      Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited.
      It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever
      purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment
      or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be
      taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the
       possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of fire-arms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual
       weapons. Pp. 54–56

      I want 1 less Tiny Coffin, Why Don't You? Support The President's Gun Violence Plan.
