Already, one serious gun control group is HAPPY….you got that?….with the new supreme court ruling. New Yorkers Against Gun Violence (a gun-control group), is pleased with the decision. Says the director:
All the other amendments have reasonable restrictions on them. So I actually really like the Heller decision and the McDonald decision because they put the Second Amendment in the context of all the other amendments…people from the gun lobby like to promote the idea that you have an absolute or god-given right to possess a gun. That’s clearly not true; your right can be restricted.
I’m sure more will be coming.
