If Scalia Is Writing Heller Vs DC Opinion Is It An Awesome Sign?

"It does look exceptionally likely that Justice Scalia (the most pro-2nd Amendment of the Supremes) is writing the principal opinion for the Court in Heller – the D.C. guns case.
That is the only opinion remaining from the sitting and he is the only member of the Court not to have written a majority opinion from the sitting. There is no indication that he lost a majority from March. His only dissent from the sitting is for two Justices in Indiana v. Edwards. So, that’s a good sign for advocates of a strong individual rights conception of the Second Amendment and a bad sign for D.C."
