    Huge 7th circuit ruling against Chicago (2nd amendment)

    http://joshblackman.com/blog/?p=7500

    It was a smack down of epic proportions from the 7th circuit on the district court's rulling on Ezell.

    It:

    1. Creates a circuit split between Nordyke and Ezell.

    2. Adopts the 1A irreparable harm standard meaning that we're going to be able to get TRO's or preliminary injunctions against laws that infringe the right to keep or bear arms.

    3. Adopts strict scrutiny in everything but name.

    4. Invalidates most of the newly revised ordinance.

    5. Puts the en-banc 7th in a fun place.

    6. Requires the evidence that lots of us has been saying is required to regulate the 2A. Realize that LCAV/CSGV/Brady et al now have to actually spend real money to fund real studies to find actual causation to have any attempt of making an ordinance/law stick. Sunnyvale would need to spend $25K to $75K creating a study of actual harm to pass an ordinance restricting an FFL - for example.

    Preliminary injunctions are not final... but... They are un-final in name only. If you win a PI, you're going to win. Now, this may take a subtly different course because they changed the law, but the core concept here is that Chicago loses.

    I have a hunch what SAF has in store for us, and damn its going to be fun!

    This case begins a trend I expect a lot of. We create precedent out of California that we then dare California courts to create circuit splits on!

    #WINNING!
