51. Except it was never about restrictions, and yes

I see Chicago and DC allowing private possession of handguns; licensing, registration and no carry are fine but prohibition of possession isn't. I haven't seen any challenges at any level to regulations and in light of Heller/McDonald I don't see any forthcoming. I think (legally, not in the discussion here) there's a certain detente in the debate right now - restrictions, even pretty strict ones, are acceptable, but categorical bans, and legal wrangling designed to make legal possession impossible, are out.

Rational discussion can only come after both sides accept the realities - you aren't going to get Heller overturned, and they aren't going to get licensing/reg/&c thrown out. Course, I see hell freezing over before anybody on either side accepts that.
