Supreme Court ruling on DC vs Heller…

“Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited … nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.”

In fact, Alan Gura himself argued that a whole host of gun control laws would be consistent with the Second Amendment. D.C. could “require safe storage” of guns, “for example, in a safe.” D.C. could require a license to possess a firearm and condition that license on what he called “demonstrated competency” with the weapon. It could also require “background checks” or prohibit minors from possessing guns. Indeed, Gura counseled, D.C. should have “a great deal of leeway in regulating firearms.”
