Atkins is part of a seven-partner consortium who are developing a digital platform that is setting out to improve the rail travel experience for disabled passengers in the UK. TOC Ability aims to enhance passenger experience and has the potential to transform the experience of those users that need it most.
But the developing legal regime has yet to account for one potentially significant set of lines: In rural areas, gun crime and gun control are relatively rare, and gun culture is strong. In cities, by contrast, rates of violent gun crime are comparatively high, and opportunities for recreational gun use are scarce.
And from colonial Boston to nineteenth-century Tombstone to contemporary New York City, guns have consistently been regulated more heavily in cities—a degree of geographic variation that is hard to find with regard to any other constitutional right.
This Article argues that Second Amendment doctrine and state preemption laws can and should incorporate these longstanding and sensible differences between urban and rural gun use and regulation. Doing so would present new possibilities for the stalled debate on gun control, protect rural gun culture while permitting cities to address urban gun violence, and preserve the longstanding American tradition of firearm localism.
Associate Professor, Duke Law School. Research Professorship of the Charles A. Cannon Charitable Trust No. Errors are of course my own. Introduction The image of hardy, frontier-dwelling Americans defending themselves and their families with guns has long captured the imaginations of the public, scholars, commentators, and at least one very important vote on the Supreme Court.
The legal reality, however, was more complicated. Nineteenth-century visitors to supposed gun havens like Dodge City, Kansas, and Tombstone, Arizona, could not lawfully bring their firearms past the city limits. The not-so-wild West is representative in this regard.
In the Founding era, many cities—Philadelphia, New York, and Boston prominent among them—regulated or prohibited the firing of weapons and storage of gunpowder within city limits, 8 even while the possession and use of guns and gunpowder were permitted in rural areas.
That geographic tailoring has remained largely consistent in the two centuries since, and it is no accident that District of Columbia v. Heller 9 and McDonald v. City of Chicago 10 both involved municipal gun regulation. This Article argues that future Second Amendment cases can and should incorporate the longstanding and sensible differences regarding guns and gun control in rural and urban areas, giving more protection to gun rights in rural areas and more leeway to gun regulation in cities.
The Ohio State University We assessed the appeal of reality TV by asking adults to rate themselves on each of 16 basic motives using the Reiss Profile standardized instrument and to rate how much they watched and enjoyed various reality television shows.

Part I describes the significant differences between urban and rural areas with regard to the prevalence, regulation, perceived importance, use, and misuse of guns. Violent gun crime and support for gun control are heavily concentrated in cities, while opposition to gun control is strongest in rural areas, where the costs of gun crime are lowest.
Rural residents are far more likely to own firearms than people living in cities, and have more opportunities to use them for lawful activities like hunting and recreational shooting.
This is unfortunate and unnecessary, because Second Amendment doctrine already contains the tools with which to achieve geographic tailoring. To be sure, the historical record is neither complete nor uniform.
But it appears to be at least as persuasive as the evidence supporting other Second Amendment rules specifically approved by the Court in Heller—the ban on felons in possession, for example. Some constitutional rights are already locally tailored, 26 and a growing number of scholars have explored and celebrated the role of localism in constitutional law.
But the broader case for constitutional localism confirmsthat this would not mean treating the Second Amendment as some kind of second-class right. B shows how localism arguments would impact not only federal constitutional doctrine, but also state law. Over the past few decades, most states—acting largely in response to local-level handgun bans 29 —have passed laws forbidding or simply limiting municipal gun control.
But many of the arguments for Second Amendment localism also suggest that broad preemption laws are an undesirable break from historical practice. Especially in the wake of Heller and McDonald, which constitutionally guarantee the rights that preemption laws purport to protect, the laws themselves can and should be modified or repealed.
Of course, there are various objections, some of them quite strong, to the idea of firearm localism. One might argue that increased deference to urban gun control would undermine the self-defense rights of people living in high-crime inner cities.
Or perhaps instead of achieving too much, firearm localism would be crippled from the start by the practical difficulty of defining urban and rural areas.(c)none of the commercial television broadcasting services provided under the licence passes the shared content test in relation to any of the commercial television broadcasting services provided under another commercial television broadcasting licence, where more than 50% of the licence area population of the first radio licence area is.
