    Leonard is still pushing his case - All the way to SCOTUS

    Link: http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.a...es/13-8464.htm

    Some here don't like the guy, but you gotta admire his approach. He said that if he lost he would appeal all the way to the Supreme COurt, and that is exactly what he has done.

    Good luck Leonard!

    I think its in respect to this ... he did nothing wrong.

    Cop's have no right to know if you are carrying a loaded gun or not...are their guns unloaded.

    The cop did not want to get shot? lol

    Representing himself, of course. Wow.

    What was this?:

    "Notice of bankruptcy by petitioner received."

    I don't speak lawyer but it sounds like an attempt to bypass some kind of fees?

    He did ask for a fee waiver .. that was denied.

    Guess I've lost track. Is this over the carry of the "cased" AR with suppressor in downtown Nashville? If so, he was convicted? And if so, don't there have to be a succession of appeals up the ladder first?

    Can't tell from the SCOTUS link, so I ask again:

    Is this over the carry of the "cased" AR with suppressor in downtown Nashville?

    According to page 26 of the Cert Petition...

    http://blog.californiarighttocarry.o...chment_id=1755

    ...the case arises from the revocation of his permit due to the Bell Meade black powder pistol incident:

    http://nashvillecitypaper.com/conten...-meade-gun-ban

    However, according to that document, the focus of his appeal is no longer to be granted his HCP back, but has shifted to the unconstitionality of Tennessee Code Annoted 39-17-1307.

    Ah, thanks. I thought this probably still had to do with his TN constitutional challenge from good while ago.

    He's right too IMNSHO. Unless the state can decisively prove that the HCP process "prevents crime", it doesn't stand muster. I would submit that the HCP process creates crime, by making criminals out of otherwise law abiding residents.
