The usual cast of gunloons are jibber-jabbering away with excitement; they believe an overwhelmingly conservative SCOTUS is going to give them something that’s never existed: a constitutional right to a firearm.
To do this, the SCOTUS will have to overturn about 150 years of precedence and given Scalia, Thomas, Alito and Roberts are largely political hacks, it’s not a stretch to imagine them doing so.
Thus, I make several predictions:
1.) No matter what the result, gunloons will hail the decision as a victory greater than V-J and V-E Days.
2.) SCOTUS will produce a very mixed message; it will assert an individual right to firearms but will permit localities great latitude in regulation. This could mean the DC handgun ban stays in place.
3.) See (1); there will be a brave face put on this by gunloons–but they will be very, very unhappy.
