DC SUPREME COURT CASE
« on: November 21, 2007, 08:11:40 AM »

Many of you may know about the restrictive gun laws in DC-no handguns, not even in your home.  The Court of Appeals has struck down that law as being too restrictive, so the city has taken it to the Supreme Court, which has just agreed to hear the case.  Keep your eye on this case.  It will be the biggest 2nd Ammendment ruling since 1939.

This is a huge case. One of the biggest that SCOTUS has taken on in many years, and it's outcome will affect us all. I think for the first time in many years, we actually stand a very good chance of SCOTUS affirming that the RKBA is an individual right, though I look for it to be a very close vote, probably a 5-4 decision. If it goes the other way, then everyone with a CCW permit will be affected in a negative way.

SCOTUS will start hearing arguments tomorrow on this case.  Although the case is specifically about our gun laws, there's a lot of talk of them issuing a broad ruling not based on any precedents.   In other words, this case may define the 2nd Amendment and provide future precedents for gun laws around the country.
In the meantime, we're still enforcing the original law-no handguns, period.

This case has the potential to be a huge step forward for legal gun owners, but could also be a step backwards depending upon how Anthony Kennedy rules. He is regarded as the swing vote on the issue, and if he goes against gun owners, it could be the death knell for our side.
