    Appeals Court Calls a Stop-and-Frisk Illegal

    A state appellate court ruled on Tuesday that a New York City police officer who found a concealed handgun on a 14-year-old in the Bronx during a stop-and-frisk encounter in 2010 did not have sufficient cause to search him, and reversed his conviction.

    In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two Second Amendment decisions. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia[1][2] and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In dicta, the Court listed many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession as being consistent with the Second Amendment.[3] In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.[4]
    A fourteen year old seldom has an traditionally lawful purposes for a handgun, and if a cop felt the need to stop and frisk him I can't imagine he was some little angel getting picked on.
