Arkansas Attorney-General Signs On

Nice to see another state attorney-general agreeing to take our side on the DC suit:
Nov 27, 2007 -- LITTLE ROCK— Today, Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced his intent to support the Second Amendment as a “right to bear arms” for individuals, not just militia members, by joining a brief to be filed with the U.S. Supreme Court. Last week, the high court agreed to hear District of Columbia v. Heller, a lawsuit challenging gun laws enacted by the District of Colombia. The case is expected to be heard next spring.
The fundamental issue in Heller is whether the 2nd amendment confers a right to bear arms on individuals, as opposed to only state militias.
“I believe the Second Amendment confers a Constitutional right to bear arms on individuals, not just on militia members,” McDaniel said. “It is a right that belongs to law-abiding Americans and it cannot be taken away by state, federal, or local laws.”
Thanks to Arms and the Law for the link.
