The problem for libs is that we conservatives can actually read the second Ammendment.

It no longer matters what quota-justices decide from now on.

All it takes is the appointment of one new justice to shift the balance on this constitutional question.

This is absurd. There should be a limit on the number of times the SCOTUS can/will rule on any given subject.

We have been down this road umpteen times and the SCOTUS has usually ruled in favor of the Second Amendment. Gun-grabbers can (and have!) try to interpret the meaning of the Second Amendment in any of 1,000 different ways but the Founder's meaning is quite clear.

Unless the gun-grabbers speak a language other than American English, there is nothing for them to challenge in the Court.

When the SCOTUS relies on political leanings to determine the outcome of any given issue (as they have been doing for several decades!), then America is lost!! The Justices on the Supreme Court are supposed to be apolitical and render judements solely on a law's compliance with the Constitution.

We must restore the Court to an apolitical body that complies with the original words, vision and plans the Founders had for America! THAT'S their job!!

“A federal judge will first decide whether the District can outright ban any form of open or concealed carry. In 2008, attorney Alan Gura convinced the Supreme Court to force city officials to recognize the right to keep arms through the Heller v. District of Columbia case.”

The “District” is not a state, it belongs to the government or Congress. I don’t see how they can say a decision concerning DC has anything to do with the rest of us.
