Judge Says Second Amendment Doesn’t Protect AR-15s

A federal judge rules that the AR-15 and similar weapons commonly used in self-defense “fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual arms,” and we have no right to keep or bear them.

Nobody looted the gun shop and tattoo parlor that share a storefront in a strip mall less than 10 minutes from Ferguson, Mo., where riots followed the police shooting of Michael Brown.

According to the local Riverfront Times, the owners of County Guns and Tattoo Studio arrived with friends to protect their businesses. One owner carried a rifle and pistol and wore a vest, while the other had his own rifle.

Their defensive use of firearms as rioters burned and looted other stores in the strip mall couldn’t have occurred in Maryland. There, AR-15-style weapons are banned, more because of the rifles’ “scary” appearance than their lethality. Maryland’s Firearm Safety Act of 2013 makes their possession and open carry illegal.
