(stating that the inherent right of self-defense has been central to the Second Amendment right). McDonald v. City of Chicago, Ill., 130 S. Ct. 3020 (2010)Explaining that the need for defense of self, family, and property is most acute in the home, we found that this right applies to handguns because they are the most preferred firearm in the nation to keep and use for protection of ones home and family, (noting that handguns are overwhelmingly chosen by American society for [the] lawful purpose of self-defense)- ([T]he American people have considered the handgun to be the quintessential self-defense weapon).

Thus, we concluded, citizens must be permitted to use [handguns] for the core lawful purpose of self-defense. (citations omitted) McDonald v. City of Chicago, Ill., ibid.THIS CASEBOOK contains a selection of seven U. S. Supreme Court decisions that analyze and interpret the provisions of the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.
