Shockingly over the weekend a Judge ruled that “the right to keep and bear arms” ACTUALLY included bearing arms.
In Palmer v District of Columbia, Federal Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. ruled that the Second Amendment existed OUTSIDE a person’s home. With a decision so obvious I do wonder why it took 5 years to issue this decision.
Perhaps the five year wait had to do with Judge Scullin delving DEEPLY into both Heller v DC and MacDonald v Chicago to issue this resounding and total conclusion:
“there is no longer any basis on which this court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny.”
That wording is important. According to the correct ruling of Judge Scullin, the right to bear arms is just as paramount as the right to keep them. And there is NO BASIS in which that right should be denied. Furthermore, when Judge Scullin says that the courts cannot uphold a ban under ANY level of scrutiny, he is referring to the three judicial levels of scrutiny that judges use when dealing with whether a law is able to be enforced.
