WC: Supreme Court Decisions

The Supreme Court says that the constitution does indeed give the right to individuals to bear arms. This is good news--after all, we wouldn't have wanted the guy who shot 5 or 6 of his coworkers in Kentucky yesterday to have had to hack them to death.

The Supreme Court also says that raping a child should not lead to the death penalty because the child wasn't murdered. Now, I don't believe in the death penalty. I don't believe we should give the state the right to kill its citizens. However, if one were to believe in the death penalty, the Supreme Court's logic doesn't hold water. Raping a 6 year old is a form a murder--the person that child might have been is gone forever.
