5:20 PM ET Wed, 4 Feb 2020 | 02:24:45A few days ago, the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects the right to bear arms for self-defense in self-protection.
In doing so, the justices struck down a key provision of the Brady Law that prohibited the sale of handguns to people who had been convicted of violent crimes.
That provision, known as the “castle doctrine,” prohibited a private party from having a gun in their home to protect themselves against the possibility of domestic violence.
The justices found that the provision was an unconstitutional infringement on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision that the gun ban was constitutional.
The court said the court had no choice but to hear the case because of the importance of this case to Second Amendment rights.
But in a major victory for gun owners, the court on Wednesday ordered the U.S. Supreme Court to hear a challenge to the law.
The gun ban is the latest of several gun restrictions that have been struck down in the wake of the tragedy in Las Vegas.
A few weeks ago, in a separate case, the high court struck down an Arizona law requiring that gun owners get a license to carry a handgun in public, in the same way that other law-abiding citizens get licenses to carry concealed handguns in restaurants, theaters, sports arenas, and stadiums.
In a separate ruling, the U,S.
Court of appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a state law that limited the number of rounds of ammunition that can be carried in a handgun to two.
The Supreme Court did not address whether it would rule on a similar state law in a similar case, but it is expected to take up the issue in the coming months.
