      But it remains true that the level of permissible regulation of fundamental rights is much lower than that allowed for other things.

      In particular, "rational basis" review is explicitly ruled out in Heller. The actual standard of review is yet to be determined, but I have good reason to think that it's going to be far more to my liking than to yours.

      Like it or not, you're going to have to frame your arguments within that more limited context if you expect to get anywhere.
