Damon Root has s great piece at Reason Online on Judge Sonia Sotomayor, nominated by President Obama to fill a soon to be vacant seat on the Supreme Court, who is on record as being not friendly to the second Amendment. She joined an opinion in a 2nd Circuit case out of New York that the Second Amendment does not apply to states and local governments. The 9th Circuit disagreed recently in Nordyke v. King, which I posted about earlier. The issue is headed for SCOTUS, and Sotomayor may be there to rule on it.
