The Supreme Court Has Spoken

In a 5 to 4 ruling, the USSC has upheld the rights of real people, individuals, or so it appears.

While gun owners every might express their appreciation to a majority of the court, one might wish to wait for thoughtful analysis of the ruling itself, what does it say in plain English as opposed to what it says in lawyers talk, possibly the last mentioned being more significant than the first part.

As for the four justices that voted against the individual rights of real people, one is given to look at another recent court ruling, that being one that effected the rights of what are “legal constructs”, corporations, as opposed to real people. In the court’s upholding the free speech rights of corporations, how did these four justices vote?

Please look at the sticky thread for all discussion about the ruling.
