Currently however, unless you go through the § 925 relief, as the feds are not interpreting § 921(a)(33)(B)(ii) in the correct manor.

Oh, did I forget to mention that § 925 is not being funded? Get your application for relief of firearms disability, fill it out and send it in (with the required fee) and after a couple or three weeks, it will be returned to you (along with your uncashed check). A nice letter will accompany the return telling you that the program is not being funded by the Congress, so they can't even reject the application. It is merely returned.

The upshot of this, is that the Courts have already ruled that since the application was not denied, you don't have a claim before the court.

So what does this case do?

If successful on the facial challenge (which I think is very, very slim), it overturns the Lautenberg amendment.

If successful on the as-applied challenge, it will allow the States Legislatures to enact statutory law (similar to CA law) to relieve the disability.
