"District Court embraces as-applied Second Amendment limit on federal felon-in-possession prohibtion"

I think a reasonable liberal would recognize a constitutional right to own firearms (if not the means used in Heller) and found the 5-4 split on the point unfortunate. This would still leave open various limits, including for those convicted of a crime. Nonetheless, and Martha Stewart at times is used as an example, a blanket rule here is overbroad. And, perhaps some common ground can be found here in respect to other fundamental rights such as voting.
