Repost from Eugene Volokh- Delaware Supreme Court strikes down broad restrictions on gun possession in state parks and forests

December 9, 2017

The right to bear arms is restored to Delaware parks and forests. A judicial opinion that says..’when all else fails try following the law.’ The decision runs some 143 pages so the legal arguments are not as straight forward as one might think..or as one might hope.

“..at its core, this case raises straightforward questions of Delaware constitutional and administrative law. We are asked whether unelected officials from the State’s parks and forest departments, whose power is expressly limited, can ban (except for a narrow exception for hunting) the possession of guns in state parks and forests in contravention of Delawareans’ rights under the State’s
constitution. Clearly they cannot. They lack such authority because they may not pass unconstitutional laws, and the regulations completely eviscerate a core right to keep and bear arms for defense of self and family outside the home — a right this Court has already recognized.”
