    Justices appear skeptical over gun ban

    Let's keep our fingers crossed. While the correct outcome is obvious to us, you never know. This could be really bad if it does not go our way. It does seem to be looking good though.

    I intend to keep myself positive on this outcome.

    I doubt they're going to issue any kind of wide-ranging decision that answers all sorts of questions. They'll probably keep it very narrowly tailored to this specific situation, and include some language that alludes to the sort of cases they'd like to see in the future. SCOTUS generally does that to give lawyers and activists an idea of what they might be able to bring.

    Usually with constitutional issues like this, there's a few initial cases that sets the framework, and then they might issue a bigger decision later on that applies more generally. If either side is expecting a decisive win out of this, there's going to be a lot of disappointed people.

    I remember another

    obvious outcome. That was the first Evander Holyfield vs Lenex Louis fight in 1999. I am however cautiously optimistic. After it's over, I really hope they release the transcripts, or if it is recorded, the recordings of the justices as they deliberate.
    Cheers

    The positive

    I liked what the justices said about the right of the peple. That is us the bubbas. Not us the militia or us the cops. Nor is it us the gummint.
