McDonald Court Holds the Mao: Serves Up a Double for the Second Amendment

This just in: The Supreme Court has just held, 5-4, in McDonald v. Chicago:  THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS INCORPORATED AGAINST THE STATES UNDER THE 14th AMENDMENT!

Thomas says under "Privileges or Immunities" clause, other justices say under Due Process clause.

(The Heller decision two years ago held the Second Amendment guaranteed a fundamental individual right of self-defense, but until now this applied only against the federal government.)
