THE DISTRICT'S decision this week to seek Supreme Court review of a court opinion striking down its gun control laws is fraught with risk, but it's a risk that the District was right to take. ...

As a matter of public safety and public policy, we support the District's gun control regime. We believe that compelling public safety concerns allow regulation of weapons even if a right to bear arms is recognized.

But the D.C. Circuit's decision ... is not without merit -- and that's where the risk comes in. The idea that the Second Amendment recognizes an individual right to bear arms is not exclusive to right-wing gun nuts ... Some of the brightest liberal minds in the legal community have come -- albeit reluctantly -- to the same conclusion.
