... and if it does, this time we want to be sure the innocent party dies.
Bingo. That's exactly what the judge is betting on. He figures he can preach his anti-gun message and issue his arbitrary (and illegal) anti-gun ruling because it won't be worthwhile for the defendant to pursue an appeal.
Sometimes you have to take a stand on principle no matter how much it costs. It would be nice if the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund would fund the appeal and try to stick it to this fool for a judge.
Well, goodness gracious. I don't think I'll waste bandwidth anymore arguing that convicted felons must not be denied the rights of men. Apparently we have skipped right past "convicted felons" and gone right to "acquitted defendants."
I've actually had the mispleasure of being ruled against by this Judge, and when he was a lower district court judge for Cumberland County, he overstepped his boundaries. I'm no friend of his, and I'm disappointed to see him rise to where he is now.
This motivates me into doing something about this. Any reasonable suggestions?
If a judge from this State can order you to give up your ccw after using it lawfully to defend yourself, then why do the bother issuing them in the first place?? Oh I know!!, "Sorry Mr. Hines, you've used up your free chance to save your life, now give me your gun and permit, no one will ever threaten or try to kill you again,really"..
They should put on the back of Their States permits "GOOD FOR ONE FREE SELF-DEFENSE SHOOTING"
Contact the NRA Defense Fund on the guy's behalf and see if they'll provide a lawyer to handle an appeal.
I emailed the NRA
but it looks like quite a process, I think our thr NRA members should also send an email or phone call to expedite the removal of this tyrant from the bench.
The NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund gets numerous requests for assistance. Therefore, the Fund has a procedure for determining whether to fund a court case. The NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund has guidelines for submission of cases for the trustees' discretionary review. Cases presenting compelling unsettled or new issues of law are of special interest to the Fund. The Trustees normally meet three times a year: in the late spring, fall, and winter. A request for litigation funding should be submitted to the secretary not later than 30 days prior to the meeting in which the request is to be considered. Late submissions will be considered only upon emergency.
Applications for financial support must be submitted by an attorney. Requests should include, at a minimum, the following information:
1. Legal or constitutional issue to be resolved and how it would have a widespread favorable impact;
2. Summary of the facts;
3. Background of the litigants or other parties;
4. Summary of past and projected administrative and legal proceedings;
5. Projected costs of litigation for the different stages of the case and an explanation of the basis for such projected costs, including hourly attorney fees and projected number of hours;
6. Other sources of funding and amounts received and requested;
7. Probability of obtaining a favorable result and basis for conclusion; and
8. Probability of obtaining an award of attorney's fees and costs should this applicant prevail in the litigation.
The Fund shall not return submitted material. Therefore, originals should not be sent. Also, privileged attorney-client materials should not be sent.
A recipient of funding shall reimburse the Fund, to the extent of fund involvement, if costs or attorney's fees are awarded. Furthermore, a recipient of funding agrees to have his or her likeness and case used for fund raising by the Fund as a condition for receiving financial support.

For faster relief <grin> contact the Second Amendment Foundation. It's smaller and more nimble than the NRA. Thus, it can and often does act more quickly.
They may well jump into this one.
The judge based his judgment on The Bill of Needs, it's not The Bill of Rights anymore, where have you people been????
That was funny...
Criminal Justice strikes again.
They call it the "Criminal Justice System" for a reason (er, well, at least I do). It is not known as the "Law-Abiding Citizen Justice System" or "Victims Who've Been Assaulted by Criminals Justice System".
Criminal Justice at it's finest.
Happens more and more it seems.
I'll say it again for the ten billionth time- The law is whatever some village idiot in a black robe says it is- So much for the Bill of Rights-
That judge needs impeaching.
Sure looks that way, doesn't it?
I'm from Chicago, city with the best judges money can buy, so I can't help wondering if the judge in question has a conflict of interest in this matter. That'd by MY first priority in investigating.
Q: What do you call a lawyer with an I.Q. of 50?
A: "Your Honor"
We can guarantee absolutely that this will never happen to you again. Honest.
The Judge needs hanging in public. This country is out of control. I would fight this to the end.
Remember a lot of states the judges are appointed for LIFE as a political favor, MA is one of these. One of the most incompetent DA's assistant I encountered during my law enforcement career became a judge.
She was STUPID barley able to breathe, had her baby in the office and laughed when it's diaper overflowed on Photo's in an arson case ruining them and requiring many hours to reproduce. She worked for about 2 years and BINGO JUDGE!!!!!!
She was appointed due to being a state senators WIFE. Guess which party?
How about we all put up $1 each and he can go and buy another pistol.
How about $10 and we make the Judge eat his words.
