It is hard for me to blame the court for staying out of a state issue as states rights are a big thing with me.   If a state enacts a law you simply can't live with then you have 49 others plus some territories to move to.   However, if the Federal Government enacts a law you simply can't live with you have no where to go.   Put this same case the other way around, where a state lifts a ban on such guns and magazines.   Do you want the Supremes doing their song and dance and over turning that state?  I don't.   Let the states govern themselves and let the Federal Government and it's courts deal with National issues.

I also believe the Constitution provides that we can own the same arms as the Military.  If that is a National standard and a state acts against it then of course the High Court should intervene.   That is not the case here as other states have such bans.   Until the issue is settled at the National level we are all at risk of further infringement on our rights.

If they would simply under stand the meaning of "Keep and Bear" and "Shall not be infringed" there would be no issue.

This is not a states issue. This is a 2nd Amendment issue.

No, it is a state issue as the US Supreme Court has already upheld that states can make such restrictions.  That is why California, Illinois and Taxachuettes have had bans in place for years that other states don't have.    That is also why the High Court is not hearing the case that you posted about.

And yes, I agree it is an infringement on the 2nd Amendment Rights of the people in that state, however the High Court does not.  My interpretation of the law means nothing.  We have Courts for that and they have ruled.   Wrongly, but they have ruled.

Good thing is that the anti-gun crowd can not now bring a suit banning such weapons in a Specific state to the Federal courts.  The Courts would not hear it.   So the same rulings that screws gun owners in the left wing states protect us in the moderate and right wing states.  + and - here for gun owners. However, if gun owners in each state are not vigilant their legislative bodies can pass the same bans and they will be screwed.

The only reason that someone in a state can bring an issue now to the High Court is for an "Over Reach".  That means that a state has over reached the bounds of prior US Court Rulings and thus infringing on the rights of people in that state beyond what the Court has allowed in the Past.  In most of these type case the Court would simply review it and if they decline hearing the case they in essence rule for the respondent (the State).  If they have doubts or question they would then hear the case and make a ruling.   The fact that they passed on the case you posted means that state is in the right based on their past rulings and the gun owners of that state are screwed.


I tried to explain this without legal speak and may not have done and adequate job so anyone able to explain it more clearly please jump right in.
