“This lawsuit has taken 7 years of my life.  I have been very careful in writing my briefs.” says Mr. Nichols, “My legal arguments do not stray even an inch from what the U.S. Supreme Court has already said about the manner in which arms may be carried that is protected under the Second Amendment—and has consistently said for well over 100 years.  I still have a way to go, but I am hoping that with the State of California telling the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that the Supreme Court got it wrong and my telling the court that the Supreme Court precedents are binding, the court of appeals may very well recognize that banning a right is an infringement on that right and that the Constitution means what it says–the Second Amendment right “shall not be infringed.””

  1. I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for the leftmost (politically and geographically) circuit court in the country to support the constitution over the ideology of the left — but the 9th Circuit has a long record of providing humorous reading for SCOTUS.

  2. It the people’s 2A right’s are infringed then all ruling’s on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights must be denied, as well as other item’s like legal marijuana as well as other leftie item’s.

    1. Why do we have to give up other rights, simply because we are being denied one right. That is nonsense.
