It is in fact likely that intermediate scrutiny will be applied to some regulation of the rights described by the Second Amendment. In general, particularly with regard to First Amendment cases, strict scrutiny has only been applied to "core" rights. So, for example, in First Amendment cases strict scrutiny has generally been applied to purported regulation of political speech, and intermediate scrutiny has generally been applied to purported regulation of commercial speech.

There can be no doubt that some regulation of the rights described by the Second Amendment will be sustained by the courts. Second Amendment jurisprudence is still in its infancy, so the scope and extent of permissible regulation of rights described by the Second Amendment is still unclear.
