The Morning Rant

What a time to be a law-abiding gun owner and 2A enthusiast! Not only is the recent urban rioting producing large numbers of new gun owners and undoubtedly impressing upon many others the necessity of the means of self-defense, but also, last week, this court decision that just came down:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday threw out California’s ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, saying the law violates the U.S. Constitution’s protection of the right to bear firearms.

And what makes this decision even more kick-ass:

“Even well-intentioned laws must pass constitutional muster,” appellate Judge Kenneth Lee wrote for the panel’s majority. California’s ban on magazines holding more than 10 bullets “strikes at the core of the Second Amendment — the right to armed self-defense.”

You might be wondering how Judge Lee came to learn of the importance of 2A rights. Well, probably because Judge Lee has had some first-hand experience:

Lee was born in 1975, which makes him 17 years old at the time of the Rodney King riots in 1992. So the guy in the red shirt looks too old to be him. Doesn't really look much like Judge Lee, either. But I prefer to pretend that it is, anyway. If he wasn't actually up on the roof pulling guard duty, he probably saw it all happen, the looting, the violence, and businesses burned to the ground. Only not Korean businesses. Why? Because they were protected by men with guns. I have no doubt that would make quite an impression on a young man.

All the time and effort and money that gun-grabbing groups have put in to getting that high-cap magazine ban passed is now, poof, gone. Just like that. Just because some of their allies went berserk in 1992 and demonstrated to the entire country (yet again!) that there are times when you absolutely *have* to have a gun.

Kind of like what is happening this summer.

Monday's Who Dis: A couple of classics, Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier, who were in a classic movie, Hitchcock's Rebecca. A couple of you morons suggested that Olivier played for both teams, because him being a British actor and all, that kind of comes with the territory, but there's nothing about that in his wikipedia entry, so perhaps that is not correct.
