SCOTUS just ruled 2A protects individual right to own firearms. Now we just get to wait and see how far they went and what the consequences are. Either way the decision is good for all gun owners.

It seems to me that this could be taken to it's own level of abuse, though the ruling states that Heller must not be disqualified. First of all, I think it's WAY over the line to require a license for self defense with a handgun, let alone S.D. in the home. Secondly, who's to say that D.C. won't simply jack up the price on permits so that it becomes a burden on the general public? This is a bit concerning to me, and I think it could stand out in days, weeks, and years to come. Otherwise, so far the reading is pretty good.SCOTUS said:Because Heller conceded at oral argument that the D. C. licensing law is permissible if it is not enforced arbitrarily and capriciously, the Court assumes that a license will satisfy his prayer for relief and does not address the licensing requirement. Assuming he is not disqualified from exercising Second Amendment rights, the District must permit Heller to register his handgun and must issue him a license to carry it in the home.
