McDonald, like Heller, was decided 5-4. One of the dissenters, Justice John Paul Stevens, has since retired from the court. His successor, Justice Elena Kagan, has not yet had occasion to cast a vote in a gun-rights case (and as solicitor general she did not file a brief in McDonald). But we are going to go out on a limb and guess that she agrees with Ginsburg, Breyer and Sotomayor that the Second Amendment is essentially a nullity.

If that is correct, then the court is one vote away from having a majority to reverse Heller. Two of the justices in the pro-Second Amendment majority, Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy, will be 80 by the end of the next presidential term. If either or both of them were to leave the court during a second Obama term, it is far likelier than not that an Obama appointee would join what is now the minority to kill the Second Amendment.

What's to debate? I aim with both hands and that is as much gun control as this country needs.

Nothing is as risky as certain failure.

Until obama is inaugurated for his 2nd 4 years in office.

The discussion IS going to get serious if obama gets appointed affirmative action "president" for a 2nd term

How? I keep hearing this and no one gives any specific details. You have that local judge saying the UN is coming. I talked with guy at a gun shop who says that the government is building secret prisons to use after the election. When pressed for details, he got all evasive. I didn't vote for Obama, won't vote for him this time. So, how is he going to kill the 2nd amendment? So far, he has done next to nothing of substance on the domestic front. The claims that obamacare will limit the 2nd amendment are people's estimations. I'm not saying that he doesn't have these goals. I just want facts and details.

No, obama is not going to wipe out our rights the day after the election, it'll take awhile for him to do all the damage he intends to do.
No huge sweeping changes to the laws, no grand edicts, just 2 or 3 appointments to the Supreme Court. A handful of "common sense" gun laws and a massacre. Bingo, big time gun rights restrictions.
He could eleminate semi-automatic guns, restrict types and quantity of ammunition, limit keeping and bearing arms to government licensed gun clubs.

You're right, he's not going to march in the brown shirts, that would get too bloody too fast.
