Do you think this might be the landmark case that will bring national CCW? My take on it is that it [i]may[/i] force national Vermont style CCW. Depends on whether or not SCOTUS decides to hear it. It also has other implications, as the Superior Court ruling defines RKBA as an individual right. This case will be much stronger than the Emerson case and should work well as a lever to wipe out all of the idiotic gun control laws if it reaches the Federal courts.

First off SCOTUS will not hear this case since they loath to interfere with a states right issue , ask people from NJ on that point . Second I don't want the Feds involved in any way on gun issues since it gives idiots like Feinstein an 'in' on mesing with my rights here in Washington state . There is already a cross state reciprocty drive on , I believe the main thrust on that is coming from states like TX and AZ .

I haven't read the case, but as I understand it, this case was in Ohio state court, and the decision based on the Ohio state constitution, not the US Constitution. Thus its only relevant to the state of Ohio and has no effect on any other state or federal jurisdiction.

Not just that. The current ruling only effects Hamilton County. This case is bound for the Ohio Supreme Court. It will be interesting to see what happens since Supreme Court Justices in Ohio are elected.
