The drunks get their privileges taken away, but I have yet to see any authorities come to my house and tell me not to drive my car anymore because some dumbasses are driving while intoxicated. What have you been smoking up your baboon's butt?

There's a lot of room for regulation with that crowd of brainwashed A-holes.
A LOT of room. I hope they "infringe" on her right quick like!
And anyone else SO stupid.
Hal;f the people who go out and buy guns today shouldn't have them and that's a fact, Mr con stitution.
If it's a fact, then you shouldn't have any trouble explaining.

It's not for you or any other ass hole to decide, Miss Communist Manifesto.

Thing is, I think the Court wants to take smaller bites WRT the 2ndA and RKBA . . . If it was to take an assault weapon ban, especially one emanating from a state that does not have a right to arms provision in its state constitution, the decision would be ground-shaking. The upcoming NY carry case will be a bell-weather, informing us on the Court's sentiment on gun rights; if Thomas writes it it will be great for gun rights.

That said, this opinion was not all it could have been.

While the judge appears (claims) to rely on Heller, he doesn't get to the meat of the constitutional protection that Heller re-affirmed. This judge relied on the "common use" prong of the protection criteria when in truth, Scalia only elevated "in common use" to invalidate the DC statutes on (mostly non-military) handguns and to save the NFA-34 from immediate challenge. Heller didn't dwell on the other protection criteria, it didn't need to, but they remain for later employment and this case this should have been it.

For "assault weapons", the PRIMARY constitutional protection criteria is the "Miller rule" on military usefulness, not Miller's ancillary "in common use" standard.

In the grand scheme of things this decision is a good thing but it could have been better.

State's lost that "freedom" because they wrote discriminatory laws that they enforced even in the face of federal civil rights legislation -- which made the 14th Amendment an imperative.

Now, there is no "Bill of Rights Free-Zone" in the USA.

https://www.statista.com/statistics/...on-types-used/

Handguns are the most common weapon type used in mass shootings in the United States, with a total of 145 different handguns being used in 97 incidents between 1982 and May 2021. These figures are calculated from a total of 124 reported cases over this period, meaning handguns are involved in about 78 percent of mass shootings.
Handguns are popular among mass shooters for the same reason they are popular among non criminals. They are easily carried and easily maneuvered

Most mass shootings are carried out within 20 feet. At that range it doesn't matter if it's a .38 special or .300 magnum.

You could almost use a .22 at that distance. It might take a few well placed shots.
