The Supreme Court has heard arguments about the meaning of the Second Amendment and the District of Columbia's ban on handguns.



A majority appears to support the view that the amendment protects an individual's right to own guns, rather than somehow linking right to service in a state militia.



But it is less clear what that means for the District's 32-year-old ban on handguns, perhaps the strictest gun control law in the nation.
