An Individual Right

Obviously the big news of the day is that the Supreme Court has affirmed an individual right to own a gun under the Second Amendment. That’s all for now, because I’ll be spending the next few hours reading the opinion. Volokh Conspiracy already has some interesting analysis of the decision; a major issue seems to be Fourteenth Amendment incorporation. Eugene Volokh writes, “The majority doesn’t clearly signal its view on the question, but it does suggest that simply citing some late 1800s cases which rejected incorporation (at a time when incorporation was generally being rejected as to nearly all of the Bill of Rights) will not suffice.”
