Hopefully had a great weekend and is healthy. This weeks discussion is a very interesting one, and it’s on a topic that is highly debated today. The Second Amendment states that everyone has the right to bear arms. The government can not prevent you from having a fire arm which is what we learned in D.C. v. Heller 2008.
