SCOTUS Action Doesn’t Prove Second Amendment Is Safe

posted on March 28, 2016

When the U.S. Supreme Court recently challenged the ruling in Caetano v. Massachusetts that stun guns are not covered by the Second Amendment, it was widely seen as a pro-gun victory. But an enlightening article posted on the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) website explains that this outcome does not indicate much about the Court’s stance on gun rights. 

A number of pundits have already pointed toward Caetano as evidence that even without Justice Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court remains dedicated to its recognition in District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. This confidence is not only misplaced; it also plays into the hands of those who support the appointment of Merrick Garland. NRA-ILA warns against a false sense of security: “Unless Justice Scalia is replaced by someone who shares his philosophy and worldview when it comes to our right to keep and bear arms, we may not have that right much longer.”
