Good News from the High Court!

The Supreme Court delivered a unanimous smackdown to Massachusetts’ stun gun ban on Second Amendment grounds.  In particular, you know that tired, weak argument that the Second Amendment doesn’t apply to modern weapons that the founders could not have foreseen?   Yeah, well, not even Ruth Bager Ginsberg is buying that.

The Court has held that “the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding,” District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U. S. 570, 582 (2008), and that this “Second Amendment right is fully applicable to the States,”McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U. S. 742, 750 (2010).
