Supreme Court Accepts Chicago 2nd Amendment Case

Today the United States Supreme Court accepted jurisdiction to hear the appeal of a case brought against the City of Chicago challenging Chicago's gun ban scheme. McDonald v. Chicago (08-1521). The case is expected to confirm whether the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms binds the states, rather than simply the federal government. Most states have similar rights written into the state's constitution. So, even if the Second Amendment is found not to apply to the states through incorporation by the Fourteenth Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms would be protected in most states anyway.
