The State’s primary defense of its unique law banning all carrying of operable firearms in public is that the Second Amendment does not guarantee an individual right to bear a firearm outside one’s home for personal defense.
Bah. Heller said the right is most acute in the home, but not that it was limited to the home.

(...) is collective in nature, tied exclusively to service in the militia and arising only when necessary for the common defense against “an oppressive military force if the constitutional order [breaks] down.”
OK, so, wait. Um. Didn't we put that one to bed back in 2008?
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
