Well just finished reading enough of the decision to see that JD hit it on the head as usual . Raise a toast to a victory but don't go getting to excited over it all . With Presidential elections just around the corner don't forget what a fragile victory it was with a 5-4 decision . The only comfort one can find is the fact that even with a Democratic victory in November and even perhaps a November 4 years away is the fact that the most frail of the Supremes "Ginsberg" that might need replacing by an antigun President has already come down against us leaving the present majority intact , at least for the foreseeable future . The chink in Heller is what defines a "Dangerous and unusual weapon" and "Those in common use for lawful purposes" ? Do all semiautomatics get the protection of "in common use for a lawful purpose" , or just some ? What makes a weapon "Unusual" ? In the civilian world that can be defined as simple as a bayonet lug on a rifle or even a lanyard loop on a handgun . Certainly a multicolored weapon with todays modern "Paint jobs" on them can be seen as unusual . Will all of the Yellow and Pink guns be banned on this basis ? As far as "dangerous" goes it wouldn't be of much use for defense if it weren't dangerous now would it ? I'm afraid all this decision has done is paved the way for hundreds of more lawsuits with each only slightly less fuzzy than the last .
