4th Circuit Strikes Down Maryland’s Recent 2nd Amendment Infringements

Democrat Governor and freedom hating Marylander Martin O’Malley rammed through an assault weapons ban as well as a high capacity magazine ban in the wake of a the Sandy Hook shooting.

Gun Controllers never let a good tragedy go to waste by passing legislation that would do nothing to stop the tragedy in the first place but then again gun control isn’t about stopping criminals, its about denying rights to the law abiding and leaving them defenseless.

Fortunately the 4th Circuit court agrees and ruled thus in the case of Kolbe v. Maryland:

“In our view, Maryland law implicates the core protection of the Second Amendment—’the right of law-abiding responsible citizens to use arms in defense of hearth and home,’ District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 635 (2008), and we are compelled by Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 (2010), as well as our own precedent in the wake of these decisions, to conclude that the burden is substantial and strict scrutiny is the applicable standard of review for Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment claim.”

To put it simply, the 2nd Amendment is a God given right to which any limitation must be met with the STRICTEST of scrutiny and not some BS feel good liberal touchy feely mindset.

The 2-1 decision now sends the gun-control law back to a lower court for review because it “implicates the core protection of the Second Amendment.”  With this review the lower court now is instructed to view the law and future gun control measures with strict scrutiny.  A scrutiny that will not allow for such bans to exist as they violate the citizens of Maryland’s Constitutional rights.

In Maryland, the days of feel good legislation that denies the rights of the people seem to be coming to an end.

As a small reminder, remember who appoints federal judges…the President.  Make sure you support one you believe will continue to place strong 2nd Amendment justices to the bench.
