I'm so screwed

I wake up this morning, and here's what I see in the paper:

Justices Reject D.C. Ban On Handgun Ownership
5-4 Ruling Finds 1976 Law Incompatible With Second Amendment

The Supreme Court struck down the District of Columbia's ban on handgun possession yesterday and decided for the first time in the nation's history that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual's right to own a gun for self-defense.

And accompanying the article, is a picture of an attractice, young woman around my age, holding a placard and looking jubilant. Obviously she doesn't live in my neighborhood.

Guns are not a good thing for me and my street. Case in point:
-Gangs of New York
-Anti-gang efforts
