CA Mag Ban Goes Down

Post by Mad Anthony Wayne »

Expected result - District judge kills it ans CA appeals to Circuit.


p. 49

It is remarkable to discover that there were no outright prohibitions on keeping or possessing guns. No laws of any kind.


From the adoption of the Second Amendment through the next 50 years, there were no firearm restrictions in any states north of the Mason-Dixon Line.


If anything, regulations were not about what kind of firearm one was not allowed to keep, but about the kind of firearm one was required to buy and have ready for militia duties.
The same was largely true south of the Mason-Dixon Line (disregarding laws targeting slaves and Indians, neither of which were considered to be citizens by lawmakers). A citizen could reside in any of the northern states and half of the southern states for the first fifty years free from state government firearm restrictions.
