An Australian man was shot and killed after he protested about a neighbor's loud music. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there a Nationwide Gun Ban in Australia almost ten years ago? Nobody yet has come up with a convincing argument about how a person already predisposed to breaking the law is going to stop short of violating a nationwide gun ban.
The United States Supreme Court announced they will hear the challenge to the District of Columbia handgun ban this coming year, probably in the spring. If I understand correctly, the Supreme Court will rule on whether the rights conveyed under the Second Amendment are collective rights or individual rights. I hope our rights as citizens continue to be protected.
