Color Me Surprised

The Supreme Court declined to take action in the case of the District of Columbia's 31 year-old ban on handguns. One would think this would be the type of case the newly emboldened Alito-Roberts Court would love to get their hands on. They still may take it up at a later date, however.

Replace a John Paul Stevens with a movement conservative and these cases would almost certainly be taken, and ruled in favor of the Scalia-Thomas faction. Just another reason why 2008 is so important, and a frequently overlooked one.
