MN: A Constitutional law professor breaks down Second Amendment after gun owner’s group sues Minnesota State Fair
Submitted by:">Mark A. Taff

Professor David Schultz points to the 1981 Supreme Court case, District of Columbia v. Heller, for clarification on whether or not anyone's rights are being infringed upon.

"What the court said in that opinion is that the individual right to bear arms is historically grounded either in a right to have a gun in our house to protect ourselves or that right to have a gun for the purposes of hunting," said Schultz.

Schultz says the court in the Heller case never said we have an unlimited right to carry guns at any place or at any time. He also says certain restrictions can still be put in place when it comes to the right to bear arms.

Ed.: Wow.

This 'constitutional law professor' ain't worth his sheepskin.

First, D.C. v. Heller was a 2008 ruling, not 1981. That in itself should tell you what a charlatan this idiot is. Next comes the laughable assertion that Heller guaranteed only possession of firearms in the home for defense, or for hunting. In the first paragraph of the holding, the Court ruled that keeping and bearing arms for lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home, was protected. It in fact guaranteed a slate of lawful uses, presumably including hunting, and certainly not limited to the two purposes this ideologue claims.

This, dear friends, is what passes for 'scholarship' on the left.



Liberty is paramount. Government is an afterthought.

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.

Liberals are people who stand on their heads and insist that the world is upside-down.
