Today is the day

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court is meeting to issue opinions in some of the seven cases it has yet to decide.

Major cases still unresolved include the ban on handguns in Washington, D.C., whether people convicted of raping children can be given the death penalty and the $2.5 billion punitive damages judgment against Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) for the Exxon Valdez disaster.

I have to leave in a few minutes so I will likely hear the outcome of the Second Amendment case on the radio.

Like most people I have been expecting the Court to rule that the Second Amendment recognizes an individual right. After all that is the only ruling possible unless the court wants to completely trash the Constitution and make up their own law from the bench.

I pause now to let the reader consider some of the insane 5-4 rulings that the High Court has already released this year.

So far this morning they have ruled the wrong way on the issue of whether those who rape children can be put to death and the right way on reducing the damages that Exxon must pay in regard to the Exxon Valdez accident.

I find myself growing apprehensive.


Drudge has a cryptic note on his website indicating that the 2nd Amd. ruling will be released tomorrow.

I fully expect them to hold this one till last regardless of how they rule it will be the most explosive announcment they have made since Roe v Wade.
