Constitutional attorney Steve Halbrook talks to Cam Edwards about a ruling handed down by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in the case United States v. Skoien. The case involves whether certain classes of misdemeanor should be sufficient to prohibit the offender from using a firearm. Although this court previously ruled against incorporation of the Second Amendment, its decision here is that, using intermediate scrutiny, the case for using a misdemeanor to take away hunting privileges is shaky. The court also specified that for a case of self-defense it would have employed strict scrutiny, which would have produced a more definitive ruling in favor of broader gun rights.
