    When you find out, let me know..
    Maybe this has already been posted, but it looks
    like the Supreme Court and already given a break
    to the anti-gunner's side in the Heller case..>

    It's the federal gov't being given time to comment on the impact any ruling will have on other laws.

    The SG's brief was hardly friendly to DC, essentially asking SCOTUS to find some way to uphold tossing DC's ban while maintaining other federal bans (not that the SG had the slightest viable suggestion how this may be done).

    Irrelevant! If the right is declared individual, those laws should stand or hopefully fall on their own!

    True enough.

    What I read of the SG's brief sounded akin to:

    "Well, we have to agree that racial discrimination in schools is unconstitutional, morally wrong, and generally repugnant. Those who support it have no good argument.

    "However, like, dude. Dude. DUDE! Like, if you rule the only way that makes sense here, we'll have to, like, let the Negroes go to school with our nice little white kids. I mean, years of segregation have worked great for us, and it's a lot easier for the cops, too, since they can just arrest any black kid they see going to the white school. What will we do?!?

    "Can't you smart boys (and girl) up there figger out some way to rule that segregation is illegal, but without making us let the Negroes into our SCHOOLS, for chrissakes? Like, DUDE!"

    BTW this is being discussed here: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=343001

    Quite possibly the best summation of the SG brief i have seen to date thanks for the comic relief on the issue .
