I think that we are into next term already before anything will be heard; nothing (except death penalty appeals) happens fast in SCOTUS. My guess is that a slew of these cases will all come down at the same time (there a four that were argued this week in the Ninth Circuit),plus Woolard, all of which are carry outside the home, discretionary issue states that will allow the Court to expand,restrict, or toherwise further rule on the ramifications of Heller. The Court will do a "grant and hold" with most, and designating one of the cases as the lead case for all briefing and argument. Briefing not to be completed until at least the end of 2013, with argument in 2014. No telling how long before an opinion will issue--it theoretically could be several years--so a decision no earlier than two years from now.
