US vs Skoien decision in

http://www.ca7.uscourts.gov/fdocs/do...8-3770_004.pdf


Intermediate scrutiny for a fundamental right - lifetime ban for a misdemeanor okay - the court comes up with the evidence to support/make the governments case - the court dismisses as dicta all parts of Heller decision except reasonable restrictions. Lovely. Since I believe this is the circuit and the judges who will hear the lawsuits over the new Chicago gun laws it looks like they will be held constitutional and have to be appealed to the USSC again - if they will grant cert.

Seventh Circuit - rules 2nd applys only to keeping a hangun in the home subject to reasonable restrictions as determined by legislation.
