McDonald v. Chicago, 561 US 3025 (2010), is a landmark[1] decision of the Supreme Court of the United States that determined whether the Second Amendment applies to the individual states. The Court held that the right of an individual to “keep and bear arms” protected by the Second Amendment is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and applies to the states. The decision cleared up the uncertainty left in the wake of District of Columbia v. Heller as to the scope of gun rights in regard to the states.

That’s what I thought. The Brady Bunch were all about banning handguns and it didn’t work. I don’t see much different here. If 0bama tries to do anything through executive orders, I don’t consider that I am obligated to comply.
