Massachusetts law currently prohibits ownership of gassault weapons,h the statutory definition of which includes the most popular semi-automatic rifles in the country, as well as gcopies or duplicatesh of any such weapons. As for what that means, your guess is as good as ours. A group of plaintiffs, including two firearm dealers and the Gun Ownersf Action League, challenged the law as an unconstitutional violation of their Second Amendment rights. Unfortunately, both a federal trial judge and appellate court upheld the ban—though they could not agree on why.

What part about "Shall Not Infringe" confused them do you think? It would be interesting to hear where these oath breakers think that their expanded powers have come from.

Re: the 'tests' of the lower and appellate courts

"Like an M-16"? "Like a handgun"? Shirley you jest.

"[T]he Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding." D.C. v. Heller (2008)

The dicta in Heller settles those questions in one sentence, and these courts are disingenuously circling the issue to get from point A to point B.

Their 'reasoning' is not reasoning at all. It is facially spurious.
