Marylanders Beg SCOTUS to Overturn 4th Circuit Anti-Gun, Anti-Human-Defense Ruling

After the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that gun rights are only selective and that the state can define what constitutes selective, a group of Marylanders are attempting to get the Supreme Court to visit the ruling.  They hope to get the Supreme Court to reassert less restrictive interpretations of what constitutes ‘common sense’ gun control.

As I have often said, there is no Rule of Law, there is only Rule of Power.  Individuals tasked with deciding what is “constitutional” have the ghosts in language to assist them to produce almost whatever ruling they desire to produce, one that matches their particular worldview, not one that matches some sense of objective adjutication of ‘law.’  So long as the individuals deem that a ruling will not fundamentally challenge their personal power, they are inclined to more freely pursue judgments based on their personal worldviews.

It remains to be seen if the Supreme Court will deem it necessary to scale back this latest infringement on the basic human condition of providing for your own self defense.


Fairfax, Va.— A group of Maryland citizens, with the support of the National Rifle Association, filed a petition to the United States Supreme Court on Friday seeking to reverse a Court of Appeals ruling that stripped some of America’s most popular rifles of Second Amendment protection. The 4th Circuit ruling in the case Kolbe v. Hogan is a direct contradiction of the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision, District of Columbia v. Heller, which re-affirmed American citizens’ right to self-defense.

“Lower courts have been making up their own rules when it comes to the Second Amendment for too long, and the Kolbe decision crossed yet another line,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action. “The Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. The popular rifles and standard magazines banned in Maryland are some of the best tools for self-defense. We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will reverse this egregious decision.”

In February, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the Second Amendment does not protect the most popular rifles in the country – including AR-15s – as well as all standard capacity detachable magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

The petition asks the Supreme Court to confirm that it’s ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller protects the most popular semi-automatic rifles and magazines.
