2007 Business Review -- Guns

This is the 8th of a series of posts about the year's most important business stories:

The U.S. Supreme Court agreed in 2007 to decide whether D.C. can ban the sale and possession of firearms.

It goes without saying how "Machine Gun Sammy" Alito will vote. The same holds true for Justices Thomas, Roberts and Scalia. We also know in advance how the four liberal Justices will vote.

That leaves Reagan-nominated Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.

Two or three times per session Justice Kennedy on major cases inexplicably will vote to the left. So, it's not wise to count our chickens before they're shot.

But consider for a moment the frothing and utterly-deranged reaction from the media and other liberal groups if the SCOTUS shoots down so-called "gun control" laws.
