I don't believe that the SCOTUS has ever said that. Please provide the case citation and specific quote. If I am wrong, I'll say so.

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, et al., PETITIONERS v.
DICK ANTHONY HELLER
Here is the first half of paragraph 4 of part IV:
“We must also address the Districts requirement (as applied to respondents handgun) that firearms in the home be rendered and kept inoperable at all times. This makes it impossible for citizens to use them for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional.”
Here is the summation paragraph:
In sum, we hold that the Districts ban on handgun possession in the home violates the Second Amendment , as does its prohibition against rendering any lawful firearm in the home operable for the purpose of immediate self-defense. Assuming that Heller is not disqualified from the exercise of Second Amendment rights, the District must permit him to register his handgun and must issue him a license to carry it in the home.
