I will believe it when I see a ruling. Judge Sotomayor still needs to be grilled on this during her confirmation hearings before the U.S. Senate.
"Colorado Sen. Mark Udall, a democrat, says Sotomayor told him at a meeting Thursday that she will work from the high court's decision in the District of Columbia v. Heller in future cases involving gun rights. "
Keep in mind, the Heller decision stated that Heller did not prohibit states from enacting their own restrictions on firearms. Will she support states that infringe on the rights of moms and grandmothers to possess a firearm to defend their lives against violent crime?
