As hard as they were on him, two of the three judges were sympathetic to Gura's arguments. The sympathetic-sounding female judge is Diane Sykes, who wrote one of the first opinions [pdf] suggesting the application of strict scrutiny to regulations of 2nd Amendment rights.

James Feldman represents Chicago in this case. Apparently his dissembling and stammering in orals for McDonald v. Chicago weren't grim enough, and they decided to give him a second chance.
