There is a large media and blog buzz over the Supreme Court’s decision to hear McDonald v. Chicago, No. 08-1521 (note: the petition was printed by Cockle). HowAppealing, SCOTUS Blog, and Sentencing Law and Policy and Policy all posted links to various media articles prognosticating the Court’s outcome in this Second Amendment case. The media attention will most likely increase when the Court hears argument sometime after the New Year.
Cockle Blog will continue to provide coverage of what will surely be a historical decision on whether the Second Amendment applies to the States.
