Illegal Aliens and Guns
Reuters reports that the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that illegal aliens do not have a right to bear arms under the Second Amendment. I actually think that this is the wrong decision: "right of the people" includes everyone whose rights have not been taken away by some due process action. The real problem is that if someone is illegally present in the United States, they should be arrested and deported. If they come back, send them to prison for illegal entry and failing to get the message the first time.
