    Federal appeals court voids ruling against D.C.’s ‘good reason’ law. Making sausage.

    Tuesday’s ruling was handed down by Judges Sentelle and Laurence Silberman, both of whom were appointed by President Ronald Reagan; and Judge Nina Pillard, who was appointed by President Obama.

    If the decision was voided because the judge wasn't given authority to hear the case, who in the world assigned it to him in the first place?

    Usually a Chief Judge or his clerk, or a calendaring committee. In this case, as made clear in the cited article, “The calendar committee of the District Court assigned the matter to Judge Scullin because it deemed the case to be related to another case over which Judge Scullin presided.”

    A federal judge is a federal judge. If he's called in to help clear a backlog, then it shouldnt matter where the hell he's from. These idiots are playing politics on their fiddles while DC burns around them.
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    They'll blame the clerk who assigned it.

    I would agree ... no judge can rule on limits to our RKBA.

    Rights are rights and not subject to a vote by any government officials. Only we can protect our rights.

    Really. So I guess in your state you are free to ignore any and all of the rulings made by local, state, and appeals courts ... all the way up to SCOTUS. Same for all of the laws infringing on RKBA where you live.

    Do you think that the government can regulate your rights?

    This is very disappointing. Does anyone know what the plaintiffs' next move will be?

    Not completely unexpected. The case goes back to the District Court for rehearing before a different Judge. (Not Scullin)

    Oh they will try to stop you. But no good citizen will tolerate that. According to the 2A the people are the Militia and this surrender would be tantamount to cowardice. The government only can only deny us freedom if we allow it. The only valid law in this case is the highest one. The 2A itself. The question is where are the Americans who believe that still? Or have they all given up, compromised and become obedient puppets of the system

    well I can tell that as defense of ones rights and freedom isnt allowed even in places that are supposed to support the 2A. I actually hope Hillary wins and we have 8 years of her. Serve us Militia right for being cowards and not defending our Constitution. I bet in Colonial days the attitudes I hear all the time now would get a person hung for cowardice. Shame on us.
