PRINCE GEORGE’S CO., Md. - A Prince George’s County Grand Jury has returned an eight count indictment against Cleveland Cavaliers Guard Delonte West. West is charged with transporting concealed weapons.
Police say the former Eleanor Roosevelt High School basketball star was found with two loaded pistols and a shot gun after being pulled over on the Beltway September 17th. Read Article here.
I have come to believe, after reading the draconian requirements of both New York State and New York City to own any type of gun, including shotguns, that the laws are designed deliberately to prevent the average citizen from owning or using defensive weapon even in one's own home. And as such, I believe such laws are grossly unconstitutional.
I would hope, the Supreme Court understands this and suspends all laws forbidding the ownership of handguns. I would also wish that all citizens current in prison due to violation of some unconstitutional law against ownership our use of firearms, would sue the prosecutor, the judge, and the arresting officer for violating his or her civil rights.
This would send a message to those who hate the Second Amendment. They fear the average citizen, but apparently not those who are outside of the law that use weapons for criminal enterprise.
