Judge Upholds DC Gun Control
All in the name of public safety.
A judge in Washington, DC, has once again defied the Constitution. The Associated Press explains: “A federal judge has upheld the gun-control law in the District of Columbia, which bans assault weapons and large-capacity magazines while imposing registration requirements for handguns and long guns.” The reason? According to the AP, “U.S. District Judge James Boasberg said the city seeks to combat gun violence and promote public safety and that the current law does so in a constitutionally permissible manner.” Instead of trampling gun rights, they should instead try addressing the culture of violence bred on statist “poverty plantations,” the product of generations of Democratic Party policies. And we’d also like Judge Boasberg to show us the language within the Constitution that allows the government to regulate the Second Amendment. Here in our humble shop, “shall not be infringed” has always meant “shall not be infringed.”
