    Alan Gura offers the Court 2 questions. The first question is the most important one:

    If this question is answered in the affirmative, then the next question becomes the crux of the holding:

    "Proper cause," good and substantial," "good cause," these (and similar statements) are all the reasons that "May Issue" States have used to deny the right to its citizens. A grant of cert and an opinion in Gura's favor, will affect every State that does not use objective criteria in determining who may lawfully carry and who may not.

    Alan Gura starts right out of the gate, with:

    In various parts, Gura introduces the prior restraint argument (to keep that argument alive, I suspect), such as this:

    While there are quite a few good points in this petition, I believe the following paragraph is aimed directly at C.J. Roberts:

    Which I think is a good reminder.

    Additionally, I also like the ending:

    Now, if things go smoothly, we should know by March or April if the Court will grant cert. No chance of hearing the case until Oct. or Nov. of the next session. However, if cert is granted, it will likely put a hold on every single 2A case that we have been following.

    An inch at a time baby, an inch at a time. If this goes our way it won't be a turning point but it'll be an opportunity to create a turning point. If folks in New York City, Chicago, Maryland, and more parts of California join our ranks as lawful law-abiding concealed carry permit holders, it'll look good for us. Folks understand once the gun grabbers scrap one right they go for the next. Gun grabbing is an insatiable maw, liberty is a struggle against ignorance.

    I'm hopeful for a favorable decision in this matter as well. My county (in CA) didn't hand out permits without "good cause" until we elected a new Sheriff. Now all of a sudden we are "shall issue" (though not by law). The choice to hand out permits is entirely up to the Sheriff's dept. Not a good precedent when you put the power of discretion as to whether to affirm or deny a right, in the hands of politicians.

    This case is bigger than the 2nd Amendment.
    Much bigger.
    It concerns each and every right we have as Americans.
    The fundamental question (assuming there is a right to keep and bear arms outside the home, is this: Does the existence of a "Right" provide sufficient justification for its exercise or can the government require more.

    Hello Comrade.
    Why you complain.
    Reasonable and enlightened gun laws passed by Glorious Legislature eliminate all crime in Garden State.
    Counter-revolutionary idea in post reflect dangerous influence of subversive running dog Tea Party element.
