MA court rules in favor of state semiauto ban

The FederalistOn Thursday, federal district court judge William Young upheld Massachusetts’ “assault-weapon” ban against a Second Amendment challenge brought by several individual plaintiffs, two firearm dealers, and the Gun Owners’ Action League. Young’s decision in Worman v. Healey represents the first time a court has ruled on the constitutionality of the Massachusetts statute.

Hogan, in upholding Maryland’s ban of semiautomatic rifles and large-capacity detachable magazines.

How long can the Supreme Court ignore these cases?
