Gunning for an Argument

The Supreme Court is going to hear arguments over a second amendment challenge to the DC City gun ban. Interestingly enough, its been over 70 since any second amendment case has gotten this far. Despite the long running debate on what rights, exactly, the second amendment is giving, SCOTUS has never ruled on the matter.
Which is really strange considering how many fights break out over "right to bear arms." Is it an indivigual right or just a right connected to military service? Count me in the latter camp, but at least this argument is going to get a hearing.

I fail to understand why everyone seems so excited to have Clarence Thomas rule on this.
