That is the best way to ensure a ruling stands.

SCOTUS Cert denied for KACHALSKY. Not good at all. Bye bye Constitution, it was nice knowing you. Our rights aren't really rights any more, they are now privledges that can be rationed.

This does not bode well for Cert in Wollard.

En Banc denied for Woollard. Not a surprise. Glad they did it fast. I hope it goes for cert to SCOTUS, but after yesterday's KACHALSKY cert denial from them, who the hell knows. The lower courts are severely needing guidance, but so far it's not coming from SCOTUS. All the while people are being denied a fundamental right.

Here is a good read from Lead attorney Allan Gura talking about the SCOTUS desicion to deny cert, and about the fundamental 2A issue that lower courts are creating.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013...ot-taking/

“The Supreme Court needs to rule on the lower courts using rational basis review, which it clearly forbade in Heller” said Mr. Gura. The civil right lawyer is referring to Justice Antonin Scalia’s majority opinion which said that a higher level of scrutiny must be applied when judging restrictions on constitutional rights, especially fundamental ones.

“If the Court doesn’t address the issue, then the Second Amendment is largely a dead letter — it would become mostly unenforceable because there is no such thing as a gun law for which the legislature or police can’t offer a hypothetical justification.”
