The handgun ban and the trigger-lock requirement (as applied to self-defense) violate the Second Amendment. The total ban on handgun possession in the home amounts to a prohibition on an entire class of arms that Americans overwhelmingly choose for the lawful purpose of self-defense. This prohibition would fail constitutional muster under any standard of scrutiny. Similarly, the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is therefore unconstitutional.
Since NY, MD and other states and the Feds have defined “assault rifles” in all these bills. and every bill seeks to ban this “class” of guns, which an overwhelming majority of Americans own for self defense, doesn’t that equal them trying to ban an entire class of arms for said reason and therefore has already been proven to be unconstitutional by DC vs Heller?
The decision saying that trigger locks and having them disassembled etc. in the home should also nullify a few other things in these kooky bills with regard to securing the guns shouldn’t it?
