G. O. P. 5

Credit where it is due: Obama Administration opposes challenge to 2nd Amendment rights.
March 9 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court left intact lower court decisions shielding Smith & Wesson Holding Corp., Sturm, Ruger & Co. and other gunmakers from lawsuits pressed by New York City and shooting victims in Washington, D.C.

...President Barack Obama’s administration joined the gun industry in urging the Supreme Court not to question the constitutionality of the 2005 law, known as the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. Like the Bush administration, Obama’s lawyers didn’t take a position on whether the federal law required dismissal of the lawsuits.
RTWT, it is interesting to know the origins of this suit. Hint: Giuliani Opposes Pistols.
