Supreme Court may decide who can carry guns

Richard Wolf, USA TODAY11:20 a.m. EDT April 14, 2013

As Congress and state legislatures debate gun control, the high court is likely to hear a case in the near future challenging state restrictions on carrying guns outside the home.


Story Highlights:



  • Justices asked to take New York case on guns outside home
  • Ten states have similar laws; Illinois, D.C. have full prohibitions
  • Will court get involved in the wake of Newtown shootings?

If Heller #1 made the control freaks think that bans and registries are kosher...

just imagine what this will make them think.

Justices uphold state gun control law - CNN.com

Justices uphold state gun control law By Bill Mears, CNN Supreme Court Producer

Washington (CNN) -- The Supreme Court on Monday let stand New York's strict gun control law, rejecting an appeal from a group of gun owners.
At issue was whether the Constitution's Second Amendment provided a broad individual right to carry a handgun outside the home for self-defense.

SCOTUS didn't uphold anything. They just declined cert. Big difference.

All the more reason to boot the politicians out of office.

I think as far as handgun laws go, this is what we can expect. They have just tacitly accepted the idea that there is no
constitutional right to keep and bear a handgun. They dodged the politics by declining to hear the case. This is much more low key and less attention getting than have the appeal herd and a big deal made when the decision is announced.
I think Scalia signaled his (and the court's) views in Heller and McDonald, and they are not what many here think they are. They are not going to be a ground breaking body on this issue.
