9th Circuit extends Heller to state governments

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
The Ninth Circuit holds in Nordyke v. King that Heller v. District of Columbia, which recognized an individual's right to possess arms, applies to the states through the 14th Amendment.  The Circuit also holds, however, that a county government may prohibit possession of a gun on munipal property as such property fits within the exception from the Second Amendment for "sensitive places," such as government buildings and schools, that Heller recognized.
