(Calguns alert) Oral Arguments in the Nordyke case will be held January 15, 2009
The Calguns Foundation would like to invite you to the Oral Arguments in the Nordyke case.
Nordyke is the case that will make the landmark DC v Heller case apply to California. This means an individual right to firearm ownership.
It is quite important for the actual Nordyke appeal that we pack the courtroom and the overflow. Our counsel would like to be able point out the large number of "The People" sitting in the courtroom that day who believe that this is an individual right that applies to California. Background on this case and why it is important HERE.
CGF will be hosting an event afterwords. If you can also attend that, please post that in THIS THREAD.
To remind, the argument is Thursday January 15, 2009. The argument will start at 1:30 PM in Courtroom 1, 3rd floor of the James R. Browning US Courthouse.
The address of the Court is:
United States Court of Appeals - 9th Circuit
95 Seventh Street
San Francisco, California 94103
This is at the corner of Mission and 7th and is one block from Civic Center BART. There are a couple of parking decks closer to the Convention Center that are easy walks.
You must have government issued photo ID to get in the building. Note that no weapons, or knives of any kind are allowed inside the Courthouse building. Photography is also not permitted. I'm making sure the court can seat a few hundred "The People" for this case. Please wear business attire - we want to look impressive. I'll be in a suit and tie.
A large showing of well dressed firearms owners will help prove the point that the Second Amendment matters.
Edited to add: Please cross post this to other forums, blogs, etc. A very large turnout is very important.

Gun Control: The premise that a woman found in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is morally superior to allowing that same woman to defend her life with a firearm.

While I know this matter (Nordyke) is important to many, your post is a cut and paste with no commentary by you. It meets the criteria of a "drive-by" post.
Even if it had been a valid post, it should have went here, which is an open thread on this topic.
