Federal Judge Rules AR-15s are not Protected by Second Amendment

According to a 47-page opinion by U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake, “guns that were regulated by the state of Maryland last year, including AR-15 and AK-style rifles (as well as other magazine fed, semi-auto rifles with certain features), “fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual arms.”

If this ruling stands, it will result in legal creep. The next round of anti-Second Amendment advocates will argue that since an AR-15 does not come under the protection of the Second Amendment, all single shot weapons that hold more than a single bullet must be banned as well since an AR-15 is no more an assault rifle than a single shot rifle, because that’s what an AR-15 is.

If the ruling does stand, what will owners of AR-15s do? Nothing. They will keep their weapons because the right to “keep and bear arms” is a fundamental right, not a right given to us by government.
