Forgive my seriously tardy post on this, but the D.C. Circuit in Parker v. District of Columbia, 478 F.3d 370 (D.C. Cir. 2007), recently joined the Fifth in United States v. Emerson, 270 F.3d 203 (5th Cir. 2001), as the only circuit courts in the country to hold that the 2d Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms.


The D.C. opinion, penned by Judge Silberman, is very well-written, and most likely the most cert.-worthy II Am. opinion to come along in years.

Three excellent columns have thus far been written about it, analyzing its merits.

Thx to Judge Silberman for his landmark decision
