The Second Amendment and Personal Preference

Should a judge's personal preference weigh in on a decision in a court case? What about the opinion of a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, on a landmark case?

"It is simply my hope that some of the justices will defy expectation over how they will vote on the 'individual' versus 'collective' right issue so that we do not have to endure another summer debating whether constitutional adjudication consists of anything other than judges imposing their own personal preferences on the text of the U.S. Constitution."

Attorney Howard Bashman ponders the possibilities at Law.com.
