Every one of these judges ought to be physically reminded of the actual purpose of the 2nd amendment. This is a travesty of Progress justice. Of course, Bloomberg is jumping with joy.

Firearm Ban After Assault Left Intact by U.S. High Court
By Greg Stohr – Nov 4, 2013 9:34 AM ET

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up a new gun-rights case, turning away an appeal from a man barred from owning a firearm because of a misdemeanor assault conviction 45 years ago.
The appeal by Jefferson Wayne Schrader contended that the ban violated the Constitution’s Second Amendment, which protects the right to bear arms.

The justices have repeatedly turned away gun-rights appeals in the last three years. The court hasn’t considered a Second Amendment case since 2010, when it said people have a right to have a handgun in the home for self-defense purposes.
Schrader was convicted of misdemeanor assault and battery after getting into a fistfight with a gang member in Annapolis, Maryland, in 1968. He received a $100 fine and no jail time. Since then, he says, he served in Vietnam, received an honorable discharge from the Navy and has had no meaningful encounters with law enforcement in the last 45 years. . .
