In the last day of their current session, the Supreme Court is expected to give their decision on District of Columbia vs. Heller today… their first ruling on the 2nd Amendment in over half a century.
Directly from the Court’s decision:
Under any of the standards of scrutiny the Court has applied to enumerated constitutional rights, this prohibition—in the place where the importance of the lawful defense of self, family, and property is most acute—would fail constitutional muster. Similarly, the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional.
COMMON SENSE WON!
