Handgun Ownership Is A Privacy Right

Via Glenn Reynolds we find Mike O’Shea commenting on the possibility of the Supreme Court overturning the District of Columbia’s handgun ban, if it grants certiorari in the case of Parker v. D.C. He points to what happens when leftist judicial activists worship some parts of the Constitution and competely ignore others:

"So the Constitution says Roe, but it doesn’t say I have the right to keep a gun to defend my home, huh?"
…arms actually are mentioned by name in the Constitution, and given special status and protection by the Second Amendment. Combine this with the ‘penumbras and emanations’ of the Third and Fourth amendments – which confer special status upon the home and belongings of the individual – and a strong case can be made that gun ownership for protection of self, family and possessions is also an inalienable right guaranteed by the Constitution, and a much stronger right than privacy.
