    Default US Appeals Court Stomps on the Constitution...Upholds MD AWB.

    Maryland's ban on 45 kinds of assault weapons and its 10-round limit on gun magazines were upheld Tuesday by a federal appeals court in a decision that met with a strongly worded dissent.
    In a 10-4 ruling, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, said the guns banned under Maryland's law aren't protected by the Second Amendment.

    "Put simply, we have no power to extend Second Amendment protections to weapons of war," Judge Robert King wrote for the court, adding that the Supreme Court's decision in District of Columbia v. Heller explicitly excluded such coverage.

    I'll tell you what, this will create a conflict that will have to be resolved at SCOTUS. A Hillary nominee would have doomed us. We're fortunate we're getting a strong originalist. Now, if Ginsburg would do us the courtesy of retiring, we can cement our 2A rights for the rest of our lives.

    Those Judges know what the second amendment was meant to be. This was a political ruling.

    we have a 5-4 decision with Gorsuch so dont jump to conclusions just yet...FYI it will never happen, no matter how hard the liberals try to derail us, the NRA always steps in and Trump owes them a favor for being a sponsor in his campaign.

    oh and BTW if Ginsburg steps down we will have a 6-4 Justice panel. Ginsburg wont finish before Trump is out of Office so i feel Trump will pick a Justice to replace that old mummy as well.
