    Is due today. Thought I would start this post now rather than wait for it to be available online cuz every time I do that, someone always starts a thread before I do and then Art locks my thread!

    :evil:

    I have not been following the sequence of the case.

    Can you explain what the reply brief is, exactly?

    A reply brief is a vehicle for Gura to address all of the errors, lies, misrepresentations and stupid arguments propounded by Chicago and Chicago's amici. It is due 30 days after Chicago filed its brief, which is today and its scope is limited to matters raised by Chicago (and amici) in their previously submitted briefs.

    Do they get to reply to his reply, or is a reply brief a privilege of the plaintiff in such a case?

    No, after the reply is filed by Gura, the briefing for the case is closed and we set our alarm clocks to March 2, 2010 when the next scheduled event is oral argument.

    Bah, mine posted before yours :evil:

    Funny, just reading the intro is very entertaining. I guess when you so much in the right it's easy to make the other party look like idiots.

    Heh heh.....

    Nice. Gura managed to work in a Citizen's United cite. Just to let them know he was on his game I guess.

    OK, just finished the Gura brief. As always, it was a great piece of writing and well-argued in his typical, direct fashion. I liked the bit that enforcing the Constitution was also law enforcement.

    I agree with TexasRifleman. The brief put forth by Chicago et al seems almost embarrassingly inept.

    Clement preempts the issue of intermediate scrutiny being used against him in orals:

    Then a footnote just in case the Justices were not convinced:

    LOL

    That was a fun read, and even included some intentional humor.

    I don't read to many legal briefs, but actually enjoy Gura's offerings.

    Of course I'm biased, but from reading both of those....... I think we are headed for a big win.

    well I don't have time for a full read but just glancing through that it looks like he's about destroying Chicago's arguments :)

    Besides Gura's (which was typically superb), I thought the NRA did a pretty good job too. In the least it dismantled Chicago's argument completely.

    Chicago's law department rides to work on the short bus. They're shockingly incompetent. They settle the most transparently fraudulent police brutality cases, while fighting cases that are a slam dunk for the plaintiff, regularly incurring multi-million dollar judments. They couldn't find their own behinds with a phased array radar and a search party the size of the Chinese People's Liberation Army.

    Haven't read it yet

    I haven't read it yet, but I'm curious if there was mention of the INTENT of the ILLINOIS constitution, which is a paper tiger in practice...

    Help a guy out here.

    In my industry (engineering) a state that reserves 'police power' is reserving the right to make up additional laws as it sees fit, and can pass that power on to municipal governments. Is the term being used by Illinois to do the same, effectively keeping the authority to make up gun laws as it sees fit?

    "You citizens have the right to be armed, but the State will change that from time to time for it's own benefit. Learn to live with it."

    Perhaps that is the importance of incorporation to the US Constitution, eh?
