In event you haven't already seen it, and for those who might appreciate a concise summary of the origins and strategy behind the DC v. Heller case from the perspective of the plaintiffs, I recommend the October entry in the Journal of the Federalist Society by lead attorney Robert A. Levy entitled Anatomy of a Lawsuit: District of Columbia v. Heller.

This short essay is a riveting description of how Levy, Neily and Gura crafted their historic legal assault; the importance of the "standing" issue; the jealous waffling of the NRA throughout the process; and the total perfidy of the Bush Justice Department as seen by the man at the center of the storm.

All who love liberty (as well as the RKBA) will be forever indebted to these three great attorneys. Almost makes me regret all the snide lawyer jokes I've freely perpetuated for the past 30 years. Well, maybe not.

Good read, first NRA then Bush AG tried to muddy the waters and undermine the Heller legal team. Did NOT know that.

My understanding is that they tried to dissuade the lawsuit b'c they were afraid they would lose. 5-4 isn't a huge victory

Following that logic, when did they think they'd have a better chance with the inevitable Executive and Congressional changes looming on the horizon?:confused:
