I think the Heller 5 will stick to heightened scrutiny, and potential public-safety BS will be left for the other 4 hand-wringers.

In any event, the best science currently suggests carry is of net benefit to society, so even if the other 4 were going to go with rational basis (which they're not, they're intellectually dishonest about the RKBA issue), they should vote in favor of carry.
