Heller decision

5-4 in favor of the individual right to bear arms.

My favorite quote so far:

In a dissent he summarized from the bench, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that the majority "would have us believe that over 200 years ago, the Framers made a choice to limit the tools available to elected officials wishing to regulate civilian uses of weapons."

Except, of course, the part where they passed the 2nd amendment as part of the Bill of Rights.
