Although Heller vs Washington DC (2008) declared that The 2nd Admendment is indeed an individual right tied to the natural right of self-defense, it was only applicable to the Federal level until today. In a ruling of Nordyke vs King, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco incorporated The 2nd Admendment against the states and local governments.
Although it is a landmark rulling, you may not find it on the front page of major news organizations because it is pro Second Admendment. The Bill of Rights has 10 Admendment and we are obligated to support all 10 and not just the one that we agree with. Below are links to a few reports on this important ruling.
