Looks like it perserves most restrictions...when will they start to license speech?

n further reading, the decision is somewhat bipolar. On one hand it says that an entire class of weapons cannot be banned and then it says that modern weapons are protected by the 2A and then it goes on to say that since machine guns are not “typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes” or “in common use” they CAN be banned.
They have tried to walk a tightrope and failed. Can the government outlaw a gun because it is not “in common use” when the reason it is not “in common use” because the government has outlawed it? A liberal reading of the decision could say that ALL new model firearms, not being "in common use at the time" can be banned.
