  •  The law is quite settled, as I point out below. (2+ / 0-)

    All acts of the legislature, and of legislative bodies such as local governments, are presumed to be constitutional.  Otherwise a democratic government could not operate.

    Right now, my position is legally accurate in all respects, as to my knowledge no court has ruled otherwise.  You are of course entitled to believe that some court may determine otherwise.  I think that will be unlikely, but regardless of the likelihood of that occurring, until then, these laws remain fully valid and in effect.

    I should note that DC v. Heller expressed no opinion about such things as waiting periods and firearms registration.  I have my own doubts as to whether they reduce firearms violence, but I think that when and if such an issue is presented to the courts, it will be found to be well within the legislature's constitutional perogative to impose such requirements.

    You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!
