Guns go to the Supreme Court for the first time in 69 years
I would love to write a post full of prose and spunk and get an Honor's Hall Pick like Glenn seems to do once a week but I won't.
But I did want to point out this interesting bit of news. The Supreme Court is hearing on a case involving a Washington D.C. gun control law. This is the first time in 69 years that they have done so.
And I have to say, it scares me. Not for the seemingly obvious reason. I love guns. I would like to see the D.C. laws overturned. But I am scared by what the Supreme Court and the presenting lawyers are saying. From the articles I have read (I really should get the transcripts if they are available) it seems like there are a bunch of young teenagers in there. It just blows my mind what some of these people are saying.
Here are two links for you to peruse if you like.
Tiggy: show me some of this more-than-sufficient evidence that would indicate the age of the Earth?
Jorge: What makes you believe that we are capable of obtaining such information? [snip] starting from a special, miraculous, one-time creation event such an expectation is unreasonable.
