Add to that list the Marxist Police Chief of Salt Lake City who said recently that he didn’t think it was unconstitutional to ban assault weapons, high capacity magazines and otherwise put limits on guns and ammunition.
We should expect as much from the brain-dead democrats in this country. But I am more than mildly curious how these constitutional scholars completely pass over “...shall not be infringed...” and think that means “We can do anything we want”
That's also the current state of federal law, as stated by the DC Circuit. The Supreme Court declined to hear the case. "Heller II."

When the moral authority runs out, switch to superior firepower.
But the premise was accepted long ago that the feds could regulate firearms despite the “shall not be infringed” language. You can’t own bazookas and machine guns, for instance. So we’re on the slippery slope and it’s just a matter of where the line will be drawn. Unfortunately in this mean old world of ours you can’t rely on words written on paper to hold the line. Everything is a fight.
