SCOTUS Fails You

The Supreme Court declined to hear what could have been a landmark gun rights case. A man was fined $150 for having a loaded gun in his truck in a national park.

The case would have dealt with whether or not it was constitutional to prohibit a citizen in good standing from ever carrying a gun for self-defense. It would have had sweeping impact across the nation, from gun-prohibited Chicago to California to Texas.

Yet the Supreme Court decided not to hear it. Too tough of an issue, I suppose. I guess now maybe some of you are realizing that you can't depend on the government to tell you whether or not the government can take away your rights.
