In McDonald v. Chicago, Supreme Court offers handguns as affirmative  
action for the poor and oppressed

The U.S. Supreme Court has found that the best way for African  
Americans, women, and other oppressed groups in America to improve  
their lot is to buy a gun.

In any irony hard to overlook, in the same week that Republicans on  
the Senate Judiciary Committee would attack Elena Kagan for her  
association with civil rights activist and distinguished Supreme Court  
Justice Thurgood Marshall, the Supreme Court's conservative majority  
wrapped itself in the civil rights mantle to celebrate the Second  
Amendment as a vital resource for the nation's downtrodden and  
oppressed.
