A Federal Judge in Illinois ruled that outlawing particularly dangerous weapons, high capacity magazines, and dangerous weapons accords with US history and tradition, meaning that the state of Illinois lawfully exercised their authority to control their possession, transfer, sale and manufacture by enacting a ban on commercial sales, which comports with the Second Amendment.

I love this decision because it doesn’t set court precedent, but is almost guaranteed to be overturned on appeal, which WILL have precedential meaning.

I get what you’re saying, but I’m still very surprised by this. The Seventh has usually been pretty good to us.

The linked article says Seventh Circuit Court and federal judge. I’ve not read this opinion yet but from the linked article I think this is precedent.

    Trial level courts don’t set precedent.

You are correct. The article got it wrong.


The first link on that page takes you to her actual opinion. Thanks for the pointer. I know what I’m reading and writing about today.

Benitez for the 9th Circus is trending towards overturning all those laws in multiple pending CA cases.
Duelling circuits tends to trigger cert. at SCOTUS, where Alito and Thomas are salivating to smack all this crap down once and for all.

Please, keep pushinjg all the buttons, gun control tards.
