Law Prof Questions Whether Right to Keep and Bear Arms Extends Outside of Home

Reacting to recent U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ decisions against California concealed carry requirements, University of California law professor Adam Winkler claims the constitutionality of Second Amendment protections beyond the home is still in question.

Winkler teaches at the School of Law of the University of California, Los Angeles.

According to The Los Angeles Times, Winkler said one of “the biggest unanswered questions with the Second Amendment today [is] whether the right extends outside the home.” 

In other words, there is a chance the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed [unless you’re outside your home].”

Does this mean there’s also a chance that “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech [except when that speech takes place outside the home]” as well?
