I think that Cole's lawyer, Michael Gould, needs to take a few more classes. Right to keep and bear arms is not granted by the state or the government. Its a right that exists even if its not mentioned. Its an inherent right. Putting it into the Constitution just explicitly protects it.
Why didn't Michael Gould skewer asst AG Kassel with the 'prohibition of CCW guns harmful in cases of road rage'. I would say that in that case, its not lawful anymore, is it.
When a Justice asked Michael Gould about concealed gun in a bank to make a legitimate withdrawal, Mr. Gould said "Its probably not a good idea to have people going into banks with guns." Seems to me that it would be good for the bank and bad for bank robbers to have citizens carry guns with them while they make legitimate withdrawals or business with the bank
We lost US vs Miller in SCOTUS because of a bad lawyer, and look at where we are at.
Of the bat, I like Mr Hamdan's lawyer, Chris Trebatoski.
He puts the court at ease, makes a comment about his hunting weapons in the gun safe his mom bought for him.
He talks about the state's "Oh Don't Worry We Won't Prosecute You For That." attitude.
