Federal judge in MD rules AR's and AK's not protected by the 2nd Ammendment.

This one is headed to the Supreme Court, if you ask me.

BREAKING: Federal Judge Rules AR-15?s Are ?Dangerous and Unusual,? Not Protected by 2nd Amendment

Here's a quote from the ruling:
Upon review of all the parties’ evidence, the court seriously doubts that the banned assault long guns are commonly possessed for lawful purposes, particularly self-defense in the home, which is at the core of the Second Amendment right, and is inclined to find the weapons fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual.

First, the court is not persuaded that assault weapons are commonly possessed based on the absolute number of those weapons owned by the public. Even accepting that there are 8.2 million assault weapons in the civilian gun stock, as the plaintiffs claim, assault weapons represent no more than 3% of the current civilian gun stock, and ownership of those weapons is highly concentrated in less than 1% of the U.S. population.

The court is also not persuaded by the plaintiffs’ claims that assault weapons are used infrequently in mass shootings and murders of law enforcement officers. The available statistics indicate that assault weapons are used disproportionately to their ownership in the general public and, furthermore, cause more injuries and more fatalities when they are used.

SCOTUS, here we come.

That judge/court is full of crap and obviously has an agenda. Read the 2nd Amendment. Word by word. There is NOTHING about the type/style/function of a arms of which we have the right to keep and bear.

WOW! So if I total up just the guns my husband owns, 11.1% of them are 'black scary rifes' that are owned legally. Our household must be VERY unusual!!

FWIW - he owns 1 'black scary rifle' .... & has never killed anyone with it.

I've never killed anything with my AR.

Judge is working off erroneous information.

I have as much faith in the SCOTUS as I do the POTUS. In other words...NONE. Might as well throw Congress in there too.

Cracks me up that he said it's not an unconstitutonal ruling. Frack him. Also, SCOTUS has not been very forthcoming imho...

Basically all legis groups are saying FU to us and doing what they want. It hasn't been about the people in a long time. It's tyranny at best and will get worse.

I honestly believe they know all the truth but will not go by it. They want what they want and that means eventually all guns gone.

First amendment covers newspaper, radio, TV, the motion picture industry and the internet...The second amendment covers muskets and six shooters..
