Supreme Court Needs To Clarify Second Amendment

From CATO:

While Heller clarified that the Second Amendment secures an individual right, the ruling left many questions about the scope of that right unanswered. Since then, several courts have made clear that they plan to take only as much from Heller as they absolutely have to.

Since Heller struck down D.C.’s ban on functional firearms in the home, recalcitrant courts pretend that the Second Amendment is limited to the right to keep arms and that legislatures can for very little (or no) reason to ignore the right to bear them outside the home.

The CATO Institute runs the National Police Misconduct Reporting Project. It is important to remember that any group, be it police, military or the government is made up of people who are flawed and make mistakes. If men were angels we wouldn’t need laws to govern them.

Cato Report on Defensive Use of Firearms

The Cato Institute just released a study on the defensive use of firearms entitled Tough Targets.

What would be the effect of depriving ordinary, law-abiding citizens from keeping arms for self-defense? One result seems certain: the law-abiding would be at a distinct disadvantage should criminals acquire guns from underground markets. After all, it is simply not possible for police officers to get to every scene where they are urgently needed.
