Today the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment applies equally to states as well as federal laws. McDonald v. Chicago, ___ U.S. ___ (2010). In a predictable 5-4 split decision, the court held that restrictions on the individual right to bear arms cannot trammel the second amendment — essentially a death knell to complete arms bans around the nation, though the court did not strike down Chicago’s anti-weapons laws.
The decision is a fitting comeuppance for a nanny state that even banned foie gras for a while.
