Lamar Smith on Heller...

Short version:
Congress has the authority to impose some restrictions on certain constitutionally protected liberties. These restrictions, however, cannot eliminate the fundamental rights protected by the Constitution or render them meaningless and ineffective. The Washington gun ban clearly is unconstitutional because it does not merely limit Second Amendment rights -- it eliminates them.
The author is a member of the House of Representatives.
