The Supreme Court, by a 5-4 majority, has once again vindicated the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms as constitutionally guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

Trying to turn a lemon into lemonade, the mainstream media has used President Obama’s handling of the McChrystal episode to rehabilitate Obama’s tarnished image.
