While I applaud the court's decision (especially Justice Thomas) I am somewhat disheartened that the court refused to overturn the slaughterhouse cases.  I have not yet had time to read the entirety of the opinion yet but it was a substantive due process decision which I am not a fan of.  However, it is a victory on 2nd amendment rights at least for the time being.  I hope to have a fuller analysis by the end of the week.  

I encourage you to read the opinion for yourself and let me know what you think.  I know its a few hundred pages but sometimes its worth the read.  :)

    Ludwig von Mises: 'Used to the conditions of a capitalistic environment, the average American takes it for granted that every year business makes something new and better accessible to him. Looking backward upon the years of his own life, he realizes that many implements that were totally unknown in the days of his youth and many others which at that time could be enjoyed only by a small minority are now standard equipment of almost every household. He is fully confident that this trend will prevail also in the future. He simply calls it the American way of life and does not give serious thought to the question of what made this continuous improvement in the supply of material goods possible.' - Economic Freedom and Interventionism
