  1. I think this is also the case where the Heller and McDonald rulings were used, regarding gun ownership in the home, by the Defense, but the Court dismissed Heller and McDonald because the Defendent’s hometown didn’t not have enough crime to warrant a firearm.

    And that is how NJ will get around Heller/McDonald.

    I still wonder if he appealed to the federal judiciary. I would guess he didn’t, since we haven’t heard anything.

    It just occured to me, that if we all folded and agreed to revoke the 2nd amendment and ban all gun ownership by the law-abiding, the anti-gun folks would move smoothly on toward trying to screw people out of other rights. If we accepted that this guy should lose his right to own a gun, they would go after his right to marry, or his right to co-own a house whose door he had damaged.
