My Precious, Precious Gun

Rest easy, folks -- the Supreme Court has struck down DC's restriction on firearms ownership, meaning nobody can tell you that you don't have the right to bear arms.

I'm sure the conservatives will decry the judicial activism of this court, striking down a law that had the support of the people, as sure as my name is Antonin Scalia.

At any rate, this is a good excuse to quote "The Simpsons":
Gun Shop Owner: Well, you'll probably want the accessory kit. Holster…
Homer: Oh, yeah.
Gun Shop Owner: Bandoleer.
Homer: Baby.
Gun Shop Owner: Silencer.
Homer: Mmm-hmm.
Gun Shop Owner: Loudener.
Homer: (drooling noise)
Gun Shop Owner: Speed-cocker.
Homer: Ooh, I like the sound of that.
Gun Shop Owner: And this is for shooting down police helicopters.
Homer: Oh, I don't need anything like that… (paranoid)…yet. Just give me my gun. (grabs for gun)
And remember, a gun is just a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator. You just need one.
