    "Weapons of war," if one is even to accept such a hyperbolic phrase, are EXACTLY what the 2A was intended to protect.

    'Weapons of War' - they will figure out what that really means sooner or later.

    All democrats on the 4th circuit most were appointed by Obama. I'm just glad that Trump is here to restore some sanity to the courts.

    Hopefully, Judge Traxler's dissent is significant if/when this goes to SCOTUS with Gorsuch on board. Although who knows what he would say, but it's still better than a HRC appointment on SCOTUS!

    Funny a rock was considered a weapon of war and years ago it was used as one!
    Ban rocks![rofl]

    This will stop murderers how!

    When the great Muslim revolution takes over the whole world I wonder if they will follow such laws?

    So much fail in our politicians!

    They weaken a whole nation with such foolish laws they think will make themselves somehow safer.
    All without realizing no one follows such laws if they intend to kill or murder someone!

    How is this working out for France and other nations with their terrorist problems!
    ...It's not!

    This^^^. Threatening "the Security of a Free State" requires some sort of War as a response.

    EDIT

    Bring it, Gorsuch is on the Court.

    It's time to IGNORE gun laws - how are you going to keep up with or stay in compliance with laws that change on a whim. Then when they do change, they use your compliance against you.

    If they decide to go after you, you are already screwed anyway, don't plead out, don't waive any reading of hearing - make them choke.

    They're rejecting both Heller AND Miller. Should prove interesting when it reaches - as it will - the (by then) Nine.

    Boy, they are going to be in trouble when they figure out most bows and arrows these days are better than the ones the English used in medieval times.[rofl]

    Wait till they are slaughtered like sheep..

    Then what, they will conscript the poor to defend the ones that caused all this!

    F-that noise!

    It sickens me when people mention Newtown in the same breath as they do "gun control". Newtown was the clearest illustration of the mental health system's failings. I'm sorry that we don't have a cure for people like Lanza or the young man who was killed in Portland, ME this past weekend (earlier post). But I am 100% not sorry if we have to institutionalize people like them or what the effect of doing so would have on those that loved them.

    This needs to be settled by the SC once and for all.

    The touchy feely liberals are why the "insane asylums" were shut down.

    Hopefully SCOTUS thinks higher of the second than this court.

    "In a separate concurring opinion, Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III said state governments — not the courts — have long been responsible for the safety of residents"

    Tell me how well that's working out for the law-abiding citizens.

    I grew up in Maryland, left there at 17 to go to school in Connecticut, but I still have some family and friends in Maryland. I pay some attention to the gun laws there as I still visit. It's one of the very few states on the East Coast that I can't legally carry a firearm in. My friends there tel me it's very difficult to get a permit as a resident.
