McDonald, et al. v. City of Chicago, 130 S. Ct. 3020 (U.S. Sup. Ct. 2010)

(Second Amendment applies to the states via the 14th Amendment; right to bear arms is fundamental to Nation's scheme of ordered liberty and is deeply rooted in Nation's history and tradition; self-defense is a fundamental constitutional right and the right to keep and bear arms is enforceable against the states because it is a privilege of American citizenship recognized by Sec. 1 of the 14th Amendment).
