Burr's Travis Ramey Featured on HelloHunting.com

    Burr associate Travis Ramey recently contributed to an article on HelloHunting.com on "Gun Control Battle Taking Center Stage in Congress." 

    A fight is now raging in our nation, with the issue at its heart having been simmering for many years. Following the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012, politicians, legislators and President Barak Obama began calling for stricter gun laws. Many gun rights organizations, such as the National Rifle Association (NRA), the National Association for Gun Rights and Gun Owners of America, have begun their rally to fight new gun control legislation.

    The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America states that “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
    The Second Amendment was upheld by the United States Supreme Court in 2008, and again in 2010, ruling that the amendment “protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes such as self-defense within the home within many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession listed by the Court as being consistent with the Second Amendment,” according to District of Columbia v. Hiller (2008), and that the Second Amendment “limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government,” (McDonald v. Chicago, 2010).
