Thread: 2nd amendment for dummies
I am trying to understand the Heller decision.
The court interpreted the 2a regarding the milita correctly.
The interpreted the "right to keep and bear" correctly.
They bailed out on the "shall not be infringed" part.
Was this a compromise to get a 5-4 decesion.
This has opened the door for the Calif legislature to endlessly decide how to infringe and there will be endless cases deciding on how much they can infringe.
I have this picture in my mind of Alan Gura before the court, a wrinkled old man, wearing Depends.
A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.
