Conviction Vacated on Lautenberg

Very good news for the Second Amendment. The problem would seem to be the government made a really bad case for the constitutionality of Lautenberg, basically taking the line of “Of course, it’s constitutional!” which the Circuit Court in this case didn’t seem to appreciate. The statute is not ruled unconstitutional, but the Circuit Court basically said that government actually needs to make an argument that doesn’t rely on a presumption of constitutionality. They are holding the government to a higher standard, which is appropriate when constitutional rights are at issue.
