This is why they "THINK" they can get away with banning these firearms. This opinion was from the D.C. Appeals Court. It has been cited in just about every court opinion saying it's ok to use "Intermediate" scrutiny (not really useful). We want strict scrutiny, that is the highest level of review and most laws do not pass this test. Although some will.

This case was from 10/4/11 and somebody was asking if these laws have ever been challenged, yes, they have. I'm not sure what Stephen P. Halbrook is going to do with this case, if they are still working it higher to ask for a en banc hearing or what? Anyway, we should all know what is going on. Please bump this with a comment that you either have or have not heard of this case, so more people will know what we are up against.

That's Heller II, NOT the NRA's case. The NRA has provided monetary support to a degree but again, this is Heller, not the NRA.

1) Yes I have heard of this case (see my signature line).
2) It's not over yet and as a result of this case DC did have to loosen its gun control regulations a bit last year.
3) The NRA is not involved with it so please change your subject line.

Thanks for the info guys! Changed the subject line last night and going to bump this so others can see....there is only the DC En banc panel or Supreme Court next, so this type of case is very important. I want everybody to know about it. Wish Gura was in on it as well.

I had vaguely heard about it. Wish the NRA would kick in more than a little money (i.e. bankroll that bitch gratis) and not worry about "who's" case it is.

I know about it. I am wondering what effect DC not prosecuting David Gregory for possession of a 30 round magazine will have on that portion of the case. That whole equal protection under the law thing and all.

Haven't heard this.

Was this the case where they said they could restrict the second amendment when it's dangerous to the government?
