The 9th Say "Yes," But the 7th, She Say "No"

....and off to SCOTUS we go!

The 7th Circuit ruled that the 2A is NOT 'incorporated,' like 7 of the other 9 amendments in the BOR, in the City of Chicago case brought following Heller.

Well, that would be OK, if the OTHER 9 amendments in the BOR were not, I guess.

The twist: here the 7th uses precedent (an 1886 decision) while the 9th simply ignores it.

Lots more discussion here.
