What does this mean for guys behind enemy lines (CA, CT, MD, IL, NY, NJ, MA) ....

 

It means that unreasonable restrictions on the ownership of handguns by states and municipalities (as well as the fed.gov) is unconstituional. The case in question, McDonald vs. City of Chicago, ruled that Chicago's handgun ban is unconstitutional.

 

There will most certainly be challenges to state and municipal "assault weapon" and "high capacity magazine" bans, and that these bans will likely be overturned.

 

With the focus on "keep" of "keep and bear" becoming increasingly clarified, "bear" will also be the next focus of litigation, barring an act of Congress to impose recognition and reciprocity of state concealed weapons permits.

The job of the SC is to enforce the constitution. How could four judges that're supposed to be knowledgeable enough to be appointed to the supreme court render opinions that're virtually opposite to what the document says. If just one of the conservative judges gets replaced by a liberal, freedom will go the way of the dodo bird and the dinosaur.

my guess is that you haven't read all 200+ pages of the opinions. I'm sure the minority reasoned their way to their result.

It's also going to be settled law for quite a while. Even if the court complexion changes, it will be years from that point before a test case gets to the Supremes.
