9th Circuit Court rejects anti-gun law in CA

This was a surprise for me, but I guess the 9th Circuit is somewhat known for being unpredictable. The court overturned a lower court ruling that had upheld a county zoning law which had the effect of making it impossible to open a gun shop anywhere in the county. I haven't read the actual decision, but the article reports that the court delved deeply into the history of the 2nd Amendment, which could bode well if the government decides to appeal to the Supreme Court.

There's an open thread on this case here.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
