Quote: What did he write about traditional restrictions, keeping in mind the traditional bans on guns in towns? He made exceptions for that, which didn't clarify anything.
Have you read the ruling yet? All restrictions ("traditional"? or otherwise) must now be viewed in light of the explicit constitutional right of the individual to keep and bear arms. If they meet that bar, fine. If not, they gotta go.
I believe the bulk existing laws restricting firearms in sensetive places, restricting the types of firerarms that can be sold on the civilian market, requiring registration, licensing and background checks, will withstand the test. Broad restrictions like the Illinois law won't. I also have doubts about waiting periods meeting the standard.
Quote: I still see this as you disagree with her threshold. And really, I wanted to poke you about being so cautious and circumspect about police actions and so unrestrained here. I don't recall you ever getting to "officer pepper spray screwed up", but this ruling was silly, not just wrong, from the get go.
It's not about the wrong conclusion based on the right threshold; it's about using the wrong threshold, which inevitably leads to the wrong conclusion. I'm not grasping your point about "officer pepper spray", what's the connection?
