Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Gun Rights
In the Majority opinion, Justice Alito wrote;
“It is clear that the Framers and ratifiers of the Fourteenth Amendment counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty.”
In 2008, the court voided a District of Columbia handgun ban, but Washington DC is federal territory and not part of a state, the legal basis for imposing federal constitutional limits on gun laws adopted by states had been unclear.
Monday’s ruling extended the fundamental right to bear arms to the rest of the country.
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.
