Second Amendment Applies to States (and Localities)


U.S. Supreme Court Rules for Incorporation in McDonald v. City of Chicago: Litigation Likely

Last year, this blog reported that the U.S. Supreme Court would be ruling on a key Second Amendment case arising in Chicago that may have a bigger impact on state and local governments than the D.C. gun ban case previously decided. The post was entitled, “U.S. Supreme Court to hear Key Second Amendment Case.”

My post suggested that one of the key issues to be decided was whether the Second Amendment applied to state (and localities) via the Due Process Clause or the Privileges and Immunities Clause.

Today, the case was decided.
