    For those that support the second amendment, or those who are anti-gun. This is the super bowl.

    As far as I know the Supreme Court hasn't decided if they are going to take it yet..

    Yes, I think NBC is jumping the gun on that one a bit. As far as I know, we expect to hear whether SCOTUS will take up Heller by mid November.

    Watching SCOTUS legal proceedings is like watching glacier movements before global warming. :D

    Correct. A case being on the docket is no guarantee that a court has any intention of hearing it. It merely means that they can consider it, if there is time/interest/reason enough to.

    My bet, they let the ruling stand as is. That's my hope, too. The nudge would be enough to keep momentum moving.

    Looking at the Appelate brief and Gura's response, I don't see how the SCOTUS can rule any other way than to agree with the circuit-court ruling. That would set up legal precedent and allow the ripples to spread out nationwide.

    Otherwise, Heller could be viewed by many as a strictly local matter. The question at issue is whether or not the 2A guarantees individual firearms ownership. If Hillary gets elected, we really need this to go to the highest court.

    I'm doing my level best to appeal to THE highest court regarding the upcoming above matter on at least a daily basis.
