Here at Ready to Fire News, we talk about Second Amendment issues on a fairly regular basis — as you would expect any member of the gun-owning community in the United States to do. However, it may surprise you to learn that discussion on exactly what the Second Amendment means hasn’t really graced the Supreme Court all too much.
In the case of DC vs. Heller, which codified the right of an individual’s right to bear arms, this was the first time the high court had touched the topic at all in about 70 years. Before that, anti-gun municipalities such as Washington, DC were able to get away with passing draconian laws ruling that citizens couldn’t even keep a firearm in their own home.
This Supreme Court case changed all of this, and is chiefly responsible for the way we debate gun rights in America today.
Gun owners everywhere interested in furthering the cause of Second Amendment rights would do well to learn more about this historic moment, and understand the arguments presented on either side. Thankfully, one helpful YouTuber condensed the entire event into about five minutes. It’s definitely worth a watch — check it out below.
