Another Win for Constitutional Rights

A Federal judge in Texas has ruled that the ban on same-sex marriage in that state to by unconstitutional. From the article:
“Regulation of marriage has traditionally been the province of the states and remains so today,” Garcia wrote in the 48-page ruling. “However, any state law involving marriage or any other protected interest must comply with the United States Constitution.”
AS with marriage, so to with firearms.  We live in good times to see the rights of the individual being broadened instead of limited. 

The ban is still in effect as the losing side is expected to appeal this ruling, so the judge granted a stay of his order overturning the law.  But this decision must increase the liklihood of the Supreme Court to weigh in on this issue.
