Funny how conservatives are directly fighting against the conservative-led, Scalia-penned decision less than 5 years ago....
Justice Scalia’s decision in the landmark 2008 case District of Columbia v. Heller:
'nothing in our opinion should 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.'
The ruling also allows limitations on ownership of 'dangerous and unusual' weapons that are not in 'common use' — like, for example, assault weapons.
The NRA, meanwhile, is acting like the gun 'nuts' that so many gun owners are not. The extremity of their position on some of these matters is ludicrous.
Meanwhile, newly-elected, Senator Cruz (R-Texas) tries to claim any assault weapon ban is 'unconstitutional'.
Take it up with Scalia, Ted....
