On this edition of Civil Rights Roundup, NRA Deputy General Counsel Stefan Tahmassebi joins Cam Edwards to discuss the implications and details of the landmark McDonald v. City of Chicago Supreme Court decision. Tahmassebi explains how the 2008 Heller decision laid the groundwork for the Second Amendment to be incorporated by clarifying "that individual self defense is the central component of the Second Amendment right," and that it is a foundation of American ordered government. Because of these definitions, the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment applied to the Second Amendment allowing for incorporation-a ruling that will be studied in American law schools 100 years from now.
