    Supreme Court Schedules Major Gun Rights Case

    Oral arguments in the lawsuit, McDonald v. City of Chicago, will be held on the morning of March 2, 2010. A decision is expected by late June or early July.
    Like the DC handgun ban this is a case everyone should have a close eye on.

    Re: Supreme Court Schedules Major Gun Rights Case

    I would have thought the DC decision would apply here as well, I guess there must be major differences in the two cases?

    I guess reading the article would have been helpful....

    "Some background: the Second Amendment, of course, says that Americans' right to "keep and bear arms" shall not be infringed. Last year's decision in D.C. v. Heller applied that prohibition only to the federal government and federal enclaves like Washington, D.C., but left open the question of "incorporation" -- that is, what state laws were permissible or not. "

    The Supreme Court is notorious for taking baby steps. Job security, I guess

    Well that is always a double edge sword, make too broad a decision, and risk setting a precedent we will never be able challenge in the future.

    Sometimes it's necessary; like Roe v Wade.

    I am pro-choice, but I do have problems with Roe v Wade, but that is a thread all on its own.

    You know, just when I think I find it hard to find some good things President Bush did while in office, a case like this comes up to show that Bush actually did at least a couple of things right, such as his appointments for Supreme Court Justices.

    Incorporation is long overdue for the 2nd. Let's hope it goes that way.
