Guns: Supreme Court grants cert in Heller v. D.C.
This is big, probably the biggest news for gun rights in, oh, I don't know, seventy years. The Supreme Court has accepted the D.C. gun ban case - oral arguments begin in the spring.
The actual decision won't come until summer 2008. Whichever way it goes, expect a whole lot of handwringing (actually, I wouldn't be surprised if they don't even get a majority opinion - wouldn't that be frustrating?). And the outcome of the 2008 election may very well be affected by how the court rules.
