This is the Sotomayor case on nunchuku.

Short Table of Contents:

I. The Circuits Are Divided by the Questions of Whether the Second
Amendment Is Incorporated Against the States Through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and Whether
the Courts of Appeals Have Power Even to Reach That Issue.

II. The Court Should Also Grant Certiorari Over the Question of Whether the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment Applies the Second Amendment Against the States.​

The difficulty that the Maloney case could encounter as the best vehicle for review of the issue, however, would arise if the Senate confirmed Judge Sotomayor’s nomination for a seat on the Supreme Court. Because she was on the appeals court panel that decided that very case, she presumably would not feel free to participate in the case at the Court.
Yeh, right. Ms. touchy feely would not "feel" free to participate. BS, From the clips I have seen of this creature's actions on the bench there is nothing that would slow her down in pushing her opinion on everyone involved.

To the people who wrote the petition, just a friendly correction. Henry St. George Tucker did not write Blackstone's Commentaries. St. George Tucker did. Henry St. George Tucker was the son of St. George Tucker.
