Interview excerpt below:
Wallace asked Scalia how this applies to the right to bear arms. Scalia said there are undoubtedly some limits to the Second Amendment because, “What the opinion in Heller said is that it will have to be decided in future cases what limitations upon the right to keep and bear arms are permissible.”
Scalia said “we’ll see” what those limitations are as it applies to modern weapons. He continued, “Obviously the amendment does not apply to weapons that can be hand carried, it’s to keep and bear. So it doesn’t apply to cannons, but I suppose there are handheld rocket launchers that can bring down airplanes that will have to be – it will have to be decided.”
