I realize this is the Nineth, but out of curiosity is Reinhardt usually considered pro-2nd Amendment?
I think it's fair to say that many people viewed Judge Reinhardt as hostile to the RTKBA. This is the first time Judge Reinhardt has ever acknowledged in an opinion, that carrying a gun is a Second Amendment right.

In perspective, this isn't Moore/Shepard v Madigan, not even a 2A case and as Aguila Blanca points out - it's the dissenting opinion.

I can't help but wonder though, if Judge Reinhardt has come to this conclusion by interpreting what SCOTUS has said in Heller and McDonald, wouldn't that same message have gotten through to Judges Posner, Williams and Flaum?
