Why Yesterday's Decision in Peruta V. San Diego is Important

National Review's Jim Geraghty has a piece this morning that goes to the heart of yesterday's decision with some help from the Cato Institute's Walter Olson.  After sharing some of Olson's analysis, Geraghty notes:
We’ve had a generation or two of lawmakers – at first in both parties, then increasingly concentrated in the Democratic Party – who believed that the Second Amendment was optional. Increasingly, courts are informing them otherwise.
And it is interesting to note that the two judges on the side of gun owners are Clinton appointees.  If judges on the infamous 9th Circuit get this, how long before other circuits who have ruled against gun owners on the same issue of carrying outside the home will come around to this way of thinking? Heller figured prominently in the decision released yesterday.  California Second Amendment attorney Chuck Michel also talked about the importance of the case with Cam Edwards on NRANews' Cam and Company yesterday.
