The American Bar Association published attorney Ray Ngo’s article on federal gun prohibition.  The article discusses the many federal prohibition on gun ownership that remain after the landmark Supreme Court decision of  D.C. v. Heller.


Mr. Ngo writes, “…Heller was a significant decision in its broad proclamation that there is an individual component to the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms. However, Heller did not abolish “longstanding” and “presumptively lawful” gun restrictions. Federal law still prohibits about a dozen categories of individuals from gun possession.”


Mr. Ngo’s article, entitled The Federal Gun Possession Ban and the Limited Options to Restore, Four Years After Heller, appeared in the Fall 2012 edition of the the Young Lawyer Newsletter.  He has handled hundreds of firearm related cases for Higbee & Associates.  The full article can be read here.
