Lesson #4: The Right to Bear Arms in Ohio: A Fundamental Right That Is Neither Fundamental Nor Much of a Right
Scott B. Johnson's examination of the Ohio Supreme Court's ruling on Klein v. Leis concludes with these words:
"The Ohio Supreme Court has done an amazingly risky thing. While it may appear to those justices in the majority that it is politically correct to permit the legislature to limit what the court itself calls a fundamental right, it is not constitutionally correct to do so. The court must carefully consider the precedent it has set. If statutes regulating fundamental rights need only pass rational basis scrutiny, there is no limit to the abuse that government can inflict on the citizen or the rights that can be whittled away, chip by chip."
