QOTD - Dennis Henigan

From the Reuters article on the remaining SCOTUS cases, found HERE:
In the gun rights case, even gun control advocates said they expect the Supreme Court to strike down Chicago's 28-year-old handgun ban.

They said they also expect the court to extend its landmark 2008 ruling that individual Americans have a constitutional right to own guns to all the cities and states.

Dennis Henigan of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence said the decision will be used by the gun lobby to challenge a myriad of state and local gun laws. "With few exceptions, these challenges will fail," he said.

I wonder what his definition of "few" is? The prevailing wisdom on this issue is that SCOTUS incorporates the Second Amendment against the cities and states. It is only a matter of time before all of the infringements get rolled back. Through legislation, preferably, by lawsuit if necessary.

I wonder why this concept is hard for Mr. Henigan to understand? Willful ignorance? Or, just plain bigoted stupidity? Only time will tell.

Pax,
