Gun Control: Democrats Are Ignoring The Heller Decision

Before proceeding further, I want readers of this blog post to first keep this firmly in mind (source: Britannica.com):

District of Columbia v. Heller, case in which the U.S. Supreme Court on June 26, 2008, held (5–4) that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to possess firearms independent of service in a state militia and to use firearms for traditionally lawful purposes, including self-defense within the home. It was the first Supreme Court case to explore the meaning of the Second Amendment since United States v. Miller (1939).

In the aftermath of the tragic Uvalde, Texas school shooting, Democrats have been clamoring for more gun control laws, including red flag laws (confiscation), bans on so-called "assault weapons" (there's no such thing, by the way) and other measures (including holding gun and ammo manufacturers liable).

Some, like His Fraudulency Joe Biden, claim that the Second Amendment is "not absolute" Others want to amend the Second Amendment or repeal the Second Amendment and the list goes on. This is all in the name of "do something".

I've noticed that during all of this chatter over gun violence they've ignored that the Heller decision settled the question on individual rights to possess firearms. But this isn't too surprising, since the Democrats ignore constitutional provisions and laws when it suits them. 

So, whenever a Democrat says the Second Amendment is not a "sacred right" or is "misinterpreted", as a reader of the Sparta Independent recently wrote, just remember the District of Columbia vs. Heller Supreme Court decision.
