IMHO this is the "it" case. Even the Bradys admit to keeping a firearm for protection in the home. Outside the home is HUGE. Whether it is standard fair criteria for may issue or only shall issue CCW. I don't ever see the court ruling for "constitutional" or no permit carry against a state.
The problem you will have with Hughes is the common use test which I think the AR-15 has become. FA is not in common use (please don't use the circularity argument it won't work) and so it might be hard to do. I guess they would argue that Hughes is a de facto ban but so what? The court will say they are dnagerous and unusual and so not protected. I see legislative action before the court throws it out. My .02.
