    More from SCOTUSblog, Privileges or Immunities Clause alive again McDonald debate,

    http://www.scotusblog.com/2010/06/pr...e-alive-again/

    [Excerpt]The crucial fifth vote was provided by Justice Thomas’ extensive fifty-six-page originalist opinion that rested solely on the Privileges or Immunities Clause. Neither Justice Alito for the plurality, nor Justices Stevens or Breyer in dissent, even attempted to impeach Justice Thomas’ analysis, which now stands uncontradicted in the Supreme Court Reports.

    Randy Barnett is a professor at Georgetown Law Center, and filed an amicus brief in favor of the petitioner in McDonald v. Chicago.

    The fact that Thomas's P&I argument stands uncontested in this ruling bodes VERY well for cases against states like MD, with regards to P&I-based cases there with regards to CC reciprocity, and perhaps even with regards to "equal protection" arguments...
