Banning assault rifles would be constitutional
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

The very first recommendation is to “Ban assault-style firearms.” These firearms are the semi-automatic, military-style rifles that were used in several of the recent mass shootings. They are also the type of guns lawfully possessed by many people in this country for legitimate purposes like target shooting and self-protection.

Now, putting aside the difficult question of whether there is the political will to actually ban these guns, would such a ban be constitutional given the 2nd Amendment right to “keep and bear arms?”

Assault weapons have full automatic capability. Another anti-gun liberal that doesn't know what he is talking about.

And "Shall not be infringed" means that these rifles are constitutional.

What part of SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED do you need explained to you!

"With obvious purpose to assure the continuation and render possible the effectiveness of these [militia] forces, the declaration and guarantee of the Second Amendment were made. It must be interpreted and applied with that end in view." - U.S. v. Miller (1939)

Not hunting rifles. Not target guns. Militia weapons. SPECIFICALLY.

The right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against tyranny, which though now appears remote in America, history has proven to be always possible. — Senator Hubert H. Humphrey
