Supreme Court Affirms Heller – There is an Individual Right

Normally, this site does not cover breaking news, but for the DC v Heller case, we’re making an editorial decision to post information as soon as it is released. We’ll provide the full PDF of the decision – and the dissenting opinion if there is one – here on the site.

SCOTUSblog has the Cover it Live feed going right now. Best bet might be to click here to catch it.

9:58 a.m. Three opinions set for today, and Heller will not be first. We should know the decision right away, but the particulars will take a few minutes.
10:05 a.m. Per SCOTUSblog, Heller will be last.
10:12 a.m. Heller affirmed. Vote was 5-4, Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm.

As we wait for the actual opinion in PDF format, one comment. I expected 6-3 or even 7-2, but 5-4 really bugs me.

Opinion is here – this is a link on the site just in case other news sites are overwhelmed. It is 157 pages.
