Chief Justice Roberts has announced tomorrow will be the last day of the Supreme Court term. And it’s gonna be a doozy:
In eagerly awaited rulings, the nation’s highest court is expected to decide the constitutionality of a national board that polices auditors of public companies…
…AKA “Sarbanes Oxley”, itself a huge issue…
…and whether gun rights extend to every state and city in the nation.

I predict that Justice Alito will write the Court’s opinion in McDonald recognizing that the Second Amendment is incorporated. But given Justice Alito’s sensitivity towards law enforcement, I doubt that the opinion will call into question a broad swath of firearms regulation.
That’s as it should be, frustrating as it may be in the short run; the case should set the stage for a huge legislative effort to overturn fascist gun-control laws. And if all goes well tomorrow, it’ll give Real America the constitutional tools it needs to exactly that.
I will, to say the least, be watching, and writing on the McDonald decision at my earliest opportunity.
