(H/T Snowflakes In Hell)

This has the potential to be the most significant court decision in regards to the 2nd Amendment.

Reading through…so far, my thoughts are “Roberts” is an intelligent man, never wager $ in a chess game with him.

Scalia hit with a thought I had myself “Let’s assume that the only reason it is there and the only purpose it serves is the militia purpose. Isn’t that militia purpose just as much defeated by allowing the States to take away the militia’s arms as it would be by allowing the Federal Government to take away the militia’s arms?”

Scalia hits it out of the park again… “See, the right to keep and bear arms is right there, it’s right there in the Bill of Rights. Where do you find the right to self-defense?  You — you want us to impose that one on the States but not — not the explicit guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms. That seems very strange.”

The final most important words…

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS:  “The case is submitted.”
