Here is where the court 'leaves the door open' for state and local regulations:
This is no different than the court's statement in Heller, and in no way supports the idea that registration, licensing, gun-a-month limits, etc, will pass constitutional muster.It is important to keep in mind that Heller, while striking down a law that prohibited the possession of handguns in the home, recognized that the right to keep and bear arms is not “a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” We made it clear in Heller that our holding did not cast doubt on such longstanding regulator ymeasures as “prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill,” “laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.” We repeat those assurances here. Despite municipal respondents’ doomsday proclamations, incorporation does not imperil every law regulating firearms.
Silence from the anti-gun side. Hmm.
Yes, unless you are a convicted felon you have the right to own guns. I believe Chicago and DC are the only areas that have mandated restrictions to the 2nd amendment. Those restrictions need to be abolished.
I THINK THE RED GOWN LOOKS THE BEST! IT NEVER HURTS TO RUB IT IN A LITTLE.The jokes write themselves!
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
Good, now its time to challenge all the state bull**** gun laws.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
