Abstract

The Supreme Court cannot overturn Heller without overturning Obergefell. The Court ruled as fundamental both the right of an individual to own & possess arms and the right of an individual to marry a person of the same sex. However, Heller's holding is based on a longer history and a stronger foundation than Obergefell's holding.

Keywords: Heller, Obergefell, Second Amentment
