It 1-1 The Million Ways After almost two weeks of constatit cloudiness I saw the sun again today. It was like greeting an old friend that I hadn't seen in years. It lit up not only the sky and the Earth but my soul as well. I smiled towards the Heavens and thanked God for this beautiful sight. I knew too. that it was just one of the million ways that God says, "I love you" to us everydty. In fact, if I started writing on all the ways that God lets us know just how much He loves us then I would never stop. I would like to share just a few of them with you here, though. There are those unexpected hugs from our kids. that shining light in another's eyes when they love you, the laughter of a child, a puppy licking your hand, a kitten purring on your lap, a new baby's smile, and the first songs of the birds in the Spring. There are also the delightful smells of Spring flowers and Fall leaves, plus warm sweaters. warm hearts, and hot chocolate on cold. Winter days. Let's not forget either inspiring books, encouraging words, beautiful music, and the peace that prayer brings. We are also blessed with caring friends, good-hearted neighbors, and compassionate strang- ers who bring us comfort in times of need. Then we have all those ob- stacles that make us steer offthe wrong road and onto the right path as well as all those problems that make us stron- ger, better, and more loving people. God's wondrous love flows through all of these things and through our own hearts and souls as well. That is why I find the best way to start any day is to say, "I love you too dear God and I thank you for my life here." God loves us all so much. He says it in a million ways everyday of our lives. His love is all around us and within us as well. His [ove watches over us in this life and His love prom- ises us an even greater life to come. His love and the joy it brings are His gifts to Us. Let's make them our gifts to each other as well. By: Joseph J. Mazzella Mazzella is a GSC alumni and Nicho- las Co. Freelancer. I G.1.

Smith "We will not sit unconcerned while our liberty is invaded, nor look in silence upon public robbery." An editorial statement from the annals of The Glenvi/le Democrat-Pathfinde r files The CourtGets It Right on Guns by Sheldon Richman Advocates of freedom dodged a bullet last week when the U.S. Su- preme Court ruled 5-4 that the right to keep and bear arms, the subject of the Second Amendment, is an individual. not a collective, right. Opponents of gun ownership have long maintained that the Amend ment's reference to the militia indicates that the right does not apply to private persons. Thankfully, most of the justices saw this for the nonsense it is. Writing for the majority, Justice Antonin Scalia said the amendment's preface "A well regulated Militia. being neces- sary to the security of a free State" "'announces the purpose for which the right was codified: to prevent elimi- nation of the militia." It should not, Scalia went on. be seen as limiting the right specified in its main clause: "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Scalia's opinion goes to the heart of the matter. The Second Amendment recognizes an inherent right that pre- cedes government. It does not purport to create one. In his dissent, Justice John Paul Stevens said that, since the explicit purpose of the Second Amendment does not include hunting and self- defense, those uses of firearms couldn't have been intended by the Framers. Those Framers clearly understood the principle of rights better than Stevens does. If one has a right, one may exercise it for any purpose con- sfstent with the rights of others. Keep- ing and bearing arms for self-defense or hunting violates no one else' s right, so it is entirely consistent with the Amendment. Stevens's conclusion implies that government creates rights and thus can create a right that could be exercised for one purpose (the militia), but not for others (self-de- fense). That would amount to awhole- sale rejection of the Jeffersonian phi- losophy found in the Declaration of Independence and a repudiation of. the American Revolution. The misunderstanding of the na- ture of rights runs deep. After the decision, the Chicago Tribune called for repeal of the Second Amendment. If rights are inherent in human nature, repeal would make no difference. A right would not disappear merely be- cause a government document ceased to say it shall not be infringed. Do the Tribune editors seriously believe that bad the Bill of Rights never been added to the Constitution, the people would have no right to keep and bear arms? That is ridiculous. Scalia's opinion is fine as far as it goes. The case resulted from a chal- lenge to a District of Columbia law that bans handguns from private homes. The law also requires that shotguns and rifles be kept disas- sembled and trigger-locked. In Scalia's words. "The enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table. These include the absolute prohibi- tion of handguns held and used for self-aefense in the home. Undoubt- edly, some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society whcre our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal secu- rity, and where gun violence is a seri- ous problem. That is perhaps debat- able, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct." Unfortunately, the majority opin- ion allows for gun regulations that fall short of outright bans. Existing regu- lations will now be tested in court. In the end, the ruling may have little effect on most gun laws, but the dec- laration that guns rights are individual rights is important. Think what we would have witnessed had the case gone the other way. In a second dissenting opinion. Jus- tice Stephen Breyer said, "Far more important are the unfortunate conse- quences that today' s decision is likely to spawn. Not least of these, as I have said,'is the fact that the decision threat- ens to throw into doubt the constitu- tionality of gun laws throughout the United States. I can find no sound legal basis for launching the courts on so formidable and potentially danger ous a, missmn Well excuse me Justice Breyer if protection of our freedoms imposes a formidable and potentially dangerous mission on the Court Talk about the tail wagging the dog! It would be far more dangerous to the people if firearms were banned Criminals would get them anyway, but the law abiding among us would be left vul nerable Common sense is the favorite daughter of reason. --Henry Wheeler Shaw "The Latest in Technology & Equipment To Serve You Better 1-Down Draft Paint I Bake Booth l - Cross Draft Paint Booth "-'5 PPG Products Color Technology
