    Should the SCotUS take this up, it will certainly become THE landmark case regarding the 2nd amendment.

    The anti-gun side must be terrified at this.

    Keep in mind that DC's crime more than doubled...134 percent increase when stringent gun control laws were put in place the first time. Maybe people are catching on.

    "A review of the areas in the U.S. with the most restrictive firearm laws, including such areas as Washington, D.C., Chicago, IL, New York, NY, and the state of California, shows that these areas have some of the highest crime (especially violent) crime rates in the U.S. The crime rates in all of these areas exceeds the national average and they all have enacted in-depth restrictions on firearm ownership that includes licensing and registration schemes, various taxes, testing, and even bans on firearms. In essence, these areas have become a gun control supporters Utopia."
