17. Yes, finally the truth is being acknowledged:

 

“What we are most pleased about is how the court has recognized that the Second Amendment is just as, if not at times more, important in public as it is in the home,” he said. “The right of self-defense doesn’t end at your front door.

In the opinion, Posner wrote that “a Chicagoan is a good deal more likely to be attacked on a sidewalk in a rough neighborhood than in his apartment on the 35th floor of the Park Tower.”


Duh...

The Supreme Court rulings only covered guns in the home because the case before them only related to guns in the home. But nothing in the language of the Second Amendment or in its legal history supports limiting the right to homes.
