Using the courts to remind Illinois of the 'bear' in 'keep and bear arms'

That would seem to indicate that the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals now does acknowledge that the right to keep and bear arms, as protected by the Second Amendment, is a fundamental right. To deny the motion for an injunction against a total ban of defensive firearm carry, the court would have to edit "and bear" out of "keep and bear arms."

Editing inconvenient parts out of the Second Amendment might be acceptable for Brady Campaign legal director Dennis "What People?" Henigan, but it cannot be borne in the courts. [More]
