I'm no fan of the US's view on firearms, but this makes no sense to me:

'Put simply, we have no power to extend Second Amendment protection to the weapons of war,' wrote Judge Robert King

Wasn't the point in the 2nd to ensure there was a standing militia in case it was needed in times of War (civil or otherwise). If anything, you'd think that line of thought would lead to banning weapons with limited utility at war?

Times change, and all that, but seems odd.
