“In what looks to be a terrible ruling for Maryland gun owners a federal judge has essentially ruled that guns that were regulated by the state of Maryland last year, including AR-15 and AK style rifles (as well as other magazine fed, semi-auto rifles with certain features), “fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual arms,” according to a 47 page opinion by U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake.”
I am not even sure what to say to this one…
If this doesn’t go to the Supreme Court and get struck down, it could create a
illegal “legal” precedent that does not reflect favorably for gun owners. The U.S. Constitution is being shredded right in front of us. The 2nd Amendment clearly states that
“the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
At what point do we as a people choose the U.S. Constitution over our government’s decrees? At what point do we demand our government follow its own laws and uphold the Constitution rather than continually circumventing it?
Our 3rd President said it best:
“Whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers… a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.” – Thomas Jefferson
