Justices may extend gun owner rights nationwide - Yahoo! News
As long as these regulation parallel those found for the other rights protected by the bill of rights, that’s fine. Slander, libel, fighting words, inciting a riot, yelling fire in a theater, etc, all fall outside the protection of the 1st amendment because they either directly cause harm or create a condition of an immediate clear and present danger to others.The court already has said that most of the guarantees in the Bill of Rights serve as a check on state and local laws. Still, "states have substantial latitude and ample authority to impose reasonable regulations," said Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was among the majority in the 2008 decision.
"Why can't we do the same thing with firearms?" he asked.
But, none of the ‘reasonable regulations’ sought by the anti-gun loons have any relationship at all to that concept.

Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
