2nd Amendment Applies to New Orleans

Judge refuses New Orleans' request to dismiss NRA lawsuit The absolutely stupid idea that the states are free to ignore the Bill of Rights was ignored (and derided) more than struck down.
The city asked the judge to dismiss the suit for lack of jurisdiction, saying "the states, and by extension their political subdivisions, are free to proscribe the possession of firearms."

The court rejected the motion, ruling the city did nothing to back up "the brazen assertion" that the second amendment did not apply.
I don't know what the outcome will be, but it seems that in the past, people who have violated civil rights have been sent to prison. [NRA-ILA]
