D.C. v. HELLER
Here 's What USSC Says of M-16s; I Hope USSC Likes MP5s
I LOVE MP 5s; so sweet ALL CITIZENS
CAPABLE of military service, who WOULD BRING the sorts of
lawful WEAPONS that THEY POSSESSED AT HOME to militia
It may well be true today that a militia, to be as
EFFECTIVE as militias in the 18th century, would REQUIRE
SOPHISTICATED ARMS that are HIGHLY UNUSUAL in society at
large. [emphasis added by David]
"As the quotations earlier in this opinion demonstrate,
THE INHERENT RIGHT OF SELF-DEFENSE has been CENTRAL
to the Second Amendment right. The handgun ban amounts to a
prohibition of an entire class of "arms" that is overwhelmingly
chosen by American society for that lawful purpose.
The prohibition extends, moreover, to the home, where the
need for DEFENSE of self, family, and PROPERTY is most acute."
[emphasis added by David]
As Carly Simon put it:
" These are the GOOD OLD DAYS !!!!! "
