McDonald v. Chicago - WE WON!

SCOTUS just released their opinion in McDonald v. Chicago, which challenged Chicago's handgun ban.  The court held that the Second Amendment DOES apply to the states, based on the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment.

As expected the decision was 5 to 4.

Full text of the decision is here:

I haven't yet read the entire decision, and will offer more comments after having done so.
