Kind of amazing.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

Given the widening split between the circuits (Peruta, 9th etc), it seems like the Supremes will almost have to take another 2nd Amendment case. It would sure be nice if RBG keels over before that happens.

Further proof that Heller was not the end.
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

It was a beginning. That decision is what allowed all of this. Otherwise the states ability to regulate arms would be thought of as absolute and we would be fighting uphill. Also remember that this is not going to be like the gay marriage decision where we get one victory and that's all we need. There are so many facets to this, (magazine capacity, concealed carry, "assault weapons") each requiring its own set of laws and court fights to examine.

IOW, Heller was somewhat like Midway. We still have our fights ahead, maybe our Iron Bottom Bays and kamikaze attacks to get through, but the opposition is now on the defensive.

What he said, assuming we keep up the pressure and don't become limousine conservatives and Fudd RKBA people.

You guys are more optimistic than I can allow myself to be on this. The supremes have been dodging this issue so steadfastly it's hard to see them doing anything of consequence.

They're dodging because nobody knows which way Kennedy would jump. Once he retires and is replaced, I think things will develop quickly.

I was thinking instead of Midway, Heller was whatever the first case the NAACP won after Plessey v Ferguson, part of the long march to whatever will be the Second Amendment's Brown v Board of Education, which will be Constitutional carry in all fifty states (and territories).
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .
