The Rocky Mountain News published Ari Armstrong’s piece on the recent Supreme Court ruling that recognizes our right to defend ourselves with a firearm. Here are the opening paragraphs:
Self-defense is a fundamental human right. Now the Supreme Court has affirmed what most Coloradans have long held and what our state’s constitution also strongly protects: the individual’s right to own a gun.
The June 26 ruling on District of Columbia v. Heller overturns Washington, D.C.’s handgun ban and requirement that guns be kept inoperable in the home. Gone is the fantasy that the Second Amendment protects only state militias.
