Court Upholds Heller

The Supreme Court has ruled in Heller, from the Syllabus:
The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditional lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

Today is a good day for the Bill of Rights.

The Heller opinion is a beefy 157 pages (compared to the 37 page Davis decision).

Lots of analysis will be present all day.
