Supreme Court to rule on D.C. gun ban

It's kinda strange, don't you think, that a gun ban has been in effect for quite some time (31 years), in our nation's capital, but our politicians all run around spewing "right to bear arms" speeches all over the country, especially during election time?

For example, John Kerry made a big deal over his hunting prowess during the 2004 campaign.

And Mitt Romney lied profusely about his love of hunting, just so he could get the guns portion of the "guns and butter" vote.

So it seems really odd to me that the politicians are all for guns except in their own neighborhoods. Is this just one more example of totally out-of-control hypocrisy? I think so.

One other thing: The Supreme Court seems even more ineffectual than our President and Congress:
The Supreme Court has not ruled on the scope of the Second Amendment since a 1939 decision when it upheld a federal gun control law but did not definitively resolve the constitutional issue.
When is the last time you've been able to NOT do your job for nearly 60 years without getting fired? These ladies and gentlemen are worthless.
