Looks like Chicago has lost the Supreme Court Case against their handgun ban It also means the 2nd Amendment is now officially incorporated in the states.
This will have HUGE ramifications, just as the Heller Case (which spawned this case, as well as several others) with gun rights. One Immediate thing might be Massachusetts’ “Safe Storage” laws, which was ruled constitutional recently, but the case directly referenced state incorporation as a stipulation on that ruling. I’ll have to talk to some local lawyers to see if that means what I think it does, and by this ruling that case is now nullified.
This will also push Alan Gura forward with cases against safe handgun rosters, as well as things like Assault Weapons bans. We’re still a LONG way off from getting things straitened out here but this, like Heller is a foundation of lawmakers no longer ignoring the 2nd Amendment.
A good list can be found here
The Decision can be read in a PDF here
Also for those of you who don’t have any sympathy for the bigots who like to take away the rights of others there is a whole WORLD of Butthurt in the comments here I won’t lie, I’m happy when Marxists are sad.
I’ll defiantly have to read the decision when I get a chance, and I’ll also continue to read posts of those who are smarter than I am on it.
This is a good day.
