United States v. One Palmetto State Armory — Civil / Second Amendment — affirmance — Thompson
The Second Amendment does not give people the right to own machine guns, the Third Circuit held today. And would-be machine gun owners can’t dodge the federal law against machine-gun possession by just creating a trust to own it instead.
Joining Thompson D-NJ were Ambro and Krause. Arguing counsel were Stephen Stamboulieh for the would-be machine gun owner and Patrick Nemeroff for the government.
