With all the chatter around Virginia regarding Second Amendment sanctuaries, gun advocates argue gun control laws will infringe on their Second Amendment right.

However, Brad Jacob, an Associate Professor of Law at Regent University, said it may be possible for Virginia to restrict certain types of guns, like semi-automatic weapons because the Supreme Court hasn't ruled on gun restrictions.

“The courts will, in time, I think give us a tighter definition of what’s covered by the Second Amendment, what weapons could be banned without violating the Second Amendment,” said Jacob.

" ... SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" A lot of people seem to be clueless about what "infringe" means.

You can buy a dictionary at any good bookstore .... order one from, or go to an online dictionary.


We have devolved into a truly ignorant culture.

The premise of the title is absurd on its face.

The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the land. It says so, itself. There IS no question of 'legality' regarding an enumerated right.

Its meaning is determined by text, history and tradition, not innovative grammatical parsing.

"However, Brad Jacob, an Associate Professor of Law at Regent University, said it may be possible for Virginia to restrict certain types of guns, like semi-automatic weapons because the Supreme Court hasn't ruled on gun restrictions."

That is misleading, if not a deliberate lie.

U.S. v. Miller did just that in 1939.

The Court ruled that arms that don't meet the following criteria are not protected:

1. in common use
2. have some reasonable relationship to militia use
3. could contribute to the common defense
4. are any part of the "ordinary" military equipment

Re: semi-automatic weapons

1. check
2. check
3. check
4. check

So the Court HAS ruled on this matter, eight decades ago.

No law ever written has stopped any robber, rapist or killer, like cold blue steel in the hands of their last intended victim. — W. Emerson Wright
