For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous. But the Framers made a clear choice: They reserved to all Americans the right to bear arms for self-defense. I do not think we should stand by idly while a State denies its citizens that right, particularly when their very lives may depend on it.Well said, Mr. Justice. Well said.

Mr. Justice Thomas sometimes seemed to be in the shadow of Justice Scalia. But, he has found his voice in this dissent, where he stands firmly in support of the Second Amendment.
