Okay, I’ll bet you five cyber-bucks it’s overturned.... we’ll see what happens.

Kennedy is the swing vote and he has not always been 100% reliable. I predicted after Heller that pushing Kennedy could result in massive restrictions on the Second Amendment.

I'll see your five cyber-bucks.

Thanks for bringing up Kennedy. I might have agreed with you before his opinion in Citizens United, which stuck down much of McCain-Finegold, but do not now, for an entirely extra-judicial reason. When Obama and the other DemonRats staged their petulantaly adolescent deomnstration at the SOTU speech, they directly and especially aimed it at Kennedy, who wrote the Court's opinion in Citizens United. It's almost sure that the Illegal will want to see Urbina's opinioni sustained. Hence, it's just about eqaually sure that Kennedy and the other four justices who were in the Heller majority will want to slap him down.

-- Kennedy is the swing vote ... --

The case has to make it through the Circuit first, before a petition for cert. can even be filed.
