    Gun Show Promoters Dealt Setback By U.S. Appeals Court (Nordykes case)

    http://sfappeal.com/news/2011/05/gun...eals-court.php

    In today's ruling, the appeals court said the standard for judging a law that restricts gun possession should be whether the law substantially burdens gun owners' rights. The court said the county ordinance was not a substantial burden because it applies only to county property.
    "The ordinance does not prohibit gun shows, but merely declines to host them on government premises," the court said.
    But the ruling does not end the case. The court said the Nordykes could amend their lawsuit to present additional facts to try to show they suffered a substantial burden on their rights.



    <edit> Evidently we now have a new process to insert links.......

    Link Broken.

    I hope they take up the recommendation to do just that.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
