The D.C. Gun Ban Is DOA 

Linda Greenhouse of the New York Times and other reporters count at least five votes by the Supreme Court Justices to overturn the D.C. law prohibiting individuals to own a handgun. The swing vote by Anthony Kennedy is clearly on the libertarian side:

The purpose of the first clause, with its militia reference, was simply to "reaffirm the right to have a militia," he said, while the second made clear that individuals had the right to own guns.
Can't wait until June when the decision will be announced.
