Mayor Nutter on Heller
"As much as we are concerned about an individual's right to own their own weapon, we are more concerned with cracking down on activity that is actually illegal. "
In other words, we'll violate your rights if we want to.
"In limiting its opinion to the matter of self-defense, and in saying the right is not absolute, the United States Supreme Court decision today is an explicit statement of support for cities all across America who are creating reasonable measures to limit the ability of those who will do harm, who will maim, who will buy, carry weapons illegally.
WOW, talk about damage control and spinning the decision as a positive. Philly is bound to get sued at some point, and I think Nutter knows it.
