    Supreme Court set to announce decision for DC v Heller

    Just recieved this Info from Buckeye Firearms Association----Thought I would share it.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled to release their decision on the Washington D.C. gun ban case on Thursday, June 26, 2008.

    This will be a historic decision which will shape gun policy in America for decades.

    We will post information as soon as possible, including a complete analysis of the decision and how each Justice voted.

    Visit this Web site on Thursday and keep checking back for continuing updates as this story develops.

    pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for,
    protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend
    our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it
    was once like in the United States where men were free." -- Ronald Reagan

    I am hoping for the best but with half of the court a bunch of left wing socialists I am very apprehensive.

    It is looking a little ifey.

  5. I just read the transcript of the oral arguments this morning, and it will be interested to see the outcome. You could tell based on the questions some of the justice's asked where they stand on the issue.

    If the vote today on the death penalty for child rape is any indication of how out of touch with anything right of center they are we may be in trouble.

    Kennedy is the only justice whose vote I am not able to predict. As for the others, Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, and Alito will vote to overturn the ban and Stevens, Breyer, Souter, and Bader-Ginsberg will vote to uphold it. If only I could read the mind of Kennedy... Oh well. Hope all goes well.

    Unfortunately, the vote that called the death penalty for child rapists unconstitutional today, was a 5 to 4 vote, which is I fear the same we should expect for the D.C. vs Heller. Just can't predict which side it will land on.

    My prediction is that the individual nature of the 2nd amendment will be resolved and set in stone for all time. And I predict the win will be by a margin of 7-3 or better. I've even ordered a USP Compact 9mm to celebrate. =)
    Truth is mighty and will prevail. There is nothing the matter with this, except that it ain't so.

  10. Here's my prediction....

    1) A very weak and somewhat ambiguous statement that the 2nd ammendment applies to the citizens with so many caveats and subtleties, that it is useless and doesn't nearly approach the hint of being a final declaration.

    2) On the very issue of the gun ban itself, we will lose. The justices will rule that while the right to bear arms loosely applies to individuals that reasonable restrictions are appropriate. I believe they will point to the truly reasonable restriction (IMHO) of a background check for criminal and/or mental histories. They will deliver an opinion that does nothing but set the stage for more rulings on similar cases in the future. I think they will believe that the long term law that results from a body of 2nd ammendment cases in front of the SCOTUS will make up the law.

    Sorry, I look for no clear declaration of our 2nd ammendment rights applying to individuals (not enough to put it to bed anyhow) and almost no decision at all on this case.

  11. What exactly will be a victory? Speculation at this point is that since Scalia is the only justice without a majority opinion on this March sitting court, that this could be his baby to right for the majority.

    It would seem that Kennedy from his questioning might lean to the right, however, with restriction.

    I think we are looking at a decidsion that will be both victory and defeat. I believe that they will favor the right of citizens to keep and bear arms to include handguns, but will allow for restrictions on who can and how they obtain them.
