Even some pro-gun scholars and advocates reluctantly agree. “I think under the Heller decision, registration would be constitutional,” Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation in Bellevue, Wash., told CBSNews.com this week. “It doesn’t make it good public policy.”
“Registration is probably not unconstitutional,” says Don Kilmer, an attorney in San Jose, Calif. who has sued two California counties for denying law-abiding citizens permits to carry concealed weapons. “There’s a difference between registration as a permissible regulation and registration as good policy.”What's your opinion? Why have I heard so many times that registration is unconstitutional? Do you sometimes get the impression, like I do, that pro-gun people refer to the Constitution too much? Everything with them is either constitutional or unconstitutional, ever notice that?
What's wrong with just liking guns or just wanting to have guns for self-protection, or any other reason for that matter? Why does it so often have to be placed on the lofty plane of "rights?"
