Rick Perry is the one I was speaking of. I might have thought of that last night when I was posting, but I was deep into oxycodone after surgery.

This morning I did see the confusion. Thanks

The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia last week persuasively ruled that the Constitution allows the District to ban possession of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines of bullets and to require citizens to meet sensible standards for registering guns.

Scalias "Heller" viewpoint of "reasonable regulation" in practice........

Default Remember US v. Miller?

That court ruled against Miller because it thought a sawed-off shotgun was not a military-type firearm. The implication of that decision is ownership of a military-type firearm is protected by the 2nd Amendment.

Should that current ban on assault weapons get to to the SCOTUS, it'll be a stretch IMHO for them to allow the ban in light of Miller.

I haven't read all the posts on this thread, so if someone else has posted the same opinion as I just did, I apologize for the duplication.
