    I wish to end this conversation, OK? I don't know what footnote 27 is, and frankly, do not care. Regina, marabout, and Ociyap are things I would like to pay attention to.
    thanks.

    My personal computer is limited, can't post without tagging on. Community computer better. Pardon tagging to comments, spelling, please.

      Even without a permit, if I'm a resident of say AZ.  And footnote 27 in Heller essentially says that the state will have to, at minimum, show that a gun control law substantially furthers some legitimate state interest.  It may mean, upon further decision, that the Courts will adopt  strict scrutiny when considering challenges to gun control laws.  That is the state must have a compelling interest to enforce the law, that its enforcement is narrowly tailored to pursue that interest, and that said enforcement is the least intrusive measure available.

      You can exit the conversation whenever you'd like.
