|Gun Law in the Supreme Courtís Sights - The Right to Keep and Bear Arms|
|Written by Norton Gappy|
Right now before the U.S. Supreme Court is the case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Docket No. 07-290. The Court is being asked to decide whether Washington D.C.’s ban on handgun ownership violates the Constitution’s Second Amendment right to “keep and bear arms.” The Court hasn't heard a pure Second Amendment case since 1939 when the Justices unanimously ruled that the Constitution did not bar Congress from requiring the registration of sawed-off shotguns (United States vs. Miller 307 U.S. 174 (U.S. SCt. 1939).
At the heart of the Heller case currently in front of the Court is the interpretation of the following twenty-seven words: “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.”
Take Legalnut's poll at the top right of the page and tell us whether you think the Second Amendment confers an individual right or a collective right to keep and bear arms.
