F**king Maryland

In an affront to the U.S. Supreme Court and Heller, the Fourth Circuit upheld Maryland’s assault weapons ban, writes The National Review.

Perhaps the Fourth Circuit has forgotten where it sits in the pecking order. Or perhaps the Fourth’s majority is unfamiliar with Caetano. Certainly, its grasp of Heller is wanting. In pushing back against the majority’s newfangled test, the dissenters correctly note that “Heller in no way suggests that the military usefulness of a weapon disqualifies it from Second Amendment protection. That is the majority’s singular concoction.” Indeed it is. As for Heller’s “common use” and “dangerous and unusual” standards, both of those are thrown casually out the window. The evidence, notes Judge Traxler, leads one to the “unavoidable conclusion that popular semiautomatic rifles such as the AR-15 are commonly possessed by American citizens for lawful purposes within the meaning of Heller.”

Speaking of the AR-15…

It’s time for “Shootin’ the Shit” with Bathrobe Bill Schmalfeldt on 94.7 FM Minimum Wage Radio! We Kill Everything! 

Just go read the whole thing, before SCOTUS trashes it.

Which they will.

  1. Thank goodness for Trump & Gorsuch. I wasn't a fan of Trump before but he is growing on me.

    1. Big fan of Gorsuch. Trump has a ways to go, but I can't fault his efforts to treat the media with the respect they deserve.

  2. They don't care. The point is to disarm the people. The "elite" in this country want to be the ones who decide who can carry a gun.

  3. Back when I still had some faith in the media I always wondered why they didn't ask those in power that were trying to disarm the average citizen why they themselves either had carry permits or, for those that could afford it, have armed guards for themselves. But sadly, the media just carried their water and never pointed out their hypocrisy.
