I felt like I was reading an English composition paper on sentence structure and parsing with that ruling.

Ex post facto was not an issue in the case, only the construction of a poorly worded statute.

The 2A and ex post facto may figure in subsequent proceedings, but no ruling was made with respect to those matters in this opinion.

wondering, what exactly does this case mean, that anyone covincted of domestic violence cant own guns? Or certain offenses? Ive heard so many things about the case and was wondering on clarity, ive known several people who have been involved in some BS cases, verbal or alleged assaults that often didn't happen.

The fallacy in the law has always been that you could beat the livin' c--- out of a woman who is a stranger and get a misdemeanor beef for it; and you could still own a firearm. I think that the current effort is to attempt to roll more and more misdemeanor crimes under Lautenberg; or something like Lautenberg.

Regardless, Lautenberg will be used as the "precedent" under which these continuing usurpations will occur.
