Libertarian Party Executive Director on the District of Columbia v. Heller Case

Libertarian Party Executive Director Shane Cory:

“Today, the Supreme Court heard the case that will determine the future of gun rights in America for decades to come. We hope that the justices will remember that the individual right to keep and bear arms is essential for the protection of life, liberty and property. Without the ability for an individual to keep and bear arms, free from undue government regulation such as the District of Columbia’s outright ban on handguns, citizens are left vulnerable to the violence of criminals. Constraints on the right to free speech are immediately rejected as an endangerment to liberty in the United States. We feel that those on the Second Amendment should also be rejected in that same spirit, as we point out in our amicus curiae brief filed in support of Heller. The only acceptable outcome to this case is to uphold the ruling that the District of Columbia has no Constitutional right to deny law-abiding individuals the right to keep and bear firearms.”

The Libertarian National Committee filed an amicus brief on this case last month.

    I have a problem with using the phrase “law abiding”. Not all laws that one can be charged with violating are resonable, moral, ethical, or even constitutional.

    That “law abiding” requirement disturbs me too ! I was married to a vengeful woman who accused me of all sorts of things I didn’t do. The FIRST thing they did was take away my guns ! Of course, in this state, there is gun registration so they knew EXACTLY what to come for ! Although none of these charges have been substantiated (eight years later), I STILL don’t have possession of my handguns ! If this isn’t a violation of my rights; what is ? This country is dying before our very eyes !
