Sig, It wasn't an argument. It was an apology for a confusing post with a big typo. If you can't accept that then perhaps you should go find a member of the debate team to tussle with. That said, I do hope that when the next case on point goes up that the Court expands on Heller instead of reversing parts of it, but I won't be surprised if they change the definitions of things like "arms" that matter to gun owners. Peace, DarrinD

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.
