+1 could not have said it better myself.This is going to be the Roe vs. Wade for the 2nd Amendment.
I believe that the 14th, 2nd, and 9th Amendments will uphold our rights as gun owners. Here is a statement from a former Supreme Court judge regarding the 9th Amendment's powers.
"[T]he Framers did not intend that the first eight amendments be construed to exhaust the basic and fundamental rights.... I do not mean to imply that the .... Ninth Amendment constitutes an independent source of rights protected from infringement by either the States or the Federal Government....While the Ninth Amendment - and indeed the entire Bill of Rights - originally concerned restrictions upon federal power, the subsequently enacted Fourteenth Amendment prohibits the States as well from abridging fundamental personal liberties. And, the Ninth Amendment, in indicating that not all such liberties are specifically mentioned in the first eight amendments, is surely relevant in showing the existence of other fundamental personal rights, now protected from state, as well as federal, infringement."
This is the 2nd Amendment:
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
This is the 9th Amendment:
"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
This is the 14th Amendment:
"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States"
If this is not ruled in our favor then the Supreme Court should be hung for treason, and all that approved it in Congress should already have been sacked for the blaspheme against the Law of the Land.
I believe that in many other SC decisions, the term "the people" was construed to mean an individual. If that is the case, then we are in great shape from that angle. I think the Justices have their minds made up. We won't get everything, but it is a start.
