"The vice president believes strongly in Second Amendment rights," a Cheney spokeswoman said. This was regarding Vice President Cheney's signing a Supreme Court brief that goes further in support of gun rights than the one submitted by the Bush administration.
Lawyers with long experience at the court could not recall another case in which a vice president took a position different from that of his own administration. Well, how long can a real conservative continue to be quiet while enduring the Bush administration?
Cheney has joined more than 300 senators and representatives, led by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, who want the court to rule that Washington's ban is unconstitutional. Let's hope the court upholds the right of citizens to arm themselves.
