DC vs Heller. 5-4 Heller

Supreme court rules in favor of Heller 5-4 with Scalia writing the majority opinion.


1. The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

This is a great day for the United States and the Constitution. A 6-3 or 7-2 decision would have been much better but at least it wasn't 5-4 for DC

Here is the decision...all 157 pages of it
