Massachusetts ban on assault weapons doesn't violate 2nd Amendment, judge rules


Quote
A judge in Massachusetts on Friday ruled against a lawsuit that questioned the state’s ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, declaring that the weapons were not protected by the Second Amendment.

Assault weapons are considered to be military firearms, U.S. District Judge William Young said in his ruling, therefore disqualifying them from being included in a citizen’s right to “bear arms.”

I hope the US Supreme Court is ready to explain the errors in Mr. Young's ruling and the funny talker's laws.

I figure that between the facts that 1) AR 15s are NOT assault weapons and 2) the complete lack of a civilian/military arms distinction in the 2nd Amendment ... this "should" be an easy fix for the courts.
