Bush's Supreme Court Appointees Seem To Get The Second Amendment

From Reuters:


"What is reasonable about a total ban on possession?" Chief Justice John Roberts asked Washington, D.C.'s lawyer, Walter Dellinger, in referring to a controversial provision barring the private possession of handguns.

Justice Samuel Alito, who like Roberts was appointed by President George W. Bush, cited another provision requiring rifles or shotguns be kept unloaded and dissembled or bound by a trigger lock, and said it did not seem as if they could be used as such for the self-defense of one's home.

I have been very outspoken in my opposition to some of President Bush's policies. It seems like he made a good decision on the judges he has appointed though. Of course there was that whole Harriet Miers fiasco, but I can cut him a little slack on that. Especially with news like you see above.
