Supreme Court hears McDonald v. Chicago today: Don't expect too much

More fundamentally, though, even a "victory" for gun rights could potentially merely provide the blueprint for infringing on that which shall not be infringed, without running afoul of the Supreme Court's interpretation of the Second Amendment. Even after Heller, after all, Washington D.C.'s gun laws impose virtually every imaginable restriction short of a ban, and by virtue of the ruling's vagueness on the extent of Second Amendment protection for the right to keep and bear arms, there is, as yet, no prohibition on such draconian restrictions. The forcible citizen disarmament lobby is, in fact, arguing that Heller is an endorsement of those restrictions. That is a battle that remains to be fought. [More]
