From David Freddoso writing at The Corner:

ARLINGTON, VA — U.S. Senator John McCain today issued the following statement on District of Columbia v. Heller:

“Today, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on District of Columbia v. Heller, a landmark case for all Americans who believe as I do that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms. I am proud to have joined in an amicus brief to the Court calling for a ruling in keeping with the clear intent of our Founding Fathers, which ensures the Second Amendment rights of the residents of District of Columbia are reaffirmed.”

Freddoso has this comment: “McCain’s position on gun rights is now, on paper, superior to that of the Bush Administration, whose lawyers have taken a more moderate tack in merely asking for the case to be remanded to the lower court.”

We agree. In this case, McCain is right, and Bush is wrong. Kudos to John McCain for getting one right.
