https://www.keepandbeararms.com/newsarchives/XcNewsPlus.asp?cmd=view&articleid=1890 KeepAndBearArms.com -- Arizona gun kit maker Bob Stewart just received some fascinating news. On the day before the federal anti-Second-Amendment trial against him was to begin, his civil rights, including his gun rights, were restored by a federal judge. According to a two-page federal ORDER signed by Arizona Magistrate Lindsay Ellis of the Superior Court of the State of Arizona, Maricopa County, on August 20, 2001, "IT IS ORDERED that the civil rights of applicant Robert D. Stewart aka Robert W. Stewart, be restored, including the restoration of his right to possess firearms." Considering the fact that BATF's prosecuting attorneys have been seeking prosecution on "felon in possession of firearms" charges, the above is quite relevant. But far more intriguing is the fact that the ORDER by the federal judge is backdated to August of 1998. Specifically, "IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that these rights be restored nunc pro tunc to August 17, 1998." "Nunc pro tunc" literally means "now for then." Translated, a "nunc pro tunc" order by the court is to be treated as if it were ordered on the date ORDERED -- in this case, August 17, 1998. Could it be that the BATF's prosecution isn't prosecuting a "prior felon in possession" anymore? Click the link up top for a lot more info...

This is great, however the judge is not a federal judge.
