SCOTUSBlog has a snazzy liveblog thing going on that updates quickly and doesn’t require you to repeatedly refresh your browser. C’mon over, it’s less annoying than the tv talking heads.
Update: Tom Goldstein is a funny guy. “Tom Goldstein – The Morgan Stanley opinion holds that FERC was required to apply the Mobile Sierra presumption. There, everyone knows what they came here to find out.”
Heller has been affirmed, and the court says there is indeed an individual right to a firearm. This is pretty big for everyone in the country, not just D.C. – it potentially will impact all kinds of gun regulations, not just overt bans.
Don’t strap on your six-shooter just yet, Marion Barry – there’s a lot of Monday-morning quarterbacking to be done over the actual opinion first.
Update 2: Don’t forget that as official materials come in – i.e., the actual written opinion from the court – they’ll be linked here, on the SCOTUSWiki page for D.C. v Heller.
Update 3: Here’s the opinion. [pdf]
