In 6 words, the court nullifies the Second Amendment for those living in Highland Park. The court also readily accepts the fact that this law will not stop or even lessen violent crime: “A ban on assault weapons won’t eliminate gun violence in Highland Park, but it may reduce the overall dangerousness of crime that does occur.” Read that sentence carefully.

As long as it’s just street thugs burning cars and throwing rocks and bricks and using less-than-large capacity magazines, then we can live with violent crime. But, what is unacceptable is law-abiding citizens owning a firearm that has one of five randomly selected features.
