Heller Dissent

Justice Stephen Breyer wrote a separate dissent in which he said, "In my view, there simply is no untouchable constitutional right guaranteed by the Second Amendment to keep loaded handguns in the house in crime-ridden urban areas." [emphasis added]

So, according to Justice Breyer, citizens who live in crime-ridden urban areas have no right to defend themselves from criminals.

Excuse me. But law-abiding citizens, who are living in crime-ridden urban areas should be permitted the means to defend their castle. If they had the means, I mean firearms to defend themselves and their families, there would be less crime and fewer criminals.

Justice Breyer, you need to review the history of Kennesaw, GA.
In the 1980's, Kennesaw enacted a law which requires homeowners to have a firearm in their homes.
Crime in Kennesaw plummeted.
And Kennesaw became and remains a very safe community in which to raise a family.
Since that law went into effect, Kennesaw has suffered zero (0) [nada] gun deaths;
no person has been killed by gunshot, self inflected or not.
no accidental death by gunshot.

Justice Breyer, you are an idiot. And Justices Stevens, Gingsberg, and Souter are even dumber.
Thinking that laws which disarm and render law-abiding citizens defenseless will make people safer is idiotic.

Thank God that Justices Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, Alito, and Kennedy are on the court.
