The Supreme Court rules for the plaintiff DC v. Heller today, which is good news in and of itself. But what I think is particularly noteworthy is this:

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.”

He said such evidence “is nowhere to be found.”


A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

What am I missing here?

Update: Dang, looks like Rachel scooped me on this.
