Bush is no Reagan, but you have to give him credit for appointing some outstanding judges.

The alphabet networks (with the sole exception of NBC) totally ignored this important story.

Shouldn't say "Conservative Win". Should say "Americans Win".

The Amendment does not protect the right of militiamen to keep and bear arms, but, rather the right of the people. The operative clause, properly read, protects the ownership and use of weaponry beyond that needed to preserve the state militias. Again, we point out that if the competent drafters of the Second Amendment had meant the right to be limited to the protection of state militias, it is hard to imagine that they would have chosen the language they did. We therefore take it as an expression of the drafters view that the people possessed a natural right to keep and bear arms, and that the preservation of the militia was the rights most salient political benefitand thus the most appropriate to express in a political document.
Shout this from the rooftops!

Another delightful point of the majority opinion was to observe, and thus raise the point on appeal, that the Second has never been given the respect of Incorporation by rulings about the Fourteenth.
As I read the opinion, I was ticking off all the legal points about the Second that I could think of. This opinion covered them all. Incorporation was one that had not been on my list, until now.
