    I read the transcript today. Gura was trying to argue an angle that would require overturning 140 years of precedent (Slaughter House Case) while Paul Clement-perhaps the most able appellate advocate in the USA, went with a far more traditional and straightforward argument. The Chicago Solicitor-Feldman-was way out of his league

    What is interesting is all the worry about machine guns but the fact remains, machine guns are commonly used by civilian law enforcement and if you really read heller carefully as well as the predicted decision in McDonald, a good argument for overturning federal and state bans on machine guns exist

    stupid analogy. You are allowed to yell fire if the theater is empty or if there is a fire. You cannot fire a machine gun in a crowded theater unless you have a lawful reason. No one is suggesting banning Yelling fire under all circumstances but the hoplophobes want to ban mere possession of certain or all firearms along with use

    Well, if I cared what people like him thought I'd have much higher blood pressure.


    This is an interesting case. It's sort of the 2nd amendment combined with the 14th amendment butting heads with the 10th amendment.

    sort of but the tenth amendment, if properly read would completely wipe away all federal gun control provisions in their entirety. Gura tried to argue the privileges and immunities angle and noted that the slaughter-house case should be ignored which is the prevailing attitude of legal scholars including the top two con law professors in the USA-Laurence Tribe and sterling professor of law at Yale, AKhil Reed Amar who is probably the most respected con law intellectual in the USA at this point. Scalia chided Gura on pushing what the "professorship or professortate wanted". Clement-former Solicitor General and #1 in his class (the year after obama) at Harvard law argued due process which is the more standard argument.

    It appears to me the justices will overrule chicago

    Ironic, considering our government regularly ignores all three of them...
