Supreme Court and D.C. Gun Ban

While I was on vacation, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) agreed to hear the appeal of the D.C. Circuit Court's decision overturning D.C.'s handgun ban. It was widely expected that this decision would not be announced until after Thanksgiving but the Court announced the decision to hear the case on Tuesday - two days before the holiday. Over the holiday weekend, a number of OP/EDs were published - many supporting the individual rights interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. Some of the best were in the Wall Street Journal. In the event you have not seen them, I am providing the links to the public articles (some can only be accessed by subscribers).
