[Cite as Burton v. Sills, 394 U.S. 812 (1969). Note: This decision concerns an appeal to a New Jersey gun licensing law. The Court did not deny certiorari but dismissed the appeal "for want of a federal question." Denying certiorari means nothing about the Court's position. A dismissed appeal carries some meaning about the Court's position. In this case the Court felt the Second Amendment did not apply to state gun licensing.]
