Second Amendment applies to the States also, says WA State Supreme Court

While not actually finding for the appellant (Christopher William Sieyes), the justices did find that the 2nd Amendment applies to the state governments as well as the federal, via the 14th amendment's due process clause.

This should make next month's US Supreme Court's hearing of McDonald v. Chicago, very interesting. Will SCOTUS uphold the same convictions as the WA State Supreme Court, and find that the 2nd Amendmend applies to the states as well as the federal gov't?

Only time will tell.
