    Has anything happened regarding the lawsuit against the CT AWB?

    Just as the title asks...I am aware of the lawsuit being filed...and the injunction being filed...but has anything happened such as a granting or denying of the injunction...or anything?

    From my recollection, one suit has been given a schedule of what needs to be done when...expecting an injunction decision in OCT at best.

    I'll be in Hartford with some time on my hands later this month .. I was planning on going to the courthouse and getting all the filings then and putting them into a pdf format. Unfortunately to do this free requires one to visit the court house itself.

    I wish you all luck with this lawsuit but I can just about guarantee that the 2nd district and 2nd cir. ct. of appeals will rule against us.

    The 2nd circuit is extremely hostile to the 2nd amendment.

    Remember, this is the same district where a ban on felons voting was unconstitutional but it's ok to have a 340 dollar license to possess a pistol that you must either reside in NY or have a business in NY to be able to obtain.

    We keep hoping and hearing that SCOTUS will fix these issues, but I'm starting to be less confident. We can't even get them to take and rule on a clear cut case like Kachalsky or any of the other carry cases that have been sent their way.

    SCOTUS .. people pin their hopes on them hearing a case ... but it was 70 yrs (US v. Miller) that the court had cases to take up regarding 2nd amendment issues & incorporation before Heller and they refused to take them. Do you really need a court to rule in your favor to come to your own conclusions?

    No Dave, but in reality, the constitution means whatever 5 people dressed in black moo moo's say it is. And whatever they say holds significant sway with all the people who call themselves the government of the United States.

    So yes, unless the godly people in black moo moo's strike down Connecticuts new gun restrictions/bans, you can bet that the vast majority of the enforcers (police) for the people calling themselves the state of Connecticut WILL arrest and throw your butt in a cage for exercising what you, I and everyone else on here knows is a right.

    Yes there has been some movement.
    Not much to be honest.
    Attend the next CCDL meeting and Attorney Brian T Stapleton will give an update.

    Want me to call the judge?

    Oddly enough, they don't like those types of calls.....they're grumpy I guess.

    I'm a-stickin' to my original projection of October ... the court can turn around and issue an injunction v. quickly with a memo to follow months later.
