    The majority opinion sounds right to me. What seems to be the problem or are you waiting for further cut and paste instructions from Soro's tax exempt (thank you John McCain) propaganda sources?

    What of the minority opinions, their arguments and reasoning?

    The Heller ruling is somewhat unique in its relative lack of cited case law and precedent; ‘gun rights’ didn’t become an issue until the second half of the 20th Century, when ‘gun control’ measures were enacted during the 60s, a consequence of assassinations of political figures and the popular perception of increasing gun violence.

    The bulk of Scalia’s opinion is predicated on primary documents and sources, such as state constitutions after the Foundation Era, English common law, and an ‘understanding at the time’ by the people of the Founding Generation when the Second Amendment was ratified.

    The Heller Majority thus composed a compelling and convincing argument for an individual right, and the minority opinion did the same with regard to a collective right, using much of the same documentation.

    The political irony, of course, is that Stevens’ dissent could be used by the far right as justification of the notion that the Second Amendment addresses the right of the people to war against a Federal government perceived ‘tyrannical’:

    The majority opinion, as we know, protects an individual right to posses a firearm, unconnected with militia service.
