United States v. Emerson, 270 F.3d 203 (5th Cir. 2001), was a lengthy and scholarly decision by the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit that affirmed that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms. It rejected the view that this amendment protects only a collective right to bear arms, as in a militia having firearms.
