Some thoughts - like this closing sentence from Bateman - simply bear repeating:

But there is no reason to suppose that a law-abiding person, fully qualified to purchase guns and ammunition for self-defense, becomes an incipient felon, mental incompetent or other danger – beyond the reach of generally-applicable civil and criminal law – merely because the government has declared itself unable to provide police protection.
Bateman represents a sympathetic case for both a broad precedent on the scope of carry as was as coverage of ammunition. With any luck, the Democratic Governor and not-too-gun-friendly Attorney General will feel obliged to contest this case to the appellate level. We can only hope that the new Republican legislature does not repeal the law before Gura can get a precedent-setting ruling in this case.
