Today, Fred Thompson takes yet another stand in favor of the Second Amendment, or at least its general existence. He mentions this article from the New York Slimes.
The DC law in question is one of the biggest violations of the Second Amendment in the US. Provisions struck down by the court include a near outright ban on handguns, carrying a gun AROUND ONE'S OWN HOME without a license, and a requirement that guns (even those registered under illegal registration laws), be kept "unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock".
Just to demonstrate the incredible hypocrisy of those fighting to reinstate this law, one of the lawyers for the gun-grabbers, Robert A. Levy, had this to say:
The obligation of District of Columbia officials is to demonstrate that D.C. laws are constitutional and not to engage in strategic behavior driven by concerns elsewhere in the country.Well sir. I've got something for you to think about. Exactly how can the aforementioned law be in compliance with the law which says, "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."?????
And leave out all your bullshit arguments about "public safety". None of them are relevant.
