Following the SCOCTUS case concerning DC I have been studying the Constitution. It seems that the 2A applies only to the Federal Congress' ability to restrict gun ownership. It appears that states have the complete or at least substantial power to ban weapons, consistent with that states constitution. Do we have any Constitutional attorneys on this board whom can better educate me on this issue. The US Constitution appears to me to apply only to the federal government. States are free to pass laws as they see fit. Seems to me that the civil war was fought over that very point. Must states follow the US Constitution or may they be more restrictive, but not more liberal than the US Constitution.
