There are times when I am ashamed of the State of my birth
Maryland. JFC people, how stupid are you? Duh, the 2A covers EXACTLY these.
On Tuesday, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals voted 10-4 to uphold a Maryland law, which bans 45 kinds of guns and places a 10-round limit on gun magazines. The law – implemented after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that killed 20 students and six teachers in Newtown, Conn. – is intended to protect against gun violence.
For Judge Robert King and the majority in this ruling, certain kinds of rifles are “weapons of war,” meaning they are not covered under the Second Amendment for the purpose of self-defense. That distinction is explicitly drawn in the 2008 Supreme Court decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, Mr. King wrote.
Again, duh. Sandy Hook has been proven to be a false flag, held in a building which was not otherwise in use at the time, using “crisis actors”, who have been seen in other false flags since. Not to mention, you want to protect the chiiiiildren? Arm the teachers. They’re there, and can react in WAY less time than it takes cops to get there. Sandy Hook, if you will recall, the weapon the press blamed was actually locked in the guy’s trunk. There were so many stupid mistakes, if you had the brain to see them, it was an obvious anti-gun propaganda attack.
But back to the main point:
Others on the court sided with gun rights advocates, arguing that the right to bear arms does not depend on the weapon chosen, and noting the popularity of military style rifles.
“For a law-abiding citizen who, for whatever reason, chooses to protect his home with a semi-automatic rifle instead of a semi-automatic handgun, Maryland’s law clearly imposes a significant burden on the exercise of the right to arm oneself at home,” wrote Judge William Traxler in a dissent, calling for a stringent review of the decision.
The 2A was written right after our Revolution to ensure that the USA never had another government like the one we had just revolted against. It was to make said government wary of ever trying anything like it again. It was to make sure that the government knew that, if they tried, we could take the nation back from them.
You could say, I suppose, that it was for home protection. And hunting. And competitive sport. All for the sake of PROFICIENCY AT WAR!
Double facepalm, for when one is not enough.
The TENTH Amendment says this, and how are you at sequencing numbers? 2 is before 10, yes? Liberalism is a mental disorder:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people.
