OT: 2nd Amendment case

Here's a surprising one: Congress filed an amicus brief on behalf of the respondents today. Over half of each body -- 55 senators and 250
representatives -- plus Dick Cheney signed it. What's weird is that it contradicts much of the DOJ brief says.
It's also an interesting brief, strongly supporting the individual-rights position.
Here's the brief:

Here's the SCOTUSblog comment about it:

And here's a Washington Post article about it, "Majority of Hill Stands Against D.C. Gun Ban":

Don't use the link to the brief that's in the Washington Post article. It's an incomplete version.
