Bradley: Supreme Court decision on Second Amendment not as good as it seems

It’s another step by the Supreme Court to support gun rights. In a five to four vote Monday the justices held that the Second Amendment restrains the government’s ability to significantly limit the right to keep and bear arms.A local Constitutional scholar, Scott Bradley, says he does not believe people should be dancing in the streets over this decision. On KVNU’s For the People program Monday night, Bradley said the right to keep and bear arms was not created by the Second Amendment but rather it is a God-given right.”The idea that someone can deny the right to defend themselves and their lands and everything else like that, all their property, it is completely a scurrilous idea. “But for the federal government to inject itself in this way I think will have a long term dilatory effect on the freedom of this land. And, in fact, will ultimately and finally be used as a leverage to bring other onerous things upon the nation.”Bradley is running for U.S. Senate on the Constitution Party ticket.
