A US appeals court has ruled that military-style assault weapons are not protected under the US Constitution, dealing a blow to gun rights activists.

In a 10-4 ruling, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, said the 45 assault weapons banned under Maryland’s law are not protected by the Second Amendment.

‘Put simply, we have no power to extend Second Amendment protection to the weapons of war,’ wrote Judge Robert King, adding that the Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller explicitly excluded such coverage.

While the Second Amendment guarantees Americans the right to bear arms, legal battles have raged for years over what the guarantee includes.

The ruling upheld a law from Maryland, which bans 45 different kinds of assault weapons and sets the limit on gun magazines to 10 rounds.

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, who led the push for the law in 2013 as a state senator, said it’s ‘unthinkable that these weapons of war, weapons that caused the carnage in Newtown and in other communities across the country, would be protected by the Second Amendment.’

‘It’s a very strong opinion, and it has national significance, both because it’s en-banc and for the strength of its decision,’ Frosh said, noting that all of the court’s judges participated.
