I was reading over some things about Dred Scott v. Sanford I came across something interesting that pertains to the 2nd Amendment. Here's the wikipedia link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dred_Scott_v._Sandford

And here's the quote I thought was interesting:

"It would give to persons of the ***** race, …the right to enter every other State whenever they pleased, …the full liberty of speech in public and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might speak; to hold public meetings upon political affairs, and to keep and carry arms wherever they went."
This case was decided in 1857.

I just thought that it was interesting that the Court was willing to concede that free citizens had the unquestioned right to keep and carry arms wherever they went. This was as recent as 1857.

Somehow I doubt it helps our cause to quote this case.
