The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit tossed a completely appropriate, and so far unprotected, hand grenade into the ongoing gun non-debate in Amerikkka.
No, you don’t have a right to weapons of war under the Supreme Court’s Heller decision, which specifically embraced handguns to be owned in the case of the protection of one’s own home. This doesn’t seem to be all that controversial a ruling based on the Supreme Court’s own lack of fervor to get involved in the assault weapons bans instituted in certain states since Sandy Hook.
Writing for a nine-judge majority, U.S. Circuit Judge Robert King said that weapons such as M-16s and functionally equivalent guns that “are most useful in military service” aren’t protected by the Second Amendment as interpreted by the Supreme Court in the landmark District of Columbia v. Heller decision. That ruling limited the Second Amendment’s “core protection” to the ownership of handguns for purposes of self-defense within the home.
Sane states do not have to go along with the insane states on these issues. It’s amazing how state’s rights does not seem to extend to areas like guns that the phony “originalists” will say have absolute protection. Can’t get an abortion in Mississippi – move! Can’t get all the fire power your twisted heart desires? Satan has captured your state and must be expelled in an exorcism of bullets!!!
There were no pictures of the Justices available to prove whether the 5 in the majority were wearing pussy caps.
