Rationalizing Away The Right Of The People To Keep And Bear Arms Posted on May 30, 2017 by Ammoland
By Roger J. Katz, Attorney at Law and Stephen L. D'Andrilli
Maryland's Firearm Safety Act: Attacking The Core Of The Second Amendment Through The Veneer Of Promoting Public Safety.
KOLBE VS. HOGAN:

New York, NY -(Ammoland.com)- Kolbe is not merely an example of a poorly decided case; it is illustrative of the way in which courts, antithetical to the second amendment right of the people to keep and bear arms, use legal argot to disguise their contempt for and, indeed, abhorrence of our sacred right and their disdain for the Heller court rulings.

To understand the Kolbe case*-to truly understand its diabolical import-it is incumbent to delve into the intricacies and nuances.

Nuances of the seminal 2008 U.S. Supreme Court case, District of Columbia vs. Heller, 554 U.S. 570; 128 S. Ct. 2783; 171 L. Ed. 2d 637 (2008). It is difficult to appreciate the lengths to which some federal courts will go to undermine the right of the people to keep and bear arms as codified in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; and it is difficult to appreciate just how horrific the decision in Kolbe is-certainly to those who take seriously the right of the people to keep and bear arms-without considering the thought that went into the Heller decision, as penned by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the Majority of the high Court.

If you want to save yourself over an hour of blusterous reading, as I did, here is the conclusion from the Kolbe Case:

CONCLUSION

In summary, the Firearm Safety Act of 2013, which represents the considered judgment
of this State's legislature and its governor, seeks to address a serious risk of harm to law
enforcement officers and the public from the greater power to injure and kill presented by assault
weapons and large capacity magazines. The Act substantially serves the government's interest in
protecting public safety, and it does so without significantly burdening what the Supreme Court
has now explained is the core Second Amendment right of "law-abiding, responsible citizens to
use arms in defense of hearth and home." Accordingly, the law is constitutional and will be
upheld.
Basically, the government fears semi-auto rifles with full-cap mags, therefore, the ban is upheld and magically doesn't burden the Second Amendment. The end.

Which just states the court's finding supporting the state's position. To understand why the state as well as the lower and appellate courts are wrong one should read the links. A bit long-winded, yes. But all important points.
