Supreme Court Case
1822, Bliss vs. Commonwealth.
Kentucky's legislature passed a law against canceled weapons, but the Kentucky Supreme Court struck the law down. A man appealed the verdict and pointed to the State Constitution, witch said "The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the state shall not be questioned." The Kentucky Supreme Court agreed. It said the state could not limit the kind of weapons a citizen could have.
