    Everybody has heard about this by now, right?

    I'm being optimistic - DC Gun ban Overturned by 5-4. 9-0 would be great, but I have a feeling that some members of the court just cannot go along with the other 5.

    Right on! Very exciting news. I was reading this on my local news. With 44 states having state constitutions providing gun rights and upholding 2A, a positive Supreme Court decision will either strengthen gun rights across the country or have little immediate impact in those 44 states. Though if we get a bad vote, NRA has some work to do making sure those 44 states don't start getting unhealthy ideas.

    i think 7-2 or maybe 8-1 is possible. the wording of the amendment is pretty clear, and the case at hand is very narrowly focused.

    I am also hopeful of a 7-2 decision as well (I think an 8-1 decision might be pushing it a bit).

    2nd Amendment........Use it.........Or, lose it!!:X
    The 2nd Amendment... brought to you by Beretta and the number 1791!!
