The Court of Appeals ruling was based on its conclusion that the Second Amendment guarantees the right of the states to maintain armed militias but does not grant individuals the right to bear arms

what decision?

It doesn't matter.

Why would ANY US Court see the SA as anything other than an INDIVIDUAL right???

That quote is actually in many districts' opinions. That is why Emmerson in TX is so important. It says individual right and thereby creates a split among the various appeals courts. The Supreme Court often (well sometimes) agrees to hear such cases to settle the law and make it consistant throught the counrty (although, I think the S.CT already denied hearing Emmerson).

My weapons and I believe the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right.

Nobody elses opinion really matters!

Funny how the 9th circuit court also ruled that home made machineguns that don't travel interstate are legal, the '86 cutoff notwithstanding. Too bad the defendant in that case was an ass.
