tough noogies

Think Progress brings more good news from my home state. A California appeals court upheld our law banning possession of a semi-automatic assault rifle. According to them, the state law is constitutional.

As in, legal. As in, per the United States Constitution. As in, the Second Amendment has its limits. As in, tough noogies, NRA and extremist gun fondlers everywhere.

Think Progress:

[T]he Supreme Court’s seminal Second Amendment opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller held that the right to bear arms is “‘not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose,’ but is instead the right to possess and carry weapons typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes such as hunting or self-defense.” Ownership of “[d]angerous and unusual weapons” is not protected by the Constitution.

Ownership of “[d]angerous and unusual weapons” is not protected by the Constitution.

There's even more at the link.

So if the gun zealots really believe in the Constitution as they say they do, they might want to finally enthusiastically abide by the, you know, law.
