    CNMI's Handgun Ban Unconstitutional [/paste:font]


    U.S. District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona has declared unconstitutional the CNMI Weapons Control Act that prohibits all residents from obtaining handguns for self-defense purposes.

    Manglona ruled that the handgun and handgun ammunition ban contained in the CNMI Weapons Control Act is declared unconstitutional and in violation of the Covenant that incorporated Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    Manglona said the implied prohibition on issuing weapons identification cards (WIC) for self-defense, or “family defense” as stated on the WIC application, is declared unconstitutional and in violation of the Covenant that incorporated the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
