NRA certiorari petition

From SCOTUSblog:
The petition discussed in the post below — National Rifle Association, et al, v. City of Chicago, et al. — has now been docketed as 08-1497. ... It raises one question: “Whether the right of the people to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution is incorporated into the Due Process Clause or the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment so as to be applicable to the staes, thereby invalidating ordinances prohibiting possession of handguns in the home.”

More here. The NRA's cert petition filed with the Supreme Court is available here. For those interested, the Seventh Circuit opinion that's being appealed is available here.
