I think the two most striking things about today's events were 1) an appeals court justice demanding to know plaintiff's long term goal. The way he asked that question signaled that he would rule based strictly on his personal politics. Basically he was highly offended that his someone might want to restore the right to keep and bear arms. 2) the rapidity with which the court posted their decision is a clear signal that the decision was made well before they heard any oral arguments, and I suspect well before any of the filings. Today was nothing but a show trial to give some fig leaf of legitimacy to predetermined outcome.
