Chill Out re: Heller

Law blogs (or blawgs, if you’re a silly person) are going absolutely nuts over the impending Heller decision. Over at Volokh, the everawesome (and possibly evergreen) Professor Kerr has a post telling everyone to come back tomorrow and one commenter asks:

On what day of the term was Brown v. Board of Education released? This would represent about as big a shift in the law, in my opinion.

Other people said sillier things but I can only pray that they were jokes by virtue of the fact that they were just that ridiculous. I’m at a loss for words. I really am. What do you say to these people?

If you are in search of real insight into the most important opinion ever released and a written work that will go down in the annals of history alongside the Magna Carta and the Holy Bible, check out Professor O’Shea’s analysis over at Concurring Opinions.
