Here's the big one everybody has been waiting for:
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Washington D.C.'s sweeping ban on handguns is unconstitutional.
The justices voted 5-4 against the ban with Justice Antonin Scalia writing the opinion for the majority.
At issue in District of Columbia v. Heller was whether the city's ban violated the Second Amendment right to "keep and bear arms" by preventing individuals -- as opposed to state militias -- from having guns in their homes.
The court merely confirmed what many of us believed: that the Second Amendment protects an individual -- not collective -- right to bear arms. I wish this would stop liberals -- who normally make the Constitution up as they go along -- from continuing to disingenously invoke the Framer's "intent" in this one case, but I won't count on it.
UPDATE: Here's the text of Justice Antonin Scalia's majority opinion pdf file). The vote was 5-4. Guess who was on which side? Yeah, the ususal.
