More on the Supreme Court ruling on the DC gun ban. Jill Porter on the gun industry. State Sen. Vince Fumo spent the night in hospital after collapsing on the state Senate floor. Mayor Nutter reveals his plans for Penn's Landing. Clout reports on a City Hall security snafu. Officers at the hall wouldn't let Daniel Moffat in the building without a police escort.
