The NRA also had an optimistic view of the courts at that time and thought the Hughes Amendment might be struck that way. Unfortunately when they challenged it in Farmer v. Higgins, they lost. An important historical point for those who are critical of the NRAs later skittishness in supporting Parker/Heller.
