Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan talked about her views on the second amendment during confirmation hearings, and indicated she agrees with some recent decisions. In fact, she said she considers the recent decisions "good precedent going forward."
She indicated she thinks the recent case of District of Columbia v. Heller is binding precedent and she sees no reason to believe the Court applied incorrect analysis in that case. She also said the decision last week in Chicago v. McDonald are entitled to same precedent as other Court decisions.
