    I am afraid that it isn't looking good for the Heller case, based on the decisions coming down from SCOTUS of late. Here is another 5-4 liberal decision.


    'The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down a law that allows the execution of people convicted of raping a child. In a 5-4 vote, the court said the Louisiana law allowing the death penalty to be imposed in such cases violates the Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment. "The death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child," Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his majority opinion. His four liberal colleagues joined him, while the four more conservative justices dissented.'

    Many years ago, in B'kly NY-there was a NY state judge, who was known as the hanging judge---he was a defense attorney for the guys of organized crime, when his daughter was raped & abused---he decided to change sides--heaven help the defendant who faced him for any sexual assault crime-- ( don't remember his name)---Phil

    In another 50 years it won't even be illegal. This country is doomed.
