Second Amendment

The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that a man convicted of failing to pay child support may never bear arms again. Wisconsin imposes a lifetime firearm ban on felons, even those convicted of non-violent felonies. This ban advances the state’s legitimate interest in public safety, and therefore does not violate the Second Amendment.
