There is another similarity. In Heller one of the core arguments was that the DC government had so regulated firearms as to effectively ban them or nullify their use. Very similar to the above-quoted text about regulating a property as to destroy its value.
For example,some years agoa fella boughtsome beachfront property, planning to develop it.He spent a goodly sum to aquire it. Shortly after some government entity made a regulation orsomething that designated the property as some sort of protected area.Instantly, hecould not develop theproperty, nor could he sell it for anywhere near what he paid for it. Theregulation destroyed the value of the property.I heard about this in one of Judge Napolitano's books, either Constitutional Chaosor Lies the GovernmentToldYou. I'm thinking it was the former.
Both are excellent books, by the way. If you can't afford a new copy, they're probably availableused from Amazon.
Regulation is regulation, except when it is being used arbitrarily or for political ends. In which case it no longer fits the definition of "putting into good working order" and isn't really regulation.
