Plaintiffs/Appellants filed their opening brief, yesterday morning (attached).

You may recall that the Fed.Gov has said that if 1) the right to vote, (2) the right to sit on a jury, and (3) the right to hold public office was not restored, then no rights were violated. This, regardless of Heller/McDonald that stated that the "right to keep and bear arms" was a fundamental right.

Since, in their view, no rights were lost, none can be restored.

Don Kilmer posits this, about the breadth of the governments position:

This tautology is not unlike the argument between the Queen and Alice over when jam can be served:
“You couldn't have it if you did want it,” the Queen said. “The rule is, jam tomorrow and jam yesterday – but never jam today.”

“It must come sometimes to 'jam today,'” Alice objected.

“No, it can't,” said the Queen. “It's jam every other day: today isn't any other day, you know.”

Through the Looking-Glass (5.16-18)
By Lewis Carroll
An entertaining read and a good brief.
