This is an excellent analysis that elucidates quite nicely some of the finer points of this latest SCOTUS decision. It's a bit wonkish, but well worth the read.

All is for naught if we lose a conservative justice during Obama’s term. All is won if we don’t lose a conservative justice and elect a conservative President and Senate.

Well, we had massive resistance to integration. Now we’ll have massive resistance to Second Amendment rights. But it will fade eventually.

"... On balance, I agree with scholars such as co-blogger Eugene Volokh and Jack Balkin who argue that McDonald will have only a limited practical effect... [...] a wide range of other firearms regulations should be perfectly legal."

Really? I have a feeling that 18 U.S.C. § 922(o) and 922(r) couldn't survive a court case.

This is the 'Sporting Purposes' section of Title XVIII in the US Code of Justice brought in by the 1968 Gun Control Act.

After McDonald's RKBA incorporation under the 14th Amendment's Due Process clause, how can any individual civil right related to firearms be mitigated by or reconciled with it's suitability for duck hunting?

Give it a few more years and some careful strategy backed up with a goodly amount of partisan funding to bring the case forward and much of the 1968 GCA and the Hughes Amendment to 1986 FOPA is as dead as fried chicken dinner.

Knock those laws on their asses and the job of BATFE Field Agent will be about as exciting a career as Dept. of Agriculture's "Grain Silo Meter Tare Weight Calibration and Certification Technician I"
