WASHINGTON - Jun 26, 2008 - From the Supreme Court ruling DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA v. HELLER:
Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons.
There you go folks. The government decides what the conditions and qualifications to buy a gun are and what is a "dangerous" weapon. You have no right but a privilege.
The District must permit Heller to register his handgun and must issue him a license to carry it in the home.
Gee, isn’t that nice of the Supreme Court. Does Heller have to kiss Uncle Sam's butt while he's at it?
