U.S. Supreme Court Says Gun Ownership is a Right Under the Second Amendment

In recent the case of McDonald v. Chicago, the United States Supreme Court voted 5 to 4 saying that the Second Amendment does in fact protect our right to keep and bear arms.  The Court was overturning the City of Chicago's laws restricting one's right to own certain guns and banning the possession of all handguns. 

This decision went much further than the two year old case of District of Columbia v. Heller, which never came out and used the words of the Second Amendment. 

You can view the new opinion on the Supreme Court website at:


For opinions or explanations about the current state of gun laws in your area, I recommend consulting  This is also a great site to find out how to get more politically active on this issue. 

In California you can check out, this is the State Department of Justice website which is also very informative.
