District of Columbia v. Heller

Well, another session of SCOTUS goes by today, but no news of the Second Amendment. We learned of the Supreme Court's ruling regarding the detainees at Gitmo, but not about DC v. Heller. Pity.

I think it's ironic that enemy combatants are enjoying Habeas Corpus, much like U.S. citizens, yet we sit here and wait to hear whether they'll affirm rights we were given over 200 years ago.

Nonetheless, I'm cautiously optimistic that the 2nd Amendment will be affirmed, and that an individual right to keep and bear arms will finally have the endorsement of constitutionality via the Supreme Court. Perhaps Monday, June 16, 2008 will be a very good day.
