    I think the SCOTUS ignored in their decision in Heller, specifically the definition and description of militias in disregard of the designation of militas in the Second Amendment.  Since the Heller decision, though, several of the justices who voted in the majority have made statements to the effect that the government does have the authority to limit the numbers and types of weapons that individuals can own.  The legislature just hasn't passed any laws to do that.  

    So the question is no longer one of constitutionality; it's been thrown back into the political realm.
