    Hey, try this experiment out,
    Google this, "Supreme Court: Individuals Have Right to Bear Arms"
    It will lead you to here, Supreme Court: Individuals Have Right to Bear Arms - Google Search

    Then, just for kicks and grins, click on a few of those provided links.
    Notice how many of them fail to actually load.
    It's almost as if somebody is trying purge the internet of that SCOTUS decision.
    Weird.

    this is really a landmark decision. The Second Amendment talks of a "well regulated militia", and the right to "bear arms". It doesn't say a thing about types of arms, just arms.

    Now, does the individual have the right to bear any arms? Just where does that right end?

    I think the court will revisit this issue.

    Well, news articles about the SCOTUS decision do.

    The above means that 4 U.S. Supreme Court Judges didn’t agree that the Second Amendment does secure an individual right to keep and bear arms.
    These 4 should be removed before they can vote on anything else. Anyone that believes that the Second Amendment doesn’t secure an individual right to keep and bear arms should not be allowed to be a judge or hold any political office in our country.

    Guns should be regulated, just like cars, drugs, food, and everything else that can kill you.

    cars, drugs, food, and everything else that can kill you don't have their own amendment in the constitution ending with "shall not be infringed".

    So even though it is anti-constitutional to do so, you have already gotten your wish.
