Not the role of this Court

Justice Scalia, in his DC v. Heller majority opinion:

Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to
pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.

Yup. That's a quote I'm going to be using shortly myself.
