It is fair to observe that where the court has done something 10 times, it may end up doing it an 11th time. While there is no evidence that the court as composed at the time of the Heller decision would reverse that decision, it is unlikely that this composition will persist without end.

That does not diminish this scale of the victory in Heller; it just observes that no victory is permanent.
