I just listened to the entire 1 hour and 37 minutes of these oral arguments. I would recommend that others do the same. It's a rare window into a basic tenet of our freedoms that's rarely viewed by the public.

My take . . . in connotation that "for" means supporting the vew we have that the DC ban is unconstitutional . . .

Roberts - Passionately for
Scalia - Passionately for
Kennedy - For
Alito - For
Ginsberg: Passionately against
Souter - Against
Stevens: Against
Breyer: Passionately against

That leaves the "silent justice"* Clarence Thomas being the decider. I think (hope) he will sway in our direction. [ * Justice Thomas does not ask questions in oral arguments as a matter of personal policy.]

If you ever hated the Clinton's, just listen to Ginsburg and Breyer. I am embarassed as an American to have these two pieces of dung sitting on our highest court. Souter on the other hand is becoming more and more a glaring failure in presidential judgment in his nomination.
