This just in from the LA Times“…the Supreme Court on Monday rejected a 2nd Amendment challenge to a local law that forbids the sale or possession of semiautomatic weapons that carry more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

The justices by a 7-2 vote refused to review rulings by judges in Chicago who upheld a ban on assault weapons in the city of Highland Park as a reasonable gun-control regulation. Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia dissented.”

This is a step in the right direction.  An individual’s Second Amendment rights aren’t hurt by restricting a certain type of weapon.
