Seventh Circuit Upholds ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban

The Seventh Circuit just upheld an “assault weapons” ban in the city of Highland Park, Illinois. The (terrible) decision is here. The dissenting argument strikes me as being mostly legally and historically correct, and extremely well constructed. Its author, Judge Manion, is clearly aiming his words directly at the Supreme Court.

The majority opinion, by contrast . . . well, oh dear.
