Court to examine gun appeals Nov. 20 (http://www.scotusblog.com/wp/uncategorized/court-to-examine-gun-cases-nov-20/)

The Supreme Court will consider at its private Conference on Nov. 20 whether it will hear one or both of two appeals in a case involving the constitutionality of the District of Columbia’s flat ban on private ownership and use of handguns. The Court’s electronic docket on Thursday indicated that the Justices will be examining District of Columbia v. Heller (07-290) and a conditional cross-petition, Parker v. District of Columbia (07-335) at that time The two cases were up for consideration at the Nov. 9 Conference, but the Justices took no action then.

Any order in the cases could emerge on the day of the Nov. 20 Conference, or the following Monday, Nov. 26.

Looks like we will know either this upcoming Tuesday, or the following Monday if cert. will be granted or denied. It will be one of these two days. Get your popcorn ready.

Oh man, this is going to be worse than the mandatory 10-day waiting period.
