What Does That Ruling Even Mean?

I want to point everyone to a Michigan Messenger post about the recent ruling in District of Columbia vs. Heller.  The case was about handgun ownership and was ruled in favor of the legality of owning handguns in D.C.  The article does a decent job of explaining the anticipated fallout of the case, and how it will affect, or not affect current Michigan licensing laws and regulations on what weapons can and cannot be owned.  In short, additional precedent will be needed from cases that more broadly apply at the state level before any further regulations are removed in Michigan or any other state.  D.C. vs. Heller was put together as a case to begin a series of victories for second amendment rights, not as the conclusion of such a series.  So, continue to follow Trying Liberty, and we will try to keep you updated as new decisions are handed down from courts around the country.  Hopefully, Liberty will prevail.
