McDonald v. Chicago

Justice Antonin Scalia Joined Justice Clarence Thomas in Opposing ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) refused last year to intercede and reverse a Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ruling that upheld the “assault weapons” ban in Chicago’s Highland Park. Associate Justice Clarence Thomas dissented–Antonin Scalia joining him–suggesting that wordsmiths were finding categories of guns to ban by listing types of firearms outside those explicitly in focus in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008).

Same Sex Ruling Sets Up National Reciprocity for Concealed Carry

When the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled that every state must recognize same sex marriages, they used a basis for judgement that will not easily stop at same sex marriage. In fact, it is a basis for judgement that should offer itself to national reciprocity of concealed carry permits and permit holders.
