2012 and The Supreme Court

Sebastian over on Shall Not Be Questioned (formerly Snowflakes in Hell), shared this quote from former U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens regarding the Heller and McDonald decisions, from an article appearing in Time magazine:
I would change the interpretation of the Second Amendment. The court got that quite wrong. Gun policy should be handled by legislatures and by states, not by federal judges appointed for life.
Sebastian writes that the Second Amendment will never really be safe until we stop hearing this type of thinking from left-leaning judges, and we get judges on the bench who are willing to uphold the Second Amendment.  I would add that, above all else, this should be what motivates every gun owner, even those who do not generally get involved in campaigns, to become active in next year's presidential campaign and work for the defeat of President Obama, making sure he does not have the opportunity to appoint one or more additional justices similar to Sonia Sotomayor or Elena Kagan.
