SCOTUS Gun Decision Likely to Have Little State Impact
Yes, according to a US Supreme court decision announced yesterday, you have the right to bear arms. But concealed arms? McDonald versus the City of Chicago doesn't go that far, says Onalaska'a Hubert Hoffman, vice president of Wisconsin Carry. So the case is likely to have little impact on state gun laws. He says the state only controls the manner in which people can carry guns, not whether they can have them at all so McDonald probably doesn't apply in that sense. But Hoffman does believe the court's decision might help his group challenge state restrictions of guns in school zones.
