Best bet here is that Scotus sets a new standard via the NYSRPA case, then this one gets sent back to the 7th. At this point, the Friedman case is essentially nullified and we'll be on a blank slate.

There is no such thing as "essentially nullified."  If a law is not repealed and if there is no court judgment prohibiting enforcement of a law then the government is free to enforce that law. Legislators, judges and prosecutors have absolute immunity.  The barrier of "qualified immunity" for police has been raised so high, it might as well be absolute immunity.

The only advantage and disadvantage of a AR is penetration.

AR as home defense is my last choice.   

Shotgun can cover a very large area.

Pistol can shoot just as accurately as a rifle in a home. 

 

Rifles do this to plate steel (non AR500) the TV, Wall, refrigerator, isn't going to stop this. 

 

AR is my first choice for HD. 

Penetration is based on bullet construction and velocity.  There are a lot of variables.

SCOTUS has scheduled the case for conference on March 6.
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

So they are free to continue wiping their fat rear ends with the Second Amendment. Get ready for the ILGA to kick the "common (non)sense" into gear.

 The Judges hinted a few weeks back it was time for a 2A case. Now they kick 10 cases to the curb. Looks like we where played again, either from fake news or the Judges themselves. Both of there track records stink.

It smells an awful lot like Chief So-Called Justice Roberts is driven less by an urge to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and more by an urge to preserve, protect, and defend the Court from Chuck Schumer's threats.

 

If the Court is to survive as an independent branch of government, we will need to get at least one and preferably two more Justices on the side of the Constitution. To say nothing of better decisions coming up from the appellate level.

Yep, until another Democrat judge is replaced by a Constitutional judge there won't be any relief for the 2A. And to think there's people on this very forum who will vote for Biden smh.

In the meantime, stop relying on the courts and get active yourselves. If all you’re doing is posting on forums and not doing your part (calls, protests, advocacy, etc), you have no right to complain down the road (just a statement, not directed at anyone).
