Kopel argues that NY's law might be unconstitutional. Here's a link:

For the those who don't read the Wall Street Journal regularly, you might be surprised to learn that it's opposed to mindless gun control.

Let's see, we have Nordyke (CA) before the 9th Circuit. We have 2 cases in Chicago (7th Circuit), and it now looks like NYC (2nd Circuit) will be the next venue for incorporation.

Momentum is building.

Mr. Kopel, makes some excellent arguments. Let's hope the right people pay attention to such points.

With the various cases comming up, I hope the 2nd Amendment is incorporated. It doesn't make sense to me that Constitutional protections can be violated by state laws, given the supremacy clause.

Mr. Burress might well be lacking the "poster boy" qualities offered by Dick Heller, however it seems to me, and here I might be dead wrong, that if we can win on this incorporation business, that we might have, in fact, climbed that slippery elm.
