Supreme Court Upholds Your 2nd Amendment Rights

Update: A good resource on what the ruling means.

In a 5-4 decision the Supreme Court ruled that the second amendment “applies equally to the federal government and the states” and that “the right to keep and bear arms must be regarded as a substantive guarantee, not a prohibition that could be ignored so long as the States legislated in an evenhanded manner.” Different news outlets including the Washington Post and theĀ  Los Angeles Times have written conflicting pieces about how this directly effects the subject of the case, an outright ban on handguns by the city of Chicago, but all news outlets are reporting that the substance of the decision will mean major challenges to current laws nationwide and a major shift in how our nation treats gun rights!

Well done Supreme Court!
