Three Cheers for Alan Gura, Robert Levy, and Clark Neily:

Alan (of Gura & Possessky), Robert (of the Cato Institute), and Clark (of the Institute for Justice) are the lawyers who spearheaded the Heller litigation. As I understand it, many in the gun rights movement were skeptical about the decision to challenge the D.C. handgun ban, because they were worried that there weren't five votes yet for the individual rights view. But Alan, Robert, and Clark pushed ahead, and it turned out they were absolutely right. This is their victory, though all of us are its beneficiaries.
