Shelly Parker et al v. District of Columbia
If you really believe the Second Amendment grants a right to
individuals to have guns for their personal protection and it has
nothing to do with a right to field a well-regulated militia or to
serve in one, this should be your end-all case. It lays out your
argument in every detail.
Except that the suit is based on the false premise that Amendment II establishes a right:
"...these laws violate the Second Amendment, which establishes a fundamental individual right to bear arms..."
Amendment II does NOT establish a right, it declares a PROTECTION against government infringement.
