Federal Court Upholds Maryland's Ban on Assault Weapons

A  federal court  upheld  Maryland's ban  on dozens of different assault weapons.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 10-4, "We have no power to extend Second Amendment protection to the  weapons of war ." Judge Robert King said the only reason to have high-powered weapons such as AR-15s was to "lay waste to a battlefield full of combatants." The opinion cited the 2008 Supreme Court case  District of Columbia v.

Heller,  which said weapons that would be most useful to the military aren't protected under the Second Amendment.

The measure was passed in 2013 in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

A National Rifle Association spokesperson said, "It is absurd to hold that the most popular rifle in America is not a protected 'arm' under the Second Amendment."
