Activist Judges

I posted about this when I first heard the case and I was right about the outcome. The activist judges at the Supreme Court violated the constitution by ruling against the Washington D.C. gun ban. I'm not shocked considering how Bush has turned the court into a wing of the Republican Party. For those who need a reminder here is what the constitution says regarding the amendment:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

And again here is a definition of militia:

1.a body of citizens enrolled for military service, and called out periodically for drill but serving full time only in emergencies.
2.a body of citizen soldiers as distinguished from professional soldiers.
3.all able-bodied males considered by law eligible for military service.
4.a body of citizens organized in a paramilitary group and typically regarding themselves as defenders of individual rights against the presumed interference of the federal government.

So yet again putting their personal views above the constitution and the court got it wrong.
