There are no significant Second Amendment obstacles to local and state gun control at this point.

California Cities Are Free to Regulate Gun Stores Out of Existence
[The twisted bit of reasoning that led to this particular situation is:
No historical authority suggests that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to sell a firearm.
If you read the appeals court ruling a little deeper you will see they don’t see any reason why the manufacture of all firearms couldn’t be regulated out of existence. Sure, you have a right to keep and bear “arms” of some sort, but no right exists for someone to build them or parts to repair them. The same would appear to be true for ammunition.
Assuming you want to retain some semblance of the right to keep and bear arms in the all the states there are three paths ahead of us.
- Change the culture.
- Get gun friendly justices into the Federal Courts with particular attention to the SCOTUS.
- Take up arms and use them effectively and efficiently.
Option 1 is probably a lost cause in places like California, New Jersey, New York, and other tyrannical states.
Option 3 is far too uncomfortable to give serious consideration until all other options are exhausted.
We have to get behind option 2 and make it a reality while preparing for option 3.—Joe]
