    I listened/watched to the oral arguments and media spin control after the arguments on C-Span.

    Have to say I'm optimistic. Most of the justices were inquring about various "what ifs" questions, most of them assuming that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right.

    However, I was not pleased how Heller's lawyer, Gura, pretty much threw MG ownership under the bus.

    So, I'm thinking it might go 5-4 towards individual rights but with "reasonable restrictions" being constitutional.

    "Reasonable restrictions" would include such thing as firearm prohibition for felons, firearm registration, gun locks, "gun safe zones" (ie. schools), machinegun ban, etc.

    Keep in mind, even if DC v Heller comes out a win for individual righs, it still a small step in a long road to get where we want to be.
