Maryland citizens and the NRA have filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking it to reverse a Fourth Circuit ruling in the case of Kolbe v. Hogan. At issue is the Maryland Firearm Safety Act's ban on popular semiautomatic rifles and standard magazines holding more than 10 rounds. Second Amendment attorney and scholar Steve Halbrook says that the justifications for the gun ban are bizarre, referring to modern sporting rifles as "weapons of war" that are more lethal than an M-16. In reality, they are some of the most common and ordinary rifles in the country. Steve asks, what about the Heller and McDonald decisions? They cannot simply be nullified by a lower court ruling.
