D.C. v. Heller

To whomever reads this blog, tomorrow will bring oral arguments in the now somewhat infamous D.C. guns case. This is, of course, a 2nd Amendment case: the District of Columbia banned private possession of handguns, but still allowed possession of shotguns and rifles. Respondent argues that this violated the 2nd Amendment's guarantee of a right to bear arms.
The humble directors and contributors of this here blog urge our underwhelming readership to follow coverage of the case throughout the day. However, for those of you who do not, we will be posting in this cyberspace a summary of the day's events after the dust settles.
For those of you who are interested in beat-by-beat coverage, SCOTUSblog appears to be providing a streaming "LiveBlog."
