Supreme Court – Gun Rights Must Be Honored By Cities And States

with 2 comments

June 28, 2010: Greg Stohr / Bloomberg – June 28, 2010

The U.S. Supreme Court extended the reach of the constitutional right to bear arms by saying it binds state and local governments as well as the federal government.

The Justices, voting 5-4 in a case involving Chicago’s handgun ban, said that individual gun rights were among the fundamental guarantees protected against state interference through a constitutional amendment after the Civil War.

The ruling broadens the sweep of the court’s 2008 ruling interpreting the Constitution’s Second Amendment as protecting the rights of individuals, rather than just those of state-run militias. It’s a victory for the National Rifle Association, which joined a group of Chicago residents in challenging the city’s laws. It will open a new front in the fight over gun rights, setting the stage for courtroom battles over the constitutionality of weapons restrictions around the country. The case is McDonald v. City of Chicago, 08-1521.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: Three weekends ago there were 52 shootings in Chicago. Just this past weekend there were 26 more shootings here where I now live. The gun ban is a complete scam and failure. An armed society is a safer society.

  1. Guns don’t kill people; People do.

    That being said, then why are street gangs tolerated. They are the ones doing 99% of the shootings in American cities. How easy would it be for the federal government to eliminate the street gangs just as it has gone after the mafia or the KKK in this country. Where are Jesse Jackson or Louis Farrakhan when you need them to speak out against street gangs and the violence they create? Why are the black leaders silent regarding street gangs?
