    Bump.

    The Worman appeal will be heard by the First Circuit on January 9th. The Comm2A Worman webpage has been updated with all the relevant filings. Take note of all the amicus briefs filed against us.

    The same session of the First Circuit will also hear the AG's appeal of their denied MTD in Pullman Arms v. Healy, the NSSF case challenging the AG's revised AWB interpretation. Those filings have been added to our website as well.

    Court never made it past the first part.... how on earth did her stunt not "impose a burden" on the 2nd amendment ?

    How come they never mention (unless I missed it) the actual definition of the 2nd amendment as defined in the 1700's...

    The district court applied a “two-part approach” for evaluating Second Amendment challenges, under which “courts first consider whether the law ‘imposes a burden on conduct that falls within the scope’ of the Second Amendment.” (Id. at A-4) (quoting Powell v. Tompkins, 783 F.3d 332, 347 n.9 (1st Cir. 2015)). I

    We are under full assault here in Ma.

    Please don’t forget to contribute a small amount for the battle to be brought to the commie despots killing off gun shops and ranges and ownership piece by piece.

    Well, oral arguments will be fun. The panel will be Barron, Souter, and Selya. They all hate us.

    I think that is a requirement for being on the 1st circuit court.

    The appellant's attorney was overly belligerent in arguing the semantic point of whether or not the MA AW ban was a ban on a category of weapons. The judges knew what he was trying to say but were just trying to get him to phrase it differently or at least acknowledge their perspective on how it should be framed. He spent way too much of his time arguing as if he didn't understand their point about framing, or as if it was obvious that the judges' framing was wrong. That time could have been better spent persuading them.

    It doesn't matter because the court is probably going to rule against us anyway, but it wasn't a good look.

    I expect it to be about the speed of smell, but one can be hopeful.

    My guess is that the court will go out of its way to compliment the AG, and word the decision to firmly and indelibly establish that the AG can rewrite law as long it is for a desired social outcome.

    Isn't the very first thing out of the AAG's mouth a lie? She said these weapons are commonly used to murder police officers. I can't recall an instance of that occurring.

    This is for the NSSF case, not the GOAL case. Let's try and keep info in these threads specific to the case so that they don't cause confusion.

    I know it's not going to happen. As fast as the heard the case about a football about whether or not there was too much or not enough air in it.
