Now that CNN did milk the death of MJ again and we were told again all the news about his father, mother, brothers, doctor and even the monkey, we can get back to the real issues facing our nation.

Thousands of people are killed every year in the USA by accidental shooting, sudden uncontrolled anger or drunks. Did these people forfeit on their "rights" to bear arms, all those victims were still alive.
The Supreme Court did a great disservice to our nation, that article Nr. 2 was written over 200 years ago when you were in constant danger from native indians and maroding bandits. Certainly we are not facing any such danger today.

As far as the war in Afghanistan goes, I bet anybody that it will end like Vietnam did, we will pack up hastily, leave billions of dollars worth of equipment behind and run with our tails between our legs.
The Taliban will never give up, it is their country and will not let us tell them how to live. The Vietcong did the same.
Generals will never admit their mistakes and lie to cover their tails.
Gen. Westmoreland did it and so did McChrystal.
The whole world is telling us that the war is already lost, but we do not listen.
A war is just too importants to leave it to the generals. Are our politicians stupid and so inapt that they are ready to let billions of dollars more wasted and thousands of people killed, both ours and theirs, instead of admitting a failure and get out before they throw us out.
Karsai and his family earn hundreds of millions every year on drugs and the money we waste on that war. They want us to stay to make a few hundred millions more!

With the present callous laws in Chicago and New York city's, only the criminals have the guns and the criminals have no problem whatsoever in obtaining those guns. In New York city, citizens with absolutely no criminal record if caught with a hand-gun, a can of mace or a stun gun will and do receive a longer sentence in jail or prison than the routine mugger armed with a hand-gun!

The Republican darling Rudy Guillani THREATENED the State of Florida when Florida considered a concealed weapons permit for it's citizens, with a lawsuit! Rudy predicted wild west shoot outs in Florida's streets and a spike in citizen deaths. Rudy is so wrong in so many ways, and keeping with Rudy's dismal track record, Florida passed their concealed weapons permit system despite the toothless empty threat by Rudy Guillani, and muggings dropped, carjackings dropped and there were no wild west shoot outs in Florida as the direct result.

@ Ted good comment and observation in regards to the Karzai Clan's Family values in Afghanistan. According to Hamid Karzai's own brother, Hamid Karzai was the Taliban's banker during the 1980's moving Billions of dollars from the CIA and the Karzai Clan's Opium-Heroin production to purchasing weapons, explosives and funding for the Taliban.

Several months ago I posted in AC360 Anderson Coopers blog about the Karzai Clan receiving helicopter loads of American Taxpayer hundred dollar bills in the amounts of hundreds of Millions of dollars. Totaling easily Billions of American taxpayer dollars in bribes to the Karzai Clan. Those previous comments were entirely deleted by the Anderson Cooper staff, and now other News Media outlets are this week reporting on the same observation. Tracking enormous American Taxpayer pay-off's to the Karzai Clan via a Dubai drop zone where those funds are being funneled into banks in Dubai.

It seem's news worthy for the American People to learn about where one or more Billion of their Taxpayer dollars are going (to a large scale Opium-Heroin exporter) and answer the question as to WHY.

To illustrate my point about bearing arms an example:

Just because Buracas Obama is all for Abortion and fiercefully up-holding such laws (Unlike others, such as Immigration Laws) it doesn’t mean that every “Woman” is gonna exercise her Constitutional Human Right to terrify children still in the womb and take away their lives with a surgical scalps or something.

Having a right to bear arms for sport or for self defense, is not a trigger point in time preceding Americana self annihilation.

I believe that Dana Loesch is really insane.

Every law-biding citizen has the right to self-preservation, and because criminals use firearms to commit acts of violence, no one should be denied the right to posess firearms, be it rifles or handguns to protect themselves against would be murderers. Our founding fathers understood that, and I applaud the court's decision.
