The courts of appeal must
take the appeal. They will either rule to affirm or remand the case.

Certainly. But then again, he could have refused to appeal, couldn't he? That he didn't, says nothing about the Governor (who could have hired another attorney to defend the State).
As you implied, if it wasn't for the ideologues, we wouldn't have Heller,
let alone McDonald.
