Gun Control in New York City
Implications of Heller

From the Paper:

"Gun control has been a very controversial issue in American society since the enactment of state and local restrictions against gun ownership by private citizens. According to proponents of private gun ownership, the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution specifically guarantees the rights of citizens to bear arms. Conversely, gun control regulation advocates maintain that the only right granted by the Second Amendment is the right of individual states to maintain armed militias, such as state national guards and police forces."
