    Finally the U.S. Supreme Court landmark decision District or Columbia V. Heller is getting the fine tuning necessary to put this decision into practical reality, but we're not quite there yet. When all is said and then there will a new balance of gun limitations and controls that will balance the need for public safety and the right to bear arms. BOTH extreme sides to this issue will be eventually sorely disappointment nevertheless.

    Legislators are understandably desperate. I hope this is will curtail gun violence, but the defense bar will find a way to get criminals off the hook or the courts will not impose penalties. The discrepancy in DUI laws between the US and Europe have the same problem, good laws but poorly enforced in the US. Just listen to the radio advertisements for DWI attorneys. The one law which cannot be avoided is the law of unintended consequences.
