately challenge a San Francisco law that prohibits guns in public housing and sue other cities nationwide to overturn gun restrictions.

The California lawsuit, which the National Rifle Assn. said it would file in federal court in San Francisco today, was one of several legal challenges that gun rights groups said they would pursue in the wake of the court decision.

Hours after the Supreme Court ruling came down, two groups sued Chicago over its handgun ban, which is similar to the District of Columbia law the high court struck down. In addition, the NRA said it would file a lawsuit against Chicago today and would also sue surrounding cities that ban handguns.

In the rainbow city of San Francisco, where the only people with guns are bad guys, this is especially sweet. Just ask Inspector Harry Callahan.

I know what you’re thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? ….

Well, do ya…punk?

    Justice Scalia said the decision wouldn’t stop longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms, hopefully to keep guns out of the hands of these kids who are shooting up college campuses lately. Oh, and no guns for former Enron CFO Andrew Fastow, Televangelist Jim Bakker and Martha Stewart, too – we can all rest easy now.
