Supreme Court: No Gun Rights Ruling This Week

The Supreme Court convened today, with members of the media anxiously awaiting decisions in many major cases, including D.C. v. Heller, the landmark Second Amendment case. The court did issue five decisions, but did not announce its decision in the Heller case, or the other pair of major cases before it: Exxon Shipping Co. v. Baker (Exxon Valdez punitive damages), and Kennedy v. Louisiana (death penalty for non-homicide rape.)

We will now have to wait until next week for a decision in D.C. v. Heller, one of 10 cases still remaining for the Supreme Court to decide. A Heller ruling might be issued Monday, or another day next week.
