I love how these retards don't understand how the constitution works. The Second Amendment clearly states that "[...]the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed", so the SCOTUS was probably right in overturning a state's (New York, in this case) law that did infringe said right. However, the constitution says nothing about abortion, and Roe v. Wade was repeatedly criticized for stretching the right to privacy guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to cover abortions and effectively being "legislation from the bench" meaning that the Court overstepped its boundaries with that decision.

The difference between guns and abortion is that the constitution explicitly guarantees a right to bear guns (yes, it refers to "arms" but that term covers firearms and is usually interpreted as doing so) while it does not make a single mention of abortion. Therefore, it can be argued that the constitution does not confer a right to abortion, and the Supreme Court was right to hand the decision back to the states, in the absence of federal legislation.

That being said, this year truly is the year of the chud.
