McDonald Case Prediction

Today or this coming Monday, SCOTUS will rule against Chicago.

I predict that the ruling will be so convoluted, so shameless in the attempt to both strike down Chicago's laws, while preserving the worst aspects of NFA34, GCA68 and FOPA86, that the follow-on litigation will carry on for years.

Actually striking a clear blow for Liberty seems to be beyond the realm of the possible for the Roberts Court. I hope I am wrong. I hope that the ruling will be as clear and concise as the wording of the 2nd Amendment.

Reasonable restrictions? Fuck that. What part of "Shall not be infringed" is hard to understand?
